I think Gruden coaches again at some point. But, it’ll be in the NFL.

NFL seems to be going the way of ESPN.

Not good at Math?

Hoke 11-2 8-5 7-6

Harbaugh 10-3 10-3 currently 6-2

Both also started 25 - 8, so take your pick, the math is just fine

If Petrino goes to Tenner or Florida, we are screwed. He will break it off in us.

I hope they do hire him.  A school who's star has faded faster than a brett smith post route, and who has to maintain one of the nation's largest recruiting budget just to have the candy-assed kids cheered on by a bunch of inbred orange popsicles.  It's a match made in heaven.

It means a coach with a long layoff can still have success. Which your post seemed to imply couldn’t happen

Again...I never said that. Stop assuming and stop comparing apples to oranges(NFL vs College)

I hope Tenn is stupid enough to pay a coach $10 mil. That would be stupid for a coach that hasn't coached College.

I'm probably in the minority but i see Tenn and Florida looking for coaches as a good thing. Both are in the East, both are down but could eventually level out the SEC like Georgia is doing to Bama.

Georgia looks like the most close to replicate a Bama ive seen.

They can try to get Gary Patterson, but they probably won't get him.

It has been rumored that Patterson has been promised a mineral right to a shale if he stays at TCU.  It is rumored that the mineral right is worth $20 million.

If true, really no other school can compete with a one-time payout of $20 million.



It actually could be more than that. The Gary Patterson Foundation could be worth more than that, with him and his wife's family controlling it. Patterson will die in Fort Worth ala Frank Broyles.

We don’t play them enough for it to matter near that much. Also BP hasnt really been breaking it off in anyone in the ACC. He needs to use his genius more.

I was merely stating that he won a Super Bowl with a team Tony Dungy had built. After that, he didn't have nearly as much success. He hasn't coached in nearly a decade. He has never had to recruit to the level he would have to now.
He's popular because he is charismatic on TV and is very knowledgeable of the game. But that it is a whole different ball game than being a head coach in the SEC. I just don't believe he is the savior that many seem to think.

To be fair the team he played in the Super Bowl was the team he was at the year before. He had a hand in building that team that won the AFC.  You may be right and he wouldn't be a good college coach, we may never really know, but I don't think you can cheapen his Super Bowl win.

WTH is the fascination with Gruden? He has not coached a game, anywhere, in 8 seasons, and has not held a job in college in more than 2 decades.

TN is tired of losing. they will spend whatever  it takes to get a Big time coach and win.some schools still care about winning.

Umm, Brohm is not a big time coach. Gruden has not coached ANYWHERE in 8 years and has not held a college job in over 20. Patterson is not leaving FW, and BP, yep tearing it up in the ACC, lol.  From the report you quoted, TN is not even looking at the best college coach in the state of TN.

  • Guessing is easier than actually trying!

He won a SB and had .500 career as a HC in the NFL. His coaching kicks the crap out of Saban, Petrino and Pete Carrol (first round) in the NFL.

Recruit would line up for him. The watch him on Monday night football and his QB draft show.

It’s a similar affect to a TV helping make someone President

The last TV guy we hired as a head coach didn't quite work out so well.

It's hard to imagine Gruden taking any coaching job when he can make millions for basically just sitting on a stool in front of a camera.

Apparently Gruden is the frontrunner to getting the Tennessee job per Vegas odds....

Gruden - +175
Chip Kelly - +450
Jeff Brohm - +600
Bobby P - +600

For reference they got Peyton Manning at +10,000

Well remember Vegas will bet on anything or anyone as long as someone's foolish enough to lay down the cash.

$100
all bets you see are based off a $100 wager, so betting $100 on Manning would get you $10,000. So, divide $10,000/$100=$100. So, $1x$100=$100. If you bet $10x$100=$1000. Hope that helps!

Why would any program want a guy that hasn't coached in a decade has almost no college coaching experience and has almost no experience at the college level with recruiting.  Oh yeah because he won a Super Bowl that was handed to him by the former staff.

Mike Norvell. We won’t be able to get top 10 recruiting classes and go 8-5. If Gus averages 8 wins with top 10 talent what makes you think he’d average 7 wins here, he won’t. Gus is where he belongs. Norvell is only 36, just recruited the highest class ever @ Memphis, and we’re moving forward. Norvell doesn’t have the baggage.

Apparently because he beat Georgia and had some miracle finishes in his first season at Auburn.  I've been told he isn't mediocre because of those two things.   ::)
