Report: Tennessee could be looking to double Mike Gundy’s salary


The seemingly never ending coaching carousel has picked up with the debacle at Tennessee, and Mike Gundy is reportedly heavily involved. When news broke this morning that Tennessee was targeting Gundy, many scoffed. Now, in the mid-morning, we’re not so sure.

Robert Allen of Triple Play Radio reports that Tennessee could be doubling Gundy’s already large salary of 4.2 million.

Money like that is nothing to sneeze at, and with the news that Gundy is taking a meeting with Tennessee in Dallas at 11 AM, it appears that he’s actually considering it.

Tennessee matches a lot of what Gundy would look for. It’s fertile hunting grounds, fertile recruiting grounds, and a fanbase that might welcome the fast paced head coach with open arms.

The money that Tennessee is reportedly willing to throw at him indicates a little desperation on their part, though. The Vols administration cannot afford to miss on this one.

For now, at least, there seems to be some seriousness to these rumors and reports.
