Cutcliffe says "no" to UT, will remain at Duke

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Football coach David Cutcliffe is staying at
Duke.
Amid reports that he was a candidate for the opening at
Tennessee, Cutcliffe said Friday he would remain with the Blue
Devils because "Duke is the place for our family."
Because of his connections to the Southeastern Conference and
the Volunteers' program, Cutcliffe was considered one of the
obvious choices to replace Lane Kiffin, who left earlier this week
for Southern California.
Cutcliffe was on Tennessee's staff from 1982-1998 and from
2006-07.
In a statement issued through the school, Cutcliffe acknowledged
his ties to Tennessee but said Duke is where he wants to coach.
He is 9-15 in two seasons at Duke, which won a combined eight
games in the five years before he arrived.
