SFN is hearing the rumors of Tennessee’s interest in NC State Offensive Coordinator, Matt Canada, from too many well placed sources to just blow it off. After hearing that Canada might’ve formally interviewed for Volunteer’s open OC position, NBC’s College Football Talk posted this about an hour ago:
According to Jimmy Hyams of radio station WNML in Knoxville, Jones has interviewed five outside candidates for the Vols’ vacancy at offensive coordinator: current Michigan administrator and former UM coordinator Mike DeBord, as well as 2014 coordinators Matt Canada (North Carolina State), Clay Helton (USC), Noel Mazzone (UCLA) and Kurt Roper (not retained at Florida). Additionally, UT wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni is listed by Hyams as a candidate as well.
A few hours ago, this article that quotes Butch Jones as saying the search is going ‘exceptionally well’ was updated.

Tennessee is making a run at NC State OC Matt Canada to fill the same position there. I believe Canada is getting around $500k and if the Vols offer $750k that would be hard to turn down. Must be nice to have that SEC money.

Of course, NC State fans will find it more than a little ironic that
NO REDZONE Noel Mazzone might be a candidate for the position that would be more highly coveted than Canada.
