``For me, it's putting long-term goals in place,'' Drayton said Tuesday night. ``Florida is a phenomenal place and I love it here. But if I want to reach my long-term goals, I need to get into a situation where the running back is involved.
``Florida has an explosive offense, but if you have NFL aspirations, you need to be in a system where the running back is featured. Who can doubt the running back tradition at Tennessee? Tennessee has had big-time backs and I understand Phil's mindset toward the running game.''
Drayton also said it's a chance to learn another system and to add to his resume.
The resume includes a stint with the Green Bay Packers as the offensive quality control and assistant special teams coach, working with Bruce Warwick, who is UT's director of football operations.
DeBord, who coaches tight ends, has coached with former Michigan quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler, who interviewed with Fulmer in Tampa before the Outback Bowl.
If Fulmer hires DeBord, don't be surprised if he also hires Loeffler.
Clawson and DeBord are considered the top two candidates to replace David Cutcliffe.
