Tennessee's search for its next football coach took yet another unexpected turn late Monday night and throughout Tuesday as the Vols are trying to find their replacement for the fired Butch Jones.
Low says that Tennessee is prepared "to make Gundy one of the SEC's highest-paid coaches" if he accepts the job.
What is interesting is that Gundy signed a five year extension with the Cowboys this past summer raising his annual salary to $4.2 million with a $125,000 increase each following year.
"Sources said Gundy has had "frustrations" in the past with Oklahoma State's administration, especially with his most recent contract negotiations", McMurphy reported. With the move, Gundy would head a program that clearly has the state's undivided support, unlike in Oklahoma, where the Cowboys are often overshadowed by the Sooners.
Gundy, an Oklahoma native and Oklahoma State alum, has spent the majority of his career working in his home state.
Gundy hasn't just been the head coach of Oklahoma State for the last 13 seasons; he also played there.
The Cowboys finished 9-3 this season and finished 3rd in the Big 12.
