ESPN reports Tucker, defensive coordinator at Georgia, and Steele, former Vols player and assistant coach, will meet with Phillip Fulmer in New York on Tuesday.
Fulmer also reportedly spoke with Tee Martin, USC offensive coordinator, extensively by phone on Tuesday. Sources say it was a “very positive conversation moving in the right direction.”
The moves come just days after Fulmer was named the new athletic director amid Tennessee’s disastrous search for a new coach.
The university’s chancellor suspended their former AD, John Currie, after multiple coaches turned down the job.
