Found December 04, 2012 on SCACC Hoops:
According to SB Nation's Steven Godfrey, UNC's Larry Fedora interviewed with Tennessee on Tuesday evening. North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora is a serious candidate to become the next head coach at the University of Tennessee, as multiple sources have confirmed the first-year Tar Heels head coach interviewed with the Volunteers in New York City late Tuesday. Assuming this is true and based on what else has gone on with this search, this probably represents a foray beyond Fedora simply doing it for experience. Meanwhile ESPN has reported that Louisville's Charlie Strong tops Tennessee's list so it will be interesting to see what Fedora is doing fits with that news. It could signal that Strong is out of the picture and the focus of the search is on Fedora. Whatever the case for UNC, having your head coach interview for an SEC job after only one season creates a situation Bubba Cunningham could certainly do without.
