Tennessee defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox — speculated to be a front-runner for the same position at Texas — spoke to the media today and made it clear that his focus is on UT’s bowl game… not a new job in Austin.
“Here’s the deal, I have a great job at Tennessee. I have not been offered any other jobs, I’m not in discussions about any other jobs, I believe 100% in what we’re doing here at Tennessee. I back coach Derek Dooley 100% and where this program is going. My sole focus, 100%, along with the other coaches is getting ready for North Carolina. That’s what I’ve spent my time doing an will continue spending my time doing. That’s about it.”
Apparently saying, “I’m not interested in the Texas job” would have really locked him 100% into Tennessee.
And no coaches lock themselves in that tightly these days.
