Justin Wilcox staying at Tennessee

Tennessee defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox said Friday night that he'll be back with the Vols next season.

Wilcox was in play at Texas and talked to the Longhorns about an opportunity to replace Will Muschamp as defensive coordinator. But Wilcox decided to stay put after coming to Tennessee last year from Boise State.

Wilcox had said prior to Tennessee's loss to North Carolina on Thursday in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl that he wasn't pursuing any jobs.
