Shannon Being Considered as DC at.....

Hey this is about a week old, but I didn't know it so it was news to me (from Sporting News):

Upon further review, you can tap the brakes on speculation about Randy Shannon being named Texas' next defensive coordinator in the immediate future. But keep him on the short list of candidates, because he's clearly interested in Texas. The question is whether the interest is mutual.

After lots of buzz earlier today on Austin-based radio stations and internet sites about Shannon being in town and headed to campus for an interview, it turns out that the private plane from Miami to Austin thought to be carrying Shannon had a different passenger.

So there was no interview with coach Mack Brown . And it is unclear when Brown will name a successor to Will Muschamp, Texas' former defensive coordinator who was named Saturday night as the new head football coach at Florida, replacing Urban Meyer.

Shortly after Florida's announcement about Muschamp's hiring, Shannon apparently backed out of discussions with Kentucky -- which was prepared to name him as the Wildcats' new defensive coordinator -- and contacted Brown to express interest in the vacancy in Austin, based on published reports.
