Mike Gundy Turns Down Reported 6-Year, $42 Million Offer from Tennessee

Report: OSU's Mike Gundy meeting with Tennessee about coaching vacancy

While Tennessee emissaries spoke Monday night to Purdue coach Jeff Brohm, embattled athletics director John Currie traveled to Dallas to meet with Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy, a previous target in UT coaching searches.

Gundy's current salary is $4.2 million according to the USA Today coaches' database, and some reports on Tuesday indicated UT would be willing to pay him more than $8 million per year. Brett McMurphy reports that he was offered a six-year, $42 million contract.

Allen said the meeting was set to happen in Dallas Tuesday morning. The buyout will be reduced by $1 million if the contract is not automatically extended, but will increase back to $3 million if the term is later extended back to five years. OSU officials reportedly knew about of the situation close to 24 hours before. Gundy, now 50, famously chided a reporter while defending a player in a 2007 postgame news conference by using the phrase, "Come after me". They also offered him the job in 2012 before it went to Butch Jones.

This was the second year in row that Gundy reportedly met with another university about a coaching vacancy.

Tennessee's tumultuous football coaching search has reportedly zeroed in on a new candidate who is actually an old candidate.

Gundy is in his 13th season at OSU, where he also played quarterback at before his coaching career began with the Cowboys as a wide receivers coach after graduating in 1990. There's a range of debate from the likelihood of his accepting the job, to who could possibly replace Gundy at Oklahoma State.
