UT’s Wilcox The Frontrunner For Arizona State?

Yesterday, it looked like June Jones had the Arizona State job in hand.  Rumors hit the messageboards that Jones would target a top defensive coordinator so he could focus on his offense and the name that got the most play was that of Tennessee’s Justin Wilcox.

A day later, Jones is heading back to SMU with his tail between his legs and Wilcox is reportedly a hot candidate for the head coaching job himself.

John Gambadoro of KTAR-AM in Phoenix tweeted the following this afternoon:


“While its impossible to determine how many cooks are in the ASU kitchen — I am being told that Tenn DC Wilcox is a frontrunner for the job”


Wilcox is a West Coast guy having played at Oregon and coached at California and Boise State.  Derek Dooley — who had coached against Wilcox in the WAC — lured him to Knoxville where in his second year he had Tennessee ranked #28 in the nation in total defense and #35 in scoring defense.  Not bad considering the youth and inexperience on UT’s roster.

Last offseason, Texas made a run at Wilcox before settling on Manny Diaz as defensive coordinator.

I will give Dooley and staff a minimum of 4 years then judge on the 5th. Unfortunately we were driven into the ground by the last 2 staffs and it will take time. I'm impressed with the recruiting and the improvement being made by players on the field. Just had 4 added to the all SEC freshman team which speaks highly of the coaches not to mention 2 on the all SEC team. Be patient and Go Vols!!

He knows Dooley is most likely getting fired next year. He needs to get while the gettings good.

He needs to stay here and continue working on what he started. Wilcox has not done what he said he had set out to do. Therefore leaving for ASU would be grossly disingenuous.

I hope he stays at UT. Hart and Dooley need to sweeten his deal so he'll stay.

I never got the impression that UT fans have been happy with Wilcox, but I haven't followed it closely so I don't know.

I really hope that we are able to hold onto him. It takes at least one season for players to start understanding a new defense sceme. If he leaves and we don't promote from within it could set the program back again.

Has Dooley gotten his team to buy in yet? He's had two years.
