Titans, Vols say N.C. State hasn't reached out to Chow, Cutcliffe
Nov. 29, 2006
CBS wire reports

RALEIGH, N.C. -- A pair of assistants rumored to be on North Carolina State's coaching wish list said Wednesday that they have not been contacted by the Wolfpack about replacing the fired Chuck Amato.

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Norm Chow said through a team spokesman that he had not been approached about the job, and University of Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton said nobody has approached him about discussing the vacancy with offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe.

Chow was the Wolfpack's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2000, Amato's first season at his alma mater, but left to join the staff at Southern California.

Cutcliffe, a longtime assistant to Phil Fulmer at Tennessee, was 44-29 in six seasons as coach at Mississippi. He is credited for developing passers Peyton Manning at Tennessee and then his younger brother Eli at Ole Miss, but the Rebels fired him in 2004 for refusing to make staff changes after a 4-7 finish.

N.C. State athletic director Lee Fowler has said he will not comment on the search until it is complete.

Amato was fired Sunday, one day after his team lost its seventh straight game to end the season. The former N.C. State linebacker was 49-37 and led the Wolfpack to five bowl games in seven seasons, but was just 25-31 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and never finished higher than fourth.
