Dan Radakovich To Tennessee Derailed By Georgia Tech Violation, According To Report

This isn't the first time it's been murmured that Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets athletic director was all set to take over the Tennessee Volunteers job -- for some reason, he's been a rumored candidate since the very beginning -- but it is the most prominent report on the matter yet. David Climer of the Tennesseean says, "it appeared that the UT All-Sports Picnic would serve as a local introduction of Dan Radakovich as the new athletics director," but UT chose to step away due to the NCAA's punishment of the Jackets.

Radakovich has said he's never even talked to the Vols about such a move.

Climer adds that Radakovich would've received a contract worth $800,000 per year plus incentives. (He also wonders how that search firm, which was based in Atlanta, didn't know about Tech's NCAA troubles, but multiple national and local media outlets missed the story for almost two years as well.)
