The Tennessee Volunteers made a lot of headlines over the weekend after almost-hiring Ohio State DC Greg Schiano to replace Butch Jones before nixing that agreement under intense public pressure. Now their attention has turned to Mike Gundy, but the Vols have also reached out to NC State’s Dave Doeren, per Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman.
I don’t find this development overly surprising under the circumstances—Doeren has been trending up, after all, and the Vols have missed on several targets already, and you know how it goes the longer down the list a school has to look ...
Feldman’s source suggests that Doeren would be very much interested if UT gets serious, but it doesn’t sound like they’re near that point just yet. First Gundy will have to say no to the Vols, and then perhaps Purdue’s Jeff Brohm would have to do so as well. I guess we’ll see.
Wheeeeeeee the coaching carousel.
