Tennessee settles on other ex-Bucs coach: Greg Schiano's back

Tennessee settles on other ex-Bucs coach: Greg Schiano's back

Tennessee dismissed former head coach Butch Jones on November 12 following a 50-17 loss to the Missouri Tigers.

Almost 30 years later, it looks like it could be the other way around.

Greg Schiano is now finalizing a deal to become the next head coach of the Volunteers, according to Dan Wolken of USA TODAY Sports.

Schiano, 51, has spent the past two seasons as Meyer's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Schiano had become a focus of the Volunteers' head coaching search. Although nothing official has been announced, the apparent hire has been met by negative reviews.

He has previous head coaching experience, having coached in the National Football League for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and at the college level for Rutgers. Jones went 34-27 over five seasons in Knoxville.

The Vols ended their regular season 4-8 and 0-8 in the SEC.

As the defensive play-caller with Ohio State, Schiano has the Buckeyes' defense ranked 20th nationally in points allowed (19.8) and eighth nationally yards allowed (291.8) per game.

During his 11 season tenure as the leader of the Scarlett Knights, Schiano managed to produced six winning seasons.

Despite all the hype built around bringing in Jon Gruden or Dan Mullen to lead the Vols, Athletic Director John Currie has apparently selected Greg Schiano.
