Cutcliffe Expected to Become Duke Head Coach

(WVLT) -- GoVolsXtra, WVLT Sports Overtime's media partner is reporting that sources on UT campus say Tennessee offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe has been offered the duke head coaching job and that he is expected to accept the position.

There is no indication yet whether Cutcliffe would remain with the team through the Jan. 1 Outback Bowl.

Cutcliffe's current tenure as the Vols' offensive coordinator has been two years; however, he coached 17 seasons at UT in the 1980's and 90's. In between his two stints in Knoxville, Cutcliffe served as head coach for the only time in his career, guiding Ole Miss to a 44-29 record over a span of six seasons before being fired in 2004.

    Hey VOL TV! Tell Phil to at least interview Scott Sanderson from Appalachian State.If he is as good as it seems, he could be a great fit with our system. Unless, we want to go with a pro style attack again? Go VOLS! Good luck to David Cutcliffe.

    VOL TV, Here we go again......This road we are traveling is going round and roounnd. The offensive system ,was just beginning to take a positive turn into the new age of college football. I hope and pray Phil will take his time and make a decision that will keep us headed in that direction, and IT WIll make or break him this time. A good choice could be the offensive coordinator with Appalachian State. Please let Phil in on this.... Thank you and have a GREAT CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
