Tennessee parts ways with AD John Currie amid tumultuous coaching search

Report: Deal “Not Imminent” with Mike Leach

Reports: Mike Leach offered University of Tennessee head coach position

Currie was in Los Angeles Thursday, reportedly interviewing Leach, and Leach flew back to Pullman, Washington, when it was done. The Volunteers also went after Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy and N.C. State coach Dave Doeren.

In a text message to the AP early Friday, Leach said: "Nothing to report". The Vols reportedly had a deal in place with the Ohio State defensive coordinator on Sunday morning, but it fell through by the end of the day after the university heard from the fan base, state representatives and local business owners.

On the other hand, the online site Down South quoted Leach as saying, "I'm on my way" to Knoxville, Tenn.

Currie's time in Knoxville was brief-he was hired in February-but in those fleeting months, he presided over one of the more inept and hilarious coaching searches any that's been seen at any (formerly) major program in the past 10 years.

Initial reports linking Leach to the Tennessee job surfaced on Saturday, hours before the Cougars and the Huskies played in the 2017 Apple Cup.

The FootballScoop report also noted that if Leach did elect to leave, WSU would move "without hesitation to promote defensive coordinator Alex Grinch".

And to think it was less than a year ago that Currie's hiring was lauded as a "great call", "great hire", "the smart thing" and "a very good get". In addition, they're tied for fourth in the country with 27 turnovers gained and rank seventh in tackles-for-loss per game (8.4). Under the third-year DC, the Cougars have made significant strides and are now ranked 15th in the FBS, allowing 313.6 yards per game.
