Boosters want Kirby, Hart wants Butch


quote:

As we reported earlier today, Cincinnati’s Butch Jones is the clear front-runner right now in Tennessee's football coaching search.

Jones remains in front despite a late – and very strong — push tonight from some influential UT boosters who believe that Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart is a better choice for the Volunteers because of his ties to the Deep South and his recruiting ability.

At this hour, we can’t confirm that Jones has an offer to be Tennessee’s next head football coach, but he is at the very least —and without question — the leading candidate for the job.

In fact, we think it would be a surprise if Jones isn't named UT’s coach in the next 24 hours.

Ruh Roh........if Jones is hired and the ship continues to go south, Harts arse is grass it seems. Why don't the big money folks make more of a push to run Hart out?

According to Rucker, we hired Troy Calhoun last time. He's a fricking idiot.

Yeah, I'd probably trust the ones that were saying you were getting Gruden. Those sound like top notch sources.

I don't like either, but I'd take Smart over Butch, even though I tend to prefer guys with HC experience.

Butch Jones has walked into programs that were already built, and I don't like his offense very much.

I'd prefer the defensive minded guy.

The only redeeming thing about this is the fact that it is coming from Rucker. He has been the biggest inept bafoon of the Knoxville media in this entire search, and that is saying a lot.

We're choosing between a Big East Coach that lost to Dooley and Alabama's DC....we're fricked.

I would go with Smart. He is a risk but what is there to lose at this point.

Calling out you Voltards. I thought the Vols got Gruden and his pal Grider and Manning helped set it up? Fantasyland, what's it like? EABOD Vols. This is fantastic. You're dreaming of the 98 Vols when you have a East Carolina reality. DWI. Its your destiny.

Wasn't Smart "Hart's guy"? This doesn't sound believable at all.

I bet this is a smokescreen to make the Butch Jones hiring look better to Vol fans. As unhappy as they are about Jones, it pales in comparison to how angry they would feel about Kirby Smart being hired.

There is no situation where either would be remotely acceptable to the fan base. And there is no way Hart would survive either (and I find it unlikely he survives, regardless of who is hired).

Maybe Dave Hart knows Smart better than the boosters. Basically that he is not yet ready to be a head coach

Based on how this search has gone I would say it means kirby is the next lombardi.
