KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton says he has not offered the Vols coaching job to anyone yet.

There was at least one news report Wednesday that Tennessee had made an offer to former Oakland Raiders coach Lane Kiffin and that Kiffin was believed to be assembling a staff of assistants.

Hamilton says any report of a job offer is "incorrect information" and that the search process is ongoing. He said he hopes to name a coach soon.

Coach Phillip Fulmer is being forced out of the position after 17 seasons. With one game remaining, the Vols own a 4-7 overall record and a 2-5 Southeastern Conference record.

Tennessee hosts Kentucky (6-5, 2-5) on Saturday and will celebrate "Phillip Fulmer appreciation day."
