Lane Kiffin Address Tennessee Coaching Rumors

He finally talked about the Tennessee gig.

Tennessee fired former head coach Butch Jones earlier this season, and finding a replacement is serving to be more difficult than many would have expected.

The Vols were set to hire Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano before the fanbase rioted, creating a toxic environment in which Tennessee AD John Currie decided to move on from Schiano.

After so much turmoil, who will take the job?

Former Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin has been a popular name out there, but on Wednesday morning he dispelled some of those rumors.

Kiffin hasn't been contacted, yet.

Tennessee is reportedly interested in Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm, SMU head coach Chad Morris, and Washington State head coach Mike Leach to name a few.

Could Kiffin find himself back at Tennessee?
