    Tennessee coaching search

    So now with Tennessee backing out on Greg Schiano and Duke head coach, David Cutfliff telling Tennessee he's staying at Duke. Matt Campbell just signed an extension to stay at Iowa State, where do the Vols turn too next?

    According to football scoop, Jimmy Haynes is reporting that Tennessee has met with Mike Grundy of Oklahoma State, who is well known for his "Rants". Grundy turned Tennessee down back in 2012.

    Also, Grundy just signed a contract extension with OSU last year that will pay him 4.45MIL annually and rolls over in perpetuity.

    Is Tennessee setting itself up for more disappointment? - FootballScoop


    So who does Tennessee land?

    Would he even take it?

    Brady Hoke may be their only option.

    There was speculation that he would be the AD if they fired the current one.

    Maybe not, it deff seems like a job no one wants right now.

    but what about some of the recent names who were fired?
    Bielema?
    McElwain?
    Graham?
    Sumlin?

    I don't think either party would be interested.

    I would think Tennessee is in desperate mode. Most of those coaches had winning record at their last sint. McElwain won the SEC east both of his first two years.

    The only hire that would satisfy Vols fans would be Jon Gruden and that's not happening. What has Mike Gundy done at OK State other than underachieve? This is the SEC, not the Big XII. "The Mullet" would fail to get it done in Knoxville as well. After the debacle over the weekend, the Vols would be best served to hire an up and coming head coach of a Group of Five team, although I can't think of a worthy candidate off the top of my head. Guys like Hoke, Sumlin, Graham and McElwain didn't really set the world on fire with their records at major programs so I'd avoid that if I were AD Currie. The guy already has shown questionable decision making skills so the next coach will probably be Rick Pitino.

    Neil Brown would have been my first choice after Mullen took the UF job. I would really like to have him at Kentucky.
