On Wednesday night, reported Tennessee athletics director Mike Hamilton was in Texas. Hamilton stated during a press conference in Knoxville that he hoped to have a new head coach named soon.

Interim Tennessee football coach Kippy Brown said an announcement could happen as soon as Friday.

Brown, who has extensive experience as a college and NFL offensive coach, said he is definitely interested in the job and called himself a "legitimate candidate."
