KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor has told some players that he's been offered the offensive coordinator position at his alma mater Baylor.

Tennessee receiver Austin Rogers said Monday that Taylor was offered the position over the weekend and that Taylor planned to sit down with coach Phillip Fulmer and talk about his future with the Vols.

On Saturday, Tennessee offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe was introduced as the Duke Blue Devils' head coach.

Rogers said he's under the impression that if Taylor is offered the offensive coordinator position at Tennessee that he'll stay, but will probably go if he isn't.

Tennessee spokeswoman Tiffany Carpenter said Monday night that under the school's policy it doesn't comment on whether a coach takes another position until after the other school has made an announcement.
