Tennessee’s search for a new head coach is a national joke at this point to anyone who’s not emotionally invested in the Volunteers. To that point, someone turned the famous Cleveland Browns quarterback jersey into one that represents Tennessee’s recent debacle.

Tennessee ultimately fired athletic director John Currie on Friday morning after he tried to hire Washington State’s Mike Leach. Currie had only been on the job for eight months before getting the boot. Earlier in the week it was reported that some big-money donors wanted him gone for the embarrassment he caused the school after the Greg Schiano hire fell through due to protests.
At this point it’s anyone’s guess who will be tasked with putting this epic dumpster fire out. At least some of us can laugh about the comedy of errors that has transpired the past few months.
