I have nothing to back it up other than rumor and innuendo but talk is heating up regarding Fleck to the Vols.

New Tennessee AD Danny White is playing it close to the vest, as is his style. Several names out there in the media, including Fleck, but he'll probably take someone no one has ever suspected! Has to be someone squeaky clean though, NCAA charges are pending!
 
I read a Minnesota insiders article this morning saying that Tennessee has reached out (Fleck was 1 of 3 that the UT search consultant firm came back with), but there hasn't been a lot of movement on Fleck's side. At least yet.

Whomever Tennessee hires, he's definitely going to have to contend with some serious sanctions, which will make rebuilding challenging initially. While Fleck is capable of a rebuild, I wonder if he's really that interested in taking on a project as challenging as Tennessee with a dark cloud of violations and plenty of quality competition. I'm not convinced the job is a step up for someone like Fleck.

I'm seeing the Clemson OC high on the rumor list, which might make sense given the project this will be. Hugh Freeze is another name, which would be a great get.

I don't think they're taking Freeze while under the NCAA magnifying glass.
 
yes I think Freeze is on ice. Not a hot candidate right now.

He's making 4.75 million at Minny so it would have to be a very substantial offer to lure him away.
