Tennessee fans are holding an actual protest over Greg Schiano rumors

Twitter reacts to Greg Schiano becoming the Vols next football coach

Naturally, this meant that head coach Butch Jones was out on his ass before the season even ended, replaced by interim coach and MI failure Brady Hoke. Ohio State ranked No. 3 in scoring defense last season with Schiano as co-coordinator and is No. 8 in total defense this year.

The Tennessee Volunteers just finished their worst season-at least by total wins-since 1977, going 4-8 with zero victories in SEC play. According to this one report, Tennessee is finalizing a deal to name former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano as the program's next head coach.

The New Jersey native has never coached in the Southeastern Conference before.




Earlier in the day, it was reported that Schiano had become a focus of the Volunteers' head coaching search. After falling out the National Football League trap door, Schiano then served time as a high school coach until getting a job under Urban Meyer.

In 2016, Schiano was implicated as a possible witness in the Penn State child rape scandal. Rutgers went 11-2 in 2006 under Schiano, finishing the season 12th in the nation. He posted a 68-67 record at Rutgers from 2001 to 2011, and had an 11-21 record leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Schiano worked at Penn State from 1990-95, first as a graduate assistant and then as defensive backs coach.
