Back to plan A? Call Gruden and see if, seriously this time, you guys, he wants to coach the Vols?
At this point Gruden would look like he was taking Gundy, Strong, Fedora, et al.'s sloppy seconds. Petrino or Fulmer, I'm guessing. I hope not Petrino.

They are going to have to find someone who is dying to get of their current situation. Calling Al Golden!

I still think Butch Davis would be a good hire for UT. Of course, he would probably turn them down too.

If he signs an absurd contract with UofL yes it will be a long time before he finds the SEC. It seems money was the deciding factor & truth is he just isn't worth it at this point.

Forgot all about Butch Davis. Now that may be a very realistic possibility at this point.

I don't think he'll fare any better than Dooley, necessarily, but he's a head coach and he is available. I still don't know why he didn't fare any better at UNC while he was there. I mean, he had plenty of talent, and his staff was cheating like crazy. But still, not much success there.

Petrino is waiting by the phone like a fat girl the night before the prom. Is the next call to Golden? Who else wants out bad???

Anyone get the feeling that Slive has put the cuffs on anyone in the conference hiring Petrino this year?? I do!

You top this coaching search off with Summit getting pushed out and the lawsuit against him from a former employeee and his backside is going to be smoking if he does not get a very good coach. If I am a UT booster I am beyond pissed right now.

From what I've seen, I think he's a pretty good guy, a good recruiter, and a good coach.
He is tired of playing in the little leagues. When he came to FSU it was to eventually take over a big-time program that commanded respect. After serving his time as an underling he kinda ended up jobbed. B Bowden didn't turn it over to him until all the respect was gone and the conference they play in was junked.

I feel like UT might reach in to the NFL for the next hire. All the good college coaches are taken except for Petrino. But they've already gone the hiring a D-bag route (Kiffin).

????? If its true UofL offered 4.5 over 5 years we would have been dumb to throw more at him. That's common sense.

Read on FB that Strong got $4.5 million per year from Lousiville. Anyone heard that?

Maybe they can just turn this into a marketing opportunity and have a new guest coach every week. Week 1 is Ditka, week 2 Lou Holtz, maybe you're down to Bobby Bowden by week 12, but hey it's all good fun. Or just skip the coach all together and let the fan call plays via Twitter?

Kirby Smart or Jon Chavis maybe for UT now? I think they would make a bigger splash than anyone I've heard that is left after Strong. Does Fedora or Butch Jones really move the meter any more than those guys. Throw an absurd amount at Patterson or Peterson maybe? This is becoming quite comical for the second time for the UT coaching searches,

I have an idea. Why don't they make the Viles coaching position a reality show next year. The can have different celebrities coach the team for a week and film the whole process. Then, at the end of the season, the viewers can vote to determine who gets the job for 2014. Assistant coaches can be voted off every week too and replaced with new contestants to comprise the 2014 staff under the new HC. I would watch it.
