Petrino or Butch Davis. Proven winners we should(although nothing would surprise me) be able to get at a good price.
After today I don't know much, but if Dave Hart called Butch right now he'd start driving to Knoxville. Probably Petrino too but definitely Butch.
If we hire Petrino I'm out, and I'm an alum. I swear to God if we are that desperate I'm done with the whole thing. That guy is beneath us.
He was beneath before the coaching search started. Now we have become the laughing stock of college football... we need anything we can get before we start looking at the Sunbelt conference for coaches... and yes, the past week has gotten me this discouraged.
So exactly who is it you want to hire? Give me your short list. Petrino is not my first choice but he is a proven winner. I watch Tennessee football to see them win not to worry about the coaches personal life. I'd even be fine with bringing fulmer back but its time to get a damn coach in here that can win and stop going after over priced in proven guys. Tennessee football needs to win or risk more years of mediocrity and over paying some guy to lose.
Slowly so you can understand:
I would re-hire Doolander before I hired Petrino.
I would be fine with Fulmer as long as he brought Chief back and kept Chaney.
Maybe Paul Rhoads, even if he has a losing record. ISU is a pit.
Chad Morris. Maybe some NFL coordinators.
Honestly we're in a crappy situation now. Because Hart wanted to go on this wild goose chase with Gundy most of the good mid-major guys have changed jobs. Doeren is at NC State. Hazell went to Purdue. Gotta remember Fedora and Sumlin are just one year removed from that level, but we waited too long and lost our shot at those guys. I would have been completely satisfied with Dave Doeren.
HIRE BUTCH DAVIS TONIGHT. HE CAN START TOMORROW. THEN FIRE CHEEK.
I'm not quite sure I follow =[
Didn't Butch Davis beat Dooley and Butch Jones lose to Dooley? Ummm anymore questions between those two? And remember the early 2000s Miami teams? Butch Davis created that.
