In recent days, the search by the Tennessee Volunteers to find the replacement for Cuonzo Martin turned from potentially trying to find a bug-name hire, to the young, successful Michael White of Louisiana Tech. Now Gary Parrish of CBS is reporting that Tennessee might want to forget about bringing White in, as it looks like he’ll be staying with the Bulldogs.
A source told @CBSSports that talks between Tennessee and Michael White have cooled. He’s likely to stay at Louisiana Tech. Story coming …

White was a phenomenal choice by the Vols to target. He recently led Louisiana Tech to nearly 30 wins this past season and claimed a share of the Conference USA title in their first year as a member of the conference.
But as it looks right now, barring any sort of unforeseen circumstances, White won’t be taking his crack at trying to claim a piece of the SEC Championship in 2014 as the leader in Knoxville.
