Here is who he advocated hiring.
Steve Spurrier is no stranger to opening his mouth about Tennessee football.
He has trolled the Vols multiple times over the years, including his infamous “You can’t spell Citrus (Bowl) without UT” joke. Spurrier was 8-4 against Tennessee while at Florida and 5-6 against the Vols at South Carolina.
Today, Spurrier commented on Tennessee’s coaching search, vouching for USC offensive coordinator and former Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin.
Steve Spurrier on the Tennessee coaching search on ESPNU Radio: "I think they oughta hire Tee Martin, that would unite the fan base again."

For what it’s worth, Martin does have a special place in Tennessee lore. He led the Vols to an undefeated season and a national title in 1998.
Is he the man to lead the program during a critical juncture in its history? That is another question.
