Tennessee Fans in Uproar Over Reports School Is Hiring Greg Schiano

The Volunteers fired Butch Jones on November 12, the day after they lost 50-17 at Missouri to fall to 0-6 in Southeastern Conference play.

It now appears that's coming to a culmination.

Schiano spent the last two seasons a defensive coordinator at Ohio State, uniting with his old friend Urban Meyer. He went 34-27 in his five seasons with the Vols. It's the program's sixth losing campaign since 2008.

The Tennessee Volunteers have reportedly finalized a deal that would put Ohio State Buckeyes defensive coordinator Greg Schiano as the new head coach. Schiano finished with a 68-67 record at Rutgers, but that run included two seasons with appearances in the top 10 and six bowl games in his final seven years. Respected throughout the coaching industry, Schiano at Tennessee is presented with a great chance to recapture that college success of a decade ago.

This hire likely won't do much to inspire a fan base in Knoxville that has not had a lot to cheer about recently.

Nothing has been made official yet as fans wait to see if the Volunteers will hire Schiano, but at least one analyst believes the hiring would be a good move.
