Rumor: Gregg Marshall Possible Tennessee Target
 
So, it's in the rumor stages right now. But, it looks like Marquette is going hard after Cuonzo Martin, and Tennessee looks like they won't match the offer. If Martin does go to Marquette, it's circulating around that Gregg Marshall would be a top target to be HC at Tennessee.

How would you all feel about that? I know he was the guy most wanted when we hired Darrin Horn AND when we hired Frank Martin.

Random sports site with tweet and what not "rumorizing" Gregg Marshall

Oh jeez...as if it's not bad enough listening to folks whine with him coaching in the MVC, can you imagine if he were in the SEC????

If they arent shelling out the bucks for Martin, are they going to shell it out for MArshall? Maybe a stupid question, but I remember seeing somewhere where they were like hundreds of millions of dollars in debt...I believe the highest of any college

Tennessee passed him over once already. I know he really, really wanted the UT job when they hired Buzz Peterson. Don't know if that will come into play or not for Marshall if UT does offer him the job. I think it will take at least $2.5M for any school to lure Marshall away from Wichita State. It'll be interesting to see if UT wants to pony up that kind of dough.

What could Marshall do at a football school?

I think Cuonzo is just looking for leverage. He was on hotseat last year I'd bet he just wants his contract padded for assurance.

Werent there like 50 signature from booster members voting for firing him, and then he ended up leading Tenn to an awesome tourney and theyre kinda biting their tongues a little bit. Help me get my facts straight people

i think that was prior to pearl getting the new job.

must've stunk for martin to have the ex-coach that everybody wants back hanging around town. pearls approval rating is something like 98% in knoxville.

Makes sense.

My biggest hope is that Pearl hires Vince Alexander as his ass coach. Alexander has done a HELL of a job here at USCA and he deserves his shot

Marshall has no desire to leave Wichita St. Carolina was his dream job, but once he went to Wichita State, all that changed. He doesn't have to compete with football, so basketball is king. He is absolutely happy there. Obviously, money talks, but it will take several million a year to lure him away.

Not whining but can you honestly tell me there is any doubt in your mind that he would have been better than keeping Odom that last year or hiring Horn? The jury is still out on Martin so I don't even bother comparing hiring Martin over Marshall.

Martin has taken his name out of consideration for the Marquette job.

It's still whining.

Complaining when there's not a damn thing that can be done to correct whatever it is you're complaining about is most definitely whining.

EXACTLY!!!!

I can be tired of the incessant whining regardless of how I feel about him as a coach.

Many up here want Martin gone. I can't say I blame them. Dude may turn out to be a good coach, though.

There was literally 36,000+ signatures on a petition in mid Feb to have Bruce replace him.

We have the dumbest fanbase in the history of mankind.
