Tennessee’s chaotic coaching search might again set its sights on a coach from the Big Ten. Tennessee has reached out to Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm about the opening, according to FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman.
The Volunteers are reportedly set to interview Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. Tennessee has also reached out to N.C. State head coach Dave Doeren, Feldman said.
Jeff Brohm in mix for Tennessee job
I’m told #Tennessee is pursuing #okstate’s Mike Gundy as GoPokes has reported. Sources also tells me the #Vols have reached out to #Purdue’s Jeff Brohm & #NCState’s Dave Doeren in their coaching search.

Brohm coached Purdue to 6-6 and bowl eligibility during his first season in West Lafayette. It will be the first bowl game for Purdue since 2012. Brohm, 46, was previously the coach at Western Kentucky.
Tennessee is still searching for a replacement for Butch Jones, who was fired earlier this month. It appeared the Vols had found their coach on Sunday when it was reported they had hired Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano. However, a few hours later, Tennessee backed out of the deal due to protests over Schiano’s ties to the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State.
