Could Tennessee take a year off for its coaching search?
Tennessee has bungled its coaching search over the past few weeks, costing itself a great deal of money in the process. One former national title winning coach wonders if the whole thing could lead to the school delaying its decision - a full year.
Gene Chizik, who coached Auburn to its most recent national title, wonders if Phillip Fulmer, as AD, could decide to just let interim head coach Brady Hoke take the reins for a year while the program improves its financial situation.
At the moment, Tennessee owes big buyout numbers to both Butch Jones and John Currie. That doesn't even factor in Greg Schiano - who Tennessee might owe money to as well.
It's a bit farfetched, and Tennessee fans would freak out again, but hey, you never know.
