    the accusation against Pruitt is interesting- how it affects who the next vollie coach will be is also interesting- would not surprise me if Steel is their settle for coach-he is not a good HC so it will be the same 3-4 years from now

    From a UT admin interview I saw yesterday on YouTube, it seemed like the NCAA came after them for level 1 and level 2 infractions. I could be wrong though.

    Just wanna make sure I’ve got this correct here...they hire a dc , following week they fire the hc along with 9 assistants and the ad to boot. That’s what we’re going with here ut. Hmm

    Well, he knows how to make Vandy lose. That has been a problem for Tennessee recently.
    Vandy won 5 of last 9

    Step one. Reclaim the state from Vandy. Check :D

    If they are smart they hire Joe Brady.
    I hope they don't.

    Honestly seems that Pruitt could use that against them in a case.
    How can they claim cause for NCAA violations and pending sanctions and then hire a guy with NCAA violation and sanctions in his suitcase?
    Freeze would be a great hire, but they are probably not able to pull that trigger.

    He could probably make them respectable by year 2

    Agree, but his name was mentioned for some of the NFL openings (not sure how seriously). I think he can do much better than Tennessee

    I'm sure any coaching candidates will be able to see the UT knife still sticking out of the prior UT coach's back. Question is: How desperate are you to be a HC?

    All kidding aside, it might be a good landing spot for Muschamp if expectations for the near future are way down, and his hire can be about cleaning up the program. Potential sanctions and loss of recruits/players should allow him some time to work with. Give him 4-5 years to show them what he can do.

    They aren't getting anyone of that quality, not with the dumpster fire state of their program, the lack of a natural recruiting ground and the looming NCAA sanctions. They had to reach to get Jeremy Pruitt when they didn't have the latter hanging over their heads, so you can put 2 and 2 together to figure out what level of candidate they are going to attract this go around.

    Someone along the lines of Kevin Steele is probably about a high a bar as they can hit.
