    I don't think those other 4 coaches would want to be at UT either.

    Why any established coach would take this job is beyond me. It has become a dumpster fire. Schiano would have been a very good, though not sexy, hire for the Vols.

    What about Mark Elder at EKU? Wasn't he an assistant at Tennessee before taking the EKU job?

    Did UT contact Frost and he turned them down or did they not contact him? I don't recall seeing and was curious.

    They could put it out there for the twitter mob to decide, since they decided the fate of Schiano.

    What is Bill Polian's quote? "If you listen to the fans you will soon be sitting with them."

    Elder hasn’t impressed me at EKU.

    I think Frost is pretty well set up to go to Nebraska where he played.

    Since I like UK and not UT, I'm enjoying this dumpster fire!!!

    I'm glad they didn't get Schiano as he would have done a Great job as he's better then their last 3 coaches combined! I guess UT now has to get the fans permission, the state legislatures permission, the governors permission and everybody elses before they can hire him. What a joke!!!

    So now they can pick a recently fired coach or a coach with no experience that will get eaten alive in the SEC. I hope they don't pick Brohm... no not with this track record.

    Great comedy Vols... appreciate it... keep it coming...

    I get that Frost will likely end up at Nebraska but was just curious if UT even gauged his interest.

    as far as Schiano goes, I will have to disagree. I don't think he would have been a great hire. IMO there's a reason he isn't a head coach now and not really ever brought up for the bigger jobs.

    What about Mike Leach? Is he too "out there" to be the Vols coach? Have to think the UT job is (ultimately) better than Wash. State.
