Here are two names to keep an eye on for the Tennessee job.

Tennessee's head coaching search is pretty much starting over with the firing of former AD John Currie and the hiring of legendary coach Phillip Fulmer.

Who will the Vols be looking at now?

Fulmer said that there are coaches who are now interested in Tennessee that weren't before due to the previous administration.

College football insider Bruce Feldman says that two names to keep an eye on are SMU's Chad Morris and Clemson coordinator Brent Venables.

Morris has been mentioned for several Power 5 openings over the last year or so, while Venables seems primed for a head coaching opportunity.

Stay tuned.
