    **Tennessee Coaching Buzz** Cold as Steele in a deep Freeze

    [​IMG]

    It is that time of year again my friends. The Tri-Annual adventure into a UT coaching search. It only took a couple weeks, but in a way that only Tennessee football can, they have managed to make their fanbase miss 2020. Seriously. Only Tennessee football.

    Please keep Pruitt related posts here:
    Ucheat may be looking for a new HC - merged all UT threads here | Page 5 | Swamp Gas Forums

    And use this thread to unmercifully mock our pale orange checkerboard obsessed Vols-In-Tears as they embark on what we can only hope is another entertaining and epic journey.

    So let the speculation begin. Who will be Tennessee's 12th option and new head football coach?

    FTR. The System is still in the shop. ;)

    Dang. I already have to change the thread title. So help me if Tennessee promotes Steele as is being rumored, and deprives us of this joyous search, I hope Mullen hangs Two Fitty on them in the Swamp next year.

    This thread is for search topics only. The other thread is for Pruitt topics.

    Steele is what I'm hearing. Is Fulmer officially gone?

    Most outlets are now reporting this order of events.
    Pruitt received a letter of "intent to terminate".
    Pruitt termination is official at 5pm today.
    Fulmer is retiring.
    A new AD will be hired first.
    A search firm will be hired by the new AD.
    Steele will act as interim, but will be given a chance to interview.

    ..so this may take a while. Buckle up and enjoy!

    Does UT have any dirt on UGa? There was mention of that a while back

    So Tilly - What 'm "getting" is that UT actively sought out a "show clause" to get rid of the Pruitt.

    As others have mentioned, not exactly a great confidence builder for the "Coaching Search".

    If I was UT I would hire Derek Mason.

    No, I'm not kidding.

    I have great respect for coach Mason and think he could do a reasonable job but....that's just me.
