Taylor attended Vol Peach Bowl workouts Monday and Tuesday on the outskirts of Atlanta, solidifying his status as the No. 1 man on Phillip Fulmer's list of coaching candidates.
Since McCorvey coached running backs and Taylor has worked exclusively with wide receivers, Tennessee likely will move Pat Washington from wide receivers to running backs if/when Taylor is added to the staff. Coincidentally, Taylor and Washington worked on the same staff once previously, in 1994 at Baylor.
Should Taylor assume command of UT's receivers, he will have a glut of talent at his disposal. Tennessee's wideout corps in 2004 will include seniors Tony Brown and Derrick Tinsley, juniors James Banks, Chris Hannon and C.J. Fayton, sophomores Jayson Swain and Bret Smith, plus redshirt freshmen Robert Meachem and Bill Grimes.
