If you read or listen to the words very carefully, it's exactly what he's 'supposed' to say, but leaving open the possibility, if they seek him out.
He's not going to publicly lobby for the job, but possibly his agent could, or more likely his agent is getting a feel for the lay of the Knoxville land.
"Plausible deniability".

To be clear, I'm not saying he *is* seeking the job, just that his "denial" didn't strike me as anything close to absolute.

Noland to UT Knoxville may be picking up steam. From John Brice of GoVols247:

"Cleaning up some more on the athletics directors search, as well as that of the chancellor, and Tennessee still seems most intrigued with a Dr. Brian Noland/Dave Blackburn chancellor/athletics director combo. Noland is under contract at ETSU, and draws rave reviews; ditto Blackburn."

Another excerpt:
"But it’s the UT system, and Dr. Joe DiPietro likes both men, per multiple sources around the state. Also, there are indications Tennessee is poised to forgo its fascination with outside blood and look inward. Only time will tell, but Blackburn studying under Dave Hart to assume the mantle with Noland eventually working under DiPietro hardly sounds bound for a UT Knoxville campus all too familiar with the mine-shafts on Rocky Top from outside influences."

A total rumor but someone on Twitter tweeted that Noland turned down UT:

"Wow, President Noland turned down an offer to be chancellor at UT that would have doubled his salary. The man loves ETSU."

Take it for what its worth.

Something to monitor; Joe DePietro has resigned as the University of Tennessee system president. If you connect the dots it would seam to line up with Bill Haslam leaving politics that he would be in line for this.

Brian Noland was a finalist for this last time though http://archive.knoxnews.com/news/local/j...1831.html/

This is different by the way from the UTK chancellor job that Beverly Davenport is currently in.

Knoxville News-Sentinel story says Gov. Haslam has said he doesn't want the job. Speculation season begins.

A dose of reality here.

The UT system and UTK in particular is not on great terms with the Tennessee Legislature. While individual legislators may applaud DiPietro's retirement, it will be a difficult hire. President of the UT system is not exactly a destination job in higher ed realms. Don't misinterpret me, it is an okay job, but then there is the issue of dealing with the political realities of a Republican super majority.

Did I see Ron Ramsey driving back and forth in front of DiPietro's office with his music turned up?
