The Vols have received word only a number of conspiracy theorists believe isnt true that Gruden is most likely signing with the Eagles. Many think that Strong is re-signing. Golden is apparently #3 for them and then they may go after Butch Jones of Cincinnati. Of course rumors are flying because the yocals are going nuts.
They either dont want to miss if they should or think Golden is elite because apparently its going to be an offer above 3/yr (like 3.2)

Would be a great hire for UT.
I agree. I said it on here during the year, in a vacuum he's better than Jimbo IMO.
Didnt Butch take Purdue?
Golden wasn't aware of sanctions at that point I wouldn't believe.
The Tennessee job back then was what Miami is now.
Tennessee has talent. They just didn't play hard for an average coach. They need upgrades in the secondary somehow but their offense will still be sick next year.
They return 6 seniors on the DL as well. Golden could keep OC Jim Chaney and most of the offensive staff and just overhaul the defense. He'd leave D'Onofrio in Miami though.

Golden is going nowhere, dickwado... Fsu fans get dummur bye thu dey.
So who's the new DC at FSU, Odell??? LMAO!!! Good luck competing against FIU and Central Florida....
Not at all impressed with Golden

Honestly I could see why Tennessee would be appealing great facilities a roster with sufficient talent, and a pay raise as well as a chance to compete in the Sec, but then again we have a lot of returning talent on offense as well and compete in conference which is much easier to win I also believe Recruiting Miami is much easier than recruiting Tennessee don't think he will leave but you never know.

Don't be nervous dude... No ocean and no city. Momma not hearin that. He's an east coast guy and drawing him out would take more than that...
This^^ Good analysis. I personally don't wish any ill harm to the Canes in all of this. Ya'll have been through enough. Golden is a hell of a football coach.
Butch Jones. Who???
Haha yeah that is why he is 0-2 against Jimbo.
Yup I agree I would say the only reason Al Golden is still at Miami is one recruiting oppurtunitites, two the young players currently on the roster, and three loyalty. No matter how loyal Al seems you never really know with coaches hopefully he stays I believe he will seems like he really loves it here.
Judge him when the talent level on the two teams is comparable.
Last 2 yrs you have beaten Miami's two worst teams since the early 70's, gongratz

Since we're on the topic of Tennessee football coach, The Times Free Press launched an article not too long ago saying that Gruden has offered a counter offer to Tennessee. Only hang up with them being staff options. TIFWIW. Patrick Brown was the reporter.
It has since been taken down, but twitter and our home board are still buzzing about it.

Don't know why but I think Strong ends up at Tenn

Here it is.
The decision about the new University of Tennessee football coach is in the hands of the man most Volunteers fans seem to want.
I think everyone thought the talks were over because he was asking for too much (more than what Saban makes this coming year). Who knows at this point, it has been insane.
I heard that the owner of the Browns was offering him a piece of the Browns to become the HC at UT. Sounded odd to me because you would think that Haslem would want him as coach at the Browns, but that was what was being reported.
I guess it would be tough to give a coach that works for you a piece of the pie, but not so much if he's coaching at your alma mater.

Yeah, that whole story was out there. It is very hard to make fact of fiction lately. I just know that there has been smoke around for awhile, and it finally looks like there is fire.
Gruden would be AWESOME in college football IYAM. I certainly don't want to see it happen. Tennessee would automatically have top five recruiting classes without even having to work for it.
I think he could definitely recruit the talent. His name alone would be enough to get some good skill position players to come in on this class. If he couldn't hire a staff to make up for his inefficiencies in the college game, then I would have a hard time understanding how he managed to win a Super Bowl, regardless of the players.
I just want to win again, dammit
