Derek Dooley was just the coach of Tennessee. We couldn't sniff a 5 star recruit. We couldn't get aligned every game. We were out coached every game.
Now we are looking at coaches like Golden, Fisher, Fedora, and Strong...
I mean that is exciting stuff IMO. They are all young energetic coaches who have won, can recruit, and can coach, I was just such a non believer in Dooley I feel no matter who comes in will be an improvement, and a big one.
I'm excited to recruit at a high level. I'm excited to not have the in-state prospects immediately dismiss us. It's fun waking up in the morning, checking the board and seeing new information, all the time. I'm enjoying this, the endless possibilities is entertaining to me. Gruden would've been awesome, but I am intrigued by the others. All have strengths.
Fedora- My least favorite but he has recruited well at UNC, won big at S. Miss, and was highly thought of by Jeremy Foley. Good enough for me sign him up.
Strong- Florida connections. Defensive Coach. Screams Toughness. IMO the highest Upside, but least proven
Fisher- Recruit Recruit Recruit.. Guy get's it done and would build a great staff.
Golden- My Man Crush, doesn't get any respect from 90% of the board but that's okay, Miami posters have come on here and have vauged for him. They see the big picture. They believe in him and so would I.
We can't go wrong. That's my theory. All 4 could and I think would win here. Exciting times. Go Vols...
P.S. My #1 choice is Butch Davis.
Agree with u Drizz. Butch is a helluva coach, my number 1 would be strong but any of the guys u mentioned would get it done here, but this fan base is being ridiculous with all this Gruden or bust bs.
Formally known as govols011 - follow me on twitter @C_Dillard6
My number 1 is Ken Sparks Carson-Newman College
2nd is The Mount Union HC Division 3
Just Kidding guys if not Gruden then I would have to go with Fisher if not him then Fedora
Drizz, agree with your point of all would be UPGRADES, good stuff. My#1 is fedora. I think he is gonna be something to talk about at a big time school. +1

Butch Davis or Fedora (prefer Davis)
Honestly guys, I'm really interested in Greg Roman. I think that guy is the next big thing. Its a risk though, I know. I'd really just prefer to get someone out of the NFL.
Drizz is spot on.....
