The Vols' fan base is once again freaking out about a potential hire.

Tennessee's fan base is losing its mind again about a potential coaching hire.

A couple of days ago, the Volunteers' fan base squashed a reported Greg Schiano hire through a social media fury we've maybe never seen from a college football fan base before.

Now, they're preparing to do it again.

After missing out on Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Duke's David Cutcliffe (and maybe Purdue's Jeff Brohm, too) the search has reportedly turned to N.C. State's Dave Doeren.

Tennessee fans do not like this.

Doeren, 45, entered the 2017 season at N.C. State on a bit of a hot seat. He led the Wolfpack to an 8-4 season and has gone 33-30 over five seasons. The Kansas native previously coached at Northern Illinois, where he went 23-4 over two seasons.
