Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy will remain with the program after being courted by Tennessee, according to a report from Brett McMurphy.
Tennessee reportedly offered Gundy $7 million a year for six years at a meeting in Dallas on Tuesday. That dwarfs the $4.2 million per year he currently makes at Oklahoma State. Future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning even made a pitch. However, Gundy turned down the offer to remain with his alma mater.

Gundy has been pursued for many other jobs during his time at Oklahoma State, including Florida this year and Baylor last year. He was reportedly offered the Tennessee job in 2012. However, the job eventually went to Butch Jones.
Gundy, 50, is the all-time winningest coach at Oklahoma State. He has led the program to a 113-53 record in his time with the school.
