Tennessee may end up with an actual volunteer.How ironic.

At this point, the Volunteers’ athletic department is going to need some rocket boosters as opposed to simply the deep pockets of die-hard boosters to get a new head coach hired in Knoxville.
If it feels like everyone and their mother has rejected the Vols’ various contract offers, that is because everybody has.
The team’s extremely well-publicized courting of current Monday Night Football announcer Jon Gruden blew up in their faces. Both Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong have decided to stay put at Oklahoma State and Louisville, respectively.
Louisian Tech’s Sonny Dykes is headed out to Cal, Northern Illinois’ Dave Doeren is off to NC State and Kent State’s Darrell Hazell has chosen to take over at Purdue.
None, obviously, deemed Knoxville a good enough fit.

The site is generally used to swap beat up coaches and inappropriate bodily fluids, but Vols fans, are, ummm, desperate.
