Exploring Tenuta rumor

At this late hour, I can’t confirm anything on the comment posted by “Brad” that he heard on an Atlanta radio station that the Huskies have hired former Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta as their new defensive coordinator.
What I will say is that the radio station he cited, WQXI 790, is the flagship station for Georgia Tech football, so assuming “Brad” heard what he wrote he heard, the people there might know something.
Also, Tenuta has not gotten any of the jobs of late in which he was rumored to be involved and is still on the market.
He was thought to have a chance to go to LSU, but the Tigers just decided this week to apparently go in a different direction (you can read about that here).
He was also initially thought headed to South Carolina, but the Gamecocks also went with someone else.
Tenuta was the DC at Georgia Tech the last six years (read bio here) but lost that job when head coach Chan Gailey was fired. Tenuta, who was also associate head coach, stayed on to coach Tech in the Humanitarian Bowl against Fresno State, a game Tech lost 40-28. He was then not retained by new Tech coach Paul Johnson.
This Sporting News story on the coaches convention a few weeks ago referred to Tenuta as “considered by many to be the best in the business.”
