I would love to see TN hire Leach. That is about the only thing that could make this ridiculous off season even more crazy.
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Even with Leach they are going to be in a tough spot for a few years at least.
I'm sure they'll at least try to coax Chucky out of the MNF booth.
i honestly think leach would be good at TN, sec defenses have not impressed me lately when they have faced a spread aerial attack
I think this would be a perfect scenario for both parties. TN has the ability to pay Leach his desired salary and Leach would thrive recruiting in state even after the PR blow.
that they have electrical sheds in the SEC. "He's in".
Some fellow named Fulmer keeps popping up in these recent coaching searches, maybe they should take a look at him.
I thought the same thing about Fulmer. It would certainly be interesting if they went after him...
Leach would just be too perfect for this whole situation. On second thought, everything is going perfectly to ensure mass hysteria so of course it will happen.
Unlike some other schools, we'll never have to worry about Rich Rod leaving once he gets Michigan turned around. No one will be willing to endure the initial transition after seeing Michigan's struggles.
I recommend any of the following:
I'm guessing Rex Ryan is not available.
I'm cracking up! it would be a tragedy if this joke went unnoticed.
Thankfully nobody in our staff has ties to TN.
Kippy Brown is apparently going to be their interim HC. Malzahn, Cutcliffe, or Calhoun would be good hires in addition to Leach.
Boy, talk about an exciting start to the decade.
with Buddy Ryan as his DC. That way when things go wrong there, Ryan can slug Leavitt.
Then it could be like the old days ...
available name right now.
Tennessee is a big time job, but I don't see them getting anyone better than Leach.
I think Tuberville would have been a nice fit with his experience in the SEC, but obviously that ship has sailed.
Maybe they will go after Nutt or Petrino?
I'm guessing they are shocked by Kiffin leaving, I know I was.
Yeah, I bet Tuberville is kicking himself right about now.
all of the African American candidates are getting a fair look with all of these openings. Its like a carousel of scum bags.
Calhoun from Air Force was runner up last year for the job. I don't see Petrino, didn't he just do a similar thing to the Falcons? Not sure they would pursue someone who has done the same thing. I would be excited to see Muschamp, but not sure they want to fork out the money for him.
David Cutcliffe would make sense. He was successful at Mississippi, he's improving Duke (which says a lot) and Tennessee's offense was well under him. Granted, most of his success has come with Manning's at QB, but hey, why penalize him for that.
Bobby Johnson of Vanderbilt - he already knows the state well, he has made Vanderbilt somewhat relevant. Imagine what he could do at a school without the challenges of a small private school.
Kevin Sumlin of Houston continues to pop up in everyone's candidacy list, so why not. He's done fine with Houston.
And let's not forget Butch Davis at UNC. Football will always be second to basketball there, and he did have a ton of success rebuilding Miami after the NCAA sanctions in the mid 1990s.
Outside the box - Ken Niumatalolo. It's working for GT so far.
According the Rivals Main Recruiting Board.

He is described as "an extreme" recruiter
It would take $400,000 at least cause he used to be sabans lb coach just last year. TN gave him more $ and thats why he left. I dont see Michigan throwing a guy like him more money than both the coordinators.
Houston Nutt would be an awesome failure, but this time he wouldn't inherit the players to make him look good in the first year.
