When Tennessee senior associate athletic director David Blackburn visited the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on Monday, he said that after 22 years at UT he felt ready "to be a leader and to run the athletics department" at UTC.

It appears he will have a chance to prove it. Sources familiar with the athletic director search told the Times Free Press on Friday that Blackburn has been offered the job. As of Friday night negotiations were ongoing, but a contract had not been signed.

An introductory news conference could be held as soon as Tuesday.
