Who next for Tennessee?

I have no inside knowledge nor does the ole crystal ball work to perfection, but here’s some names U-T may want to look at.

1) Butch Davis- The North Carolina Head Coach makes perfect sense, however the chance of winning at UNC in the dissapointing ACC, drawfs your chance at annual success in the ultra competitive SEC.

2) Mike Leach- He makes less than 2 million at Texas Tech and annually puts together one of the nation’s top and most innovative offenses. Couple him with a defensive mind and you have a super two-pronged attack.

3) Tim Brewster- If you want to roll the dice with a relative unknown, check out the resume of the Minnesota Head Coach. He is a former NFL assistant who is known as a relentless recruiter. His turnaround of the Golden Gophers this season is nothing less than a miracle.

4) Mike Gundy- The Oklahoma State Head Coach may be more known for his Press Conference tirade last season, but the guy is only 40 (Well actually 41). Gundy has the fire and passion to at least be considered.

5) Jim Leavitt- This guy continues to be one of the most underrated coaches in the game. The South Florida Head Coach took that program from it’s infancy and has made it an annual Big East threat.

Others….Chris Peterson, Pat Hill, Lane Kiffin, Jon Gruden, Jim Grobe, Gary Pinkell, Bret Bielema, Mike Bellotti, Will Muschamp, Charlie Strong, Greg Schiano and Brian Kelly.
