An Oklahoma State spokesman confirmed to The Oklahoman Saturday night that Tennessee has not contacted OSU athletic director Mike Holder for permission to speak to Cowboy coach Mike Gundy about the Volunteers’ head coaching vacancy.
The Knoxville News Sentinel first reported that Tennessee had not spoken to Holder. Volquest.com, Tennessee’s Rivals.com affiliate, reported Friday that Gundy would interview with Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart on Sunday.
Gundy is in his eighth season as the head coach at his alma mater. He signed a lucrative new contract in January that goes through the 2019 season.
