  • Reports: Mike Leach offered University of Tennessee head coach position

At Kansas State, Currie benefited from the stability of having longtime football coach Bill Snyder around since his first year on the job.

"McMurphy also reported that: "(Former Tennessee coach) Phillip Fulmer has been sabotaging search process in hopes to become Tennessee's AD".

Jimbo Fisher is leaving Florida State University to take over as the head football coach at Texas A&M, according to multiple reports. Currie met Thursday with Washington State coach Mike Leach.

A to Z Sports, a blog based in Nashville, Tenn., reported that Leach met Tennessee athletic director John Currie for lunch in Los Angeles on, a meeting that Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports said "went very well". That deal fell through amid a public backlash.

Tennessee fired former coach Butch Jones on November 12 and the Volunteers reportedly offered the job to Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, but then backed out of the deal due to backlash from Tennessee boosters and fans.

Testimony released in 2016 brought up Schiano's name in the Sandusky trial.

He said he "has been charged with finding the right coach for this circumstance: head coach, assistant coach, coordinator". He also has a coaching record of 122-88. He started his quest by hiring mediocre lunatic Greg Schiano, a decision he quickly reversed after realizing he'd alienated seemingly his entire fanbase. At a huge rock on campus where students often paint various messages, the words "Schiano covered up child rape at Penn State" appeared. In addition, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy and NC State coach Dave Doeren were among many coaches to turn down the job. The Volunteers then lost their final two games to finish 4-8 overall and 0-8 in the conference.
