Fulmer expected to be named Vols Athletic Director

Reports: Mike Leach offered University of Tennessee head coach position

Tennessee's disastrous coaching search has cost athletic director John Currie his job.

He said he "has been charged with finding the right coach for this circumstance: head coach, assistant coach, coordinator". Though we can debate all day whether anger over Schiano was a product of skepticism over his resume or the allegation that he helped cover up child sexual assault at Penn State, the situation was a PR fiasco of the highest order.

A source told Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman that Tennessee reached out to Brohm and North Carolina State's Dave Doeren. The whole search has become a punchline.

Is this all Currie's fault?

Currie's familiarity with Tennessee was seen as a selling point when he got hired.

Yep, life comes at you fast. She says Fulmer will immediately take over the coaching search.

Phillip Fulmer is expected to be announced as the new athletic director at today's press conference.

When word leaked Thursday night that Currie had met with Leach, it was mostly met with approval by fans on social media. Before Leach took over as head coach in 2012, the Cougars hadn't had a winning season since 2003 when they went 10-3.

Tennessee fired football Butch Jones last month and was close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano on Sunday.

In a text message to the AP early Friday, Leach said: "Nothing to report". Before coming to Kansas State, he worked at Tennessee for about a decade in various capacities, most recently as a chief deputy and adviser to former athletic director Mike Hamilton. Leach went 84-43 in 10 seasons at Texas Tech from 2000 to 2009 but was sacked amid allegations that he mistreated a player. Currie flew back to Knoxville after the meeting.
