Highlights:  Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele is not headed to Knoxville to join Volunteer coaching staff despite yesterdays rumors.

Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele had an offer to return to his alma mater, but reports from South Carolina on Tuesday night indicated the former Vols linebacker and assistant coach would stay with the Tigers.

He got his start in coaching in 1981 as a graduate assistant under Majors. The following year he was promoted to an outside linebackers position. He then became recruiting coordinator and linebackers coach at New Mexico State for the 1983 season.

The University of Tennessee football team still doesn’t have a defensive coordinator, but whoever takes the job will have to cope without another of last season’s best players.

Junior cornerback Dennis Rogan was on the NFL’s list of early draft entrants, meaning his college career is finished.

Rogan, a versatile defensive back and return specialist from Knoxville, would have been a key piece for new head coach Derek Dooley’s first UT defense. The 5-foot-10 Rogan could play any spot in the secondary, and he made decisive plays in several Volunteers’ games the past three seasons.

Former Volunteers head coach Lane Kiffin called Rogan “one of the most underrated players” in the Southeastern Conference.

UT junior tight end Luke Stocker also flirted with the draft but opted to return for a final season. He confirmed the news on his Twitter page.  Read full story here
