(KLTV) - Gilmer head coach Jeff Traylor interviewed for the tight ends/special teams coaching job at the University of Texas on Tuesday. Sources tell KLTV Sports that Traylor has not accepted the position.

Multiple media outlets reported earlier this week that Traylor will accept the position. Initially sources told KLTV Sports that no decision would be made until Wednesday; sources now tell us a decision isn't expected until Friday.

Texas head coach Charlie Strong is expected to make announcement about his coaching staff Friday morning.

Traylor has won three state championships with the Buckeyes, including the 2014 title. In December, Gilmer rallied from a 17-point halftime deficit to defeat West Orange-Stark 35-25 in the 4A Division II title game.

Traylor's son, Jake, will be a senior offensive lineman at Gilmer in 2015.

Gilmer had six football players sign letters of intent to play college football last Wednesday, including defensive back Kris Boyd, who signed to play for the Longhorns this fall.
