    Default UT Coaching search

    This has turned into national news. Schiano probably wasn't a great fit for UT, but that had nothing to do with Penn State and Sandusky. The Vols fans that focused on that are nuts.

    Gundy turned them down, despite a ton of money thrown his way, but that wasn't surprising at all. Vandy threw a ton of money at James Franklin, but when a coach wants to be at a particular school, money really doesn't matter.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they have to settle for Tee Martin in the end. I think having a UT person running the UT program would help out a out, but is it worth it to hire a guy with only 2 years of OC experience and no head coaching experience?

    The only reason to fire a coach before the season ends is to get an early jump at the candidates, but that has not worked out at all for the Vols. It is going to be tough to hire any established coach at this point.

    Jeff Brohm is supposedly being courted now. He just finished his first season at Purdue after coaching three years at Western Kentucky.

    I could see him being a good fit for the Vols. He was able to turn around a 3-9 Purdue team to 6-6 this year, and he was 30-10 at WKU.

    What a train wreck!

    So much entertainment though.

    Currie has been fired from UT, apparently for trying to hire Mike Leach. Rumors are that Fulmer may get the AD job.

    This is just nuts now.

    Well, the fans are happy for today since Phil has the job, but no idea who the coach will be. Currie was about to sign Mike Leach-the press conferences would have been awesome (and he's a good coach).

    Mickey on the 3HL said that the UT situation is the college football equivalent of a flaming bag of dog$hit!

    Phil Fulmer has gone full Frank Underwood.

    I haven’t seen a coach sabotage his school this hard since Lloyd Carr in 2007.
