Muschamp on top of Tennessee list
By Anthony Casson
Since it was announced Tuesday evening that Lane Kiffin is leaving Tennessee to become the head coach at USC, UT has been on the search for a proper replacement; the top of the list has Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator at Texas.
Will Muschamp, DC at Texas and head-coach-in-waiting, came to the Longhorns from Alabama starting in 2008. Since then he has become a leading force behind Texas’ success defensively. It’s no surprise that Tennessee is looking in his direction. Muschamp had years of experience with Alabama under head coach Nick Saban. SEC familiarity might be one of UT’s requirements, or at least high preferences.
OrangeBloods.com has reported, however, that many sources at Texas are “not concerned” with Muschamp leaving. The same sources say Muschamp is comfortable with his situation and there is no worry the Volunteers will sweep him away from the Longhorns program.
Any confirmation of his decision will be reported.
