Schiano to be named Tennessee Vols Head Coach

Former Rutgers coach and current Ohio State Buckeyes defensive coordinator Greg Schiano is reportedly a front-runner for the Tennessee head-coaching vacancy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasts UT over Greg Schiano reports
Lillian Steele | 27 November, 2017, 01:32

Although Schiano has been an assistant at Ohio State the last two seasons, he posted a 68-67 record as Rutgers' head coach from 2001-11 and had an unsuccessful two-year stint coaching the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Schiano's time as an assistant coach at Penn State in the early 1990's has been the subject of controversy.

Nothing has been made made official at Tennessee, and it will be interesting to see if a deal is finalized following the growing backlash to the report.

Tennessee (4-8, 0-8 SEC) is coming off the worst season in program history.

The Volunteers fired Butch Jones on November 12, the day after they lost 50-17 at Missouri to fall to 0-6 in Southeastern Conference play.

So what's the reaction from the Volunteers fan base in hearing about their new head coach?

Schiano's record as a head coach in both the National Football League and at Rutgers may be uninspiring to Vol fans.

Schiano developed a relationship with Currie when he was out of coaching for two seasons following his short tenure in Tampa. Rutgers had not been to a bowl game since 1978 when Schiano took the job, but led the Scarlet Knights to six bowl games in his final seven years.

Schiano later told ESPN, "I never saw any abuse nor had reason to suspect any abuse during my time at Penn State".
