Washington State football coach Mike Leach has met with Tennessee regarding the school's head-coaching vacancy, a source confirmed to ESPN's Edward Aschoff.

The meeting took place with Tennessee athletic director John Currie in Los Angeles on Thursday, a source told The Associated Press.

The source spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because neither side intended to make the meeting public. Leach was scheduled to fly back to Pullman, Washington, later Thursday, and Currie was expected to land in Knoxville on Friday morning.

The Vols and Leach have not negotiated, and a deal between the two is not imminent, a source told ESPN.

When Leach surfaced as a potential candidate elsewhere last week, WSU president Kirk Schulz met with athletic department officials and decided that if Leach were to leave, they would make defensive coordinator Alex Grinch the primary target to replace him, sources told ESPN's Kyle Bonagura.
