    Yeah, no chance he goes back to Rice. Their fans and administration may be fairly apathetic to the football program, but not that apathetic.

    He has to state interest. His payout from LSU requires that he attempt to find employment coaching. If he isn't hired, they keep paying. He is interested in getting paid, not in coaching Tennessee.

    Now Sumlin might go to Tennessee since he does not have a job and I think Texas A&M pays his contract in full regardless of his future employment. Every coach should be calling his agent. Tennessee had no business trying to hire most P5 head coach of quality.

    Blast from the past...A recap of the 2010 HC search at Tennessee in which Derek Dooley (17-20 at LA Tech over three years) became HC at Tennessee after Will Muschamp (Texas DC), Troy Calhoun (Air Force HC), David Cutcliffe (Duke HC), Kyle Whittingham (Utah HC), Al Golden (Temple HC), and Kevin Sumlin (Houston HC) were interviewed/turned down the offer.

    Re: 2017 Coaching Carousel

    It seems like Tennessee would be one of the premier jobs in the country, so I can't imagine what is going on. Looking at their recruits, they appear to compare favorably to everyone in the SEC except Alabama.

    Hard to believe they can't even get a recently-fired coach interested.

    They went through many candidates in 2010 for sure, but those coaches had jobs nowhere near the caliber of the current candidates. Only 2 of the previous candidates have jobs that are now considered Power 5 schools. This time they have only offered Power 5 head coaches, after offering Schiano, who was a former NFL head coach and took Rutgers from being a bottom feeder to being ranked as high as 3rd and a post bowl ranking of 12th.

    FSU sources are now saying they expect Jimbo to leave for A&M. FSU said to target first year Oregon coach Willie Taggert.
