After the Greg Schiano-John Currie fiasco on Sunday afternoon, a large portion of the fanbase turned their attention to longtime Tennessee assistant David Cutcliffe. He’s seemingly been involved with the Tennessee job every time it has been open, but he’s never taken it.

That won’t change this time around, reports Chris Low.

Volquest.com reported that Tennessee was looking into the current Duke head coach late on Sunday night. Wes Rucker of GoVols 247 said that a “torrent” of former players wanted either Cutcliffe or Tee Martin to get this job.

Cutcliffe turning Tennessee down isn’t all that surprising. He will be 64 next fall and taking over a program like this clearly wasn’t high on his wishlist. He’s done an admirable job at Duke and I don’t blame him for not wanting to jump into the fire here.

With his name out of the mix, I’d expect the noise to really ramp up around Tee Martin.
