Report: Greg Schiano emerged as focus of Tennessee coaching search

Now that Tennessee’s failed 2017 football season is officially in the books, the coaching search is kicking into high gear with a new name as the focus — Greg Schiano.

Schiano has been the defensive coordinator at Ohio State the past two seasons. Before that he coached at the NFL level with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after spending a decade at the helm of Rutgers’ program (2001-2011).

While leading the Scarlet Knights, Schiano turned the program around in a big way. He went 12-34 his first four seasons at Rutgers before rattling off winning seasons in six of his last seven campaigns, including an 11-win season in 2006.

Dan Mullen, the other man mentioned by Wolken, seems to either be content to stay at Mississippi State or is a dark horse for the job at Florida, as was mentioned in the report.

I guess this also means Jon Gruden is probably out of the running, boys and girls.
