KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- Tennessee Athletic Director Dave Hart won't be taking any public input on his search for Tennessee's next head football coach, but that won't stop the speculation.

Here are a handful of candidates who are sure to be mentioned in the coming days and weeks:

(In alphabetical order)

-- Duke coach David Cutcliffe. The former Tennessee offensive coordinator and Ole Miss head coach would be welcomed back home by many members of the UT fan base, but others would prefer to go in a new direction rather than a return to the past.

-- Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher. He's got a plum gig at FSU, but he's also got a new boss. The resulting power play could push Fisher's name into the picture for jobs at Tennessee, Auburn or elsewhere.
