On the other hand, the online site Down South quoted Leach as saying, "I'm on my way" to Knoxville, Tenn.

The Volunteers are "working on a deal" with Leach and could make an announcement as early as, Newy Scruggs of the NBC television affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reported.

The WSU coach returned to Pullman just after midnight and told Cougfan.com, "If I had (met with Currie), I wouldn't tell you and if I hadn't, I wouldn't tell you".

In his head-coaching search, Currie also had discussions with Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, Duke's David Cutcliffe, North Carolina State's Dave Doeren, Purdue's Jeff Brohm and Dan Mullen, who left Mississippi State to take Florida's job.

Last week, Tennessee came close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, but Volunteer fans expressed their disdsain for that idea because of unconfirmed conjecture that Schiano may have known about Jerry Sandusky's abuse of boys while Schiano was an assistant at Penn State.

Leach has done well as a coach over the years. Leach went 3-9 in his first season before taking Washington State to a bowl game in his second season.

Currie's time in Knoxville was brief-he was hired in February-but in those fleeting months, he presided over one of the more inept and hilarious coaching searches any that's been seen at any (formerly) major program in the past 10 years. He has a 38-27 mark in six seasons with the Cougars. FootballScoop reported that Leach "seems to have a very good shot at being offered the position" and that the WSU coach "would accept the position if offered".

"I want to be clear today", Davenport said. And then when it gets stuck, my kids turn it on. "And that's what we are going to do again". It also doesn't hurt that Leach is hilarious and will be an entertaining addition to the SEC.

There is a growing faction at Tennessee pushing to get Currie removed.
