The Volunteers could be making some big assistant coach hires.

Jeremy Pruitt's assistant coaching staff at Tennessee is expected to be a very well-paid one.

Some big names have been mentioned as possibilities for the Vols - former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has been floated for offensive coordinator - and the Knoxville program is reportedly ready to break the bank for some of these guys.

Tennessee insider John Brice reports that the Vols are going to have a "record" salary pool for Pruitt's staff.

Getting a top-notch offensive coordinator on the defensive-minded Pruitt's staff should be a major priority. It looks like the Vols are prepared to do that.
