Tennessee Football 2017 Football Head Coaching Search
« on: November 12, 2017, 04:16:55 pm »

Tennessee fired head football coach Butch Jones on Sunday, a day after a 50-17 loss to Missouri dropped the Volunteers to 0-6 in SEC play this season

Brady Hoke has been installed as interim coach, but who might the Volunteers pursue to be Jonesí permanent replacement?

Tennessee has issues in terms of recruiting base, but still has plenty of tradition, a willingness to spend money on coaches and a fan base starved for a winner

Here are coaches who could be on the Volunteersí list:


Quote
Jon Gruden, TV analyst/former NFL coach
Gruden has been the dream candidate in Knoxville for years, primarily because he has ties to Tennessee as a former graduate assistant coach, the husband of a former Vols cheerleader and the father of a current UT student. And heís still only 53. But Grudenís been out of coaching for nine years and makes $6 million per year on Monday Night Football, so would he really give up his current lifestyle to return to the sideline?
