New AD bringing Josh Heupel to join him at Vols”

Aberdeen native Josh Heupel is the new football head coach at the University of Tennessee. Tennessee called a team meeting for 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

Tennessee is finalizing a deal to hire UCF head coach Josh Heupel to the same position, industry sources confirm to NewsChannel 5. White cast a wide net through the Parker Search Firm and reached out to and/or interviewed several candidates, including Penn State's James Franklin, Cincinnati's Luke Fickell, SMU's Sonny Dykes, Minnesota's P.J. Fleck and Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott, among others.

The move follows the departure of UCF's Athletic Director Danny White last week, who also moved to the University of Tennessee as its athletic director. "I saw that firsthand, and you can see it in his coaching record", White said.

Heupel compiled a 28-8 record as head coach of the Knights over his three-year tenure. Heupel went 12-1 in his first season in 2018 and finished 6-4 this past season. As a term of his contract, Heupel will owe a $3.5 million buyout. He ranks second all-time at the school in passing and led the Sooners to the 2000 BCS National Championship while finishing second to Florida State QB Chris Weinke for the Heisman. He was Missouri's offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in 2016-17 prior to landing the UCF head coaching job.

He will become Tennessee's fifth head coach, not counting interim or acting coaches, since the end of the 2008 season.
