The most interesting coaching search of all time may be turning its focus to Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy, per Jimmy Hyams. Tennessee hit the reset button after the Greg Schiano fiasco on Sunday. They were turned down by David Cutcliffe, per Chris Low. Most thought that the search would turn to Jeff Brohm or Tee Martin after.

That might be the case, but Jimmy Hyams is reporting that Currie has turned to Mike Gundy first.

Hyams also notes that Chad Morris, Kevin Steele, Jeremy Pruitt, Brent Venebles, Mike Norvell and Jeff Brohm are “potential candidates.”

Gundy reportedly turned the Vols down in 2012. To be honest, I’m not sure why this year should be any different. The rumors of Gundy popped up last night on message boards and Hyams has given situation some legs today, citing three sources.

Oklahoma State extended Gundy back in June of this year, for what it’s worth. After Sunday, landing Gundy would feel like an absolute grand slam.
