KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Duke coach and former Tennessee assistant David Cutcliffe may be a target in the Volunteers' search for a new head coach.
Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton has not commented publicly on who his candidates are to replace Lane Kiffin, who abruptly resigned Tuesday night to coach Southern California.
But Duke spokesman Art Chase called reports of a deal between Cutcliffe and Tennessee inaccurate.
Air Force coach Troy Calhoun released a statement Thursday saying he was looking forward to coaching the Falcons again in 2010, ending speculation that he was a candidate.
Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp and TCU coach Gary Patterson have both said they have not been contacted by Tennessee.
