Vols on verge of losing defensive coordinator to ‘Horns?
Posted by John Taylor
College Football Talk

Earlier this past week, reports emerged that erstwhile Florida defensive coordinator Teryl Austin was expected to take the same position at Texas.

While all of the Austin-to-Austin talk has slowed to less than a crawl, there’s another name emerging as a possible replacement for Will Muschamp at UT.  And, oddly enough, he comes from the “other” UT”.

According to a website called FootballRumorMill.com, Tennessee coordinator Justin Wilcox is in serious discussions to replace Muschamp at Texas.  The site writes that Wilcox has not yet accepted the job, but a decision is expected soon.

Wilcox had been considered a candidate for Texas A&M’s coordinator position before ultimately leaving Boise State for the Volunteers in February.

Under Wilcox in the first year after Monte Kiffin followed his son to USC, the Vols’ defense went from 38th to 55th in scoring and from 22nd to 70th in yards allowed.  That would likely have more to do with player attrition and the situation in Knoxville than Wilcox’s coaching ability.
