Report: Candidate for Tennessee job 'not interested' in taking over Vols' program
The Tennessee Volunteers are in the middle of a search for their new football coach after firing Jeremy Pruitt.
There are a number of candidates who the Vols are reportedly interested in, with 1 of those candidates being Minnesota’s PJ Fleck.
However, don’t count on Fleck rowing his boat to Knoxville any time soon. Per Star Tribune columnist Chip Scoggins’ sources, Fleck isn’t interested in the job:
No updates surfaced Monday, but my sources indicate that Fleck is not interested in that job. Fleck’s agent Bryan Harlan declined to mention any school specifically but said in a phone conversation that he has received inquiries from multiple schools regarding Fleck the past few seasons.
Of course, coaches have said they’re not interested in jobs in the past, only to leave for them anyway, so take this report with a grain of salt.
But, it would be tough to lure Fleck to Tennessee, so we’ll see what happens with the Vols moving forward.
