Tennessee Coaching Hot Board

1. Jon Gruden
2. Charlie Strong
3. Gary Patterson
4. Butch Davis
5. Jim Tressel

From what I understand, this is the order of preference. Confirmed that Tennessee has contacted the first 4 through intermediaries.

I don't get why Jim Leavitt's name isn't showing up more for the bigger jobs out there.... dude's resume is 2nd to none (with the possible exception of Petrino, but he's not a realistic option for most programs).

He's got some baggage, but USF settle with him which suggests he was let go w/o just cause.

Butch Davis will have you on NCAA probation in 3 years or less.

Is Tressel still under show cause? If not he would be a no brainier. Dude can recruit and coach.

Tressel would have to serve a 5 games suspension if he was hired.

Um...is this after his 5 Year Show-Cause Penalty ends?

Show cause does not prevent a coach from being hired.

The real question is would he wear a orange sweater vest in combo with the pants..

I seriously doubt it will be Tressel. It will likely be one of the first four.

Right. But do you really want to run the risk of getting hit with NCAA Penalties for hiring him?

Agreed. After Pearl's issues and then the Kiffin debacle I don't see UT going after him. I think they want someone with a squeaky clean image in regards to the NCAA.

Strong/Patterson are the 2 most likely candidates imo.

Not only the 5 games suspension, but the NCAA will have clause to look at the athletic program as a whole.

Tressel is a great coach, not worth the trouble to have Indy snooping around.

I think Patterson is the best choice on the list, albeit he's going to Hog country from what i've heard. Gonna be a big pickup for where ever he goes

We're both going after the same guys. I imagine there might a bidding war between us at some point. Even more likely when Auburn jumps into the fold as well.
