Tennessee assistant coach Eddie Gran interviewed for the head coaching job at Memphis, a source close to the situation said.
Gran, who coaches tailbacks and special teams at UT, met with Memphis officials on Sunday.
Gran is considered one of UT's top recruiters, especially in South Florida.
Tommy West was fired by Memphis earlier this month after nine seasons.
Auburn assistant coach Trooper Taylor, LSU assistant coach Larry Porter and North Alabama head coach Terry Bowden are also thought to be candidates.
