ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg is reporting that the Volunteers plan to talk to Sumlin about their head coaching vacancy.
This comes on the heels of North Carolina State head coach Dave Doeren, a previous candidate for the Volunteers’ job, telling his team he plans on remaining with the Wolfpack (more on that here).
Sumlin was ousted from College Station following a 7-5 regular season. He finished 51-26 in six seasons with the Aggies. Prior to that, Sumlin was the Houston Cougars head coach for four seasons.
