Dooley: No Texas offer for Vols DC Wilcox

Tennessee coach Derek Dooley says defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox has not been offered a job at Texas.

Dooley was asked about an unconfirmed report that the Longhorns have targeted Wilcox to replace Will Muschamp as defensive coordinator, and did not say if Wilcox had spoken with Texas.

Muschamp became head coach at Florida on Dec. 11.

Wilcox was not made available to media after the Vols' Monday practice.


Tennessee (6-6) ranked 10th in the Southeastern Conference in total defense, giving up 381.92 yards per game, and ninth in scoring defense at 24.7 points.

Wilcox, 34, joined the Tennessee staff in February after spending four seasons at Boise State.
