Tennessee has missed out once again on another man to be its next head football coach, as Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy has decided to stay in Stillwater and continue to coach the Cowboys, per Brett McMurphy.
Sources: Mike Gundy has decided to remain at Oklahoma State. He met w/Tennessee officials Tuesday in Dallas. Gundy reportedly had a 6-year, $42 million deal from Tennessee, but will remain at his alma mater https://t.co/m1igbKIEpx

At a players’ meeting on Tuesday night, Gundy alerted his team to the decision.
As the head coach of the Cowboys since 2005, Gundy has led Oklahoma State to an overall record of 113-53, including 69-42 in Big 12 play.
He is the latest coach to turn down the Volunteers as the search for Butch Jones’ replacement has become a mess in Knoxville. Duke head coach David Cutcliffe said no to the Volunteers, while Greg Schiano, who was set to become the head coach, was not hired due to fan pressure over the decision and Schiano’s alleged cover up of Jerry Sandusky’s crimes while at Penn State.
