The Mike Gundy-to-Tennessee story might have taken another turn leading the Oklahoma State coach to a potential new job.
The Tulsa World reports that according to FlightAware.com, a plane owned by the University of Tennessee was scheduled to land in Stillwater at about 3 p.m. CT.
Tuesday’s meeting isn’t the first time that Gundy has meet with the Volunteers. After the 2012 season — the last time the school had a vacancy — Gundy met with Tennessee officials. The Volunteers eventually hired Butch Jones, but Gundy told CBS Sports in 2013 that “at one point, that’s where we thought we were going to go.”
Gundy, who turned 50 in August, was a four-year starter at quarterback for the Cowboys from 1986-89.
His coaching with the Cowboys has him pointed for a place in the College Football Hall of Fame. He has notched a 112-53 record during his 13-season stint with the Cowboys. He currently has a streak of 12 consecutive seasons with a bowl appearance.
But his most recent 9-3 season was a disappointment. The Cowboys were picked to challenge for the Big 12 title and a potential spot in the College Football Playoffs, but lost three games at home to knock themselves out of contention.
