Report: Larry Scott headed to Tennessee

Former University of Miami interim head coach Larry Scott is headed to the SEC, sources tell CanesTime.com.

According to multiple reports and sources to CanesTime.com, Larry Scott accepted a job on Butch Jones' staff at Tennessee on Monday afternoon.

Scott started the 2015 season as Miami's tight ends coach -- his third such season on Al Golden's staff. Following the firing of Golden, Scott was promoted to interim head coach by athletic director Blake James. Scott led Miami to a 4-2 finish to the season.

A former offensive lineman at the University of South Florida, Scott spent seven seasons on the USF staff from 2005-2012. He coached tight ends, running backs, and offensive line in different years there. Golden hired him before the 2013 season to coach tight ends for the Hurricanes.

Widely considered the top recruiter on Miami's staff, Scott did an admirable job guiding the Hurricanes the second half of the 2015 season. He is set to replace Mark Elder on the Tennessee staff as their tight ends coach.

Georgia hired former offensive coordinator James Coley Sunday, which means the Hurricanes have officially moved on from every assistant coach on last year's staff except for wide receivers coach Kevin Beard. It's unclear whether Beard will be on Richt's staff but he's the only remaining 2015 coach left.
