Not good at Math?

Hoke 11-2 8-5 7-6

Harbaugh 10-3 10-3 currently 6-2

Both also started 25 - 8, so take your pick, the math is just fine

I hope they do hire him.  A school who's star has faded faster than a brett smith post route, and who has to maintain one of the nation's largest recruiting budget just to have the candy-assed kids cheered on by a bunch of inbred orange popsicles.  It's a match made in heaven.

It means a coach with a long layoff can still have success. Which your post seemed to imply couldnít happen

Again...I never said that. Stop assuming and stop comparing apples to oranges(NFL vs College)

I hope Tenn is stupid enough to pay a coach $10 mil. That would be stupid for a coach that hasn't coached College.

I'm probably in the minority but i see Tenn and Florida looking for coaches as a good thing. Both are in the East, both are down but could eventually level out the SEC like Georgia is doing to Bama.

Georgia looks like the most close to replicate a Bama ive seen.

They can try to get Gary Patterson, but they probably won't get him.

It has been rumored that Patterson has been promised a mineral right to a shale if he stays at TCU.  It is rumored that the mineral right is worth $20 million.

If true, really no other school can compete with a one-time payout of $20 million.



It actually could be more than that. The Gary Patterson Foundation could be worth more than that, with him and his wife's family controlling it. Patterson will die in Fort Worth ala Frank Broyles.

I was merely stating that he won a Super Bowl with a team Tony Dungy had built. After that, he didn't have nearly as much success. He hasn't coached in nearly a decade. He has never had to recruit to the level he would have to now.
He's popular because he is charismatic on TV and is very knowledgeable of the game. But that it is a whole different ball game than being a head coach in the SEC. I just don't believe he is the savior that many seem to think.

To be fair the team he played in the Super Bowl was the team he was at the year before. He had a hand in building that team that won the AFC.  You may be right and he wouldn't be a good college coach, we may never really know, but I don't think you can cheapen his Super Bowl win.

TN is tired of losing. they will spend whatever  it takes to get a Big time coach and win.some schools still care about winning.

Umm, Brohm is not a big time coach. Gruden has not coached ANYWHERE in 8 years and has not held a college job in over 20. Patterson is not leaving FW, and BP, yep tearing it up in the ACC, lol.  From the report you quoted, TN is not even looking at the best college coach in the state of TN.

  • Guessing is easier than actually trying!

He won a SB and had .500 career as a HC in the NFL. His coaching kicks the crap out of Saban, Petrino and Pete Carrol (first round) in the NFL.

Recruit would line up for him. The watch him on Monday night football and his QB draft show.

Itís a similar affect to a TV helping make someone President

The last TV guy we hired as a head coach didn't quite work out so well.

It's hard to imagine Gruden taking any coaching job when he can make millions for basically just sitting on a stool in front of a camera.

Apparently Gruden is the frontrunner to getting the Tennessee job per Vegas odds....

Gruden - +175

Jeff Brohm - +600
Bobby P - +600

For reference they got Peyton Manning at +10,000

$100
all bets you see are based off a $100 wager, so betting $100 on Manning would get you $10,000. So, divide $10,000/$100=$100. So, $1x$100=$100. If you bet $10x$100=$1000. Hope that helps!

Why would any program want a guy that hasn't coached in a decade has almost no college coaching experience and has almost no experience at the college level with recruiting.  Oh yeah because he won a Super Bowl that was handed to him by the former staff.

Why the Jon Gruden to Tennessee rumors have some merit
« Reply #43684 on: November 12, 2017, 02:26:11 pm »



Quote
Bring on the #Grumors.

Tennessee finally pulled the plug on Butch Jones Sunday after a disastrous 50-17 loss to Missouri. Jones recruited well during his five years at Tennessee but never capitalized on a down SEC East and didn't endear himself to the Vols fanbase with hokey sayings like "Champions of Life."

Now, the attention turns to "Monday Night Football" analyst Jon Gruden, long the object of Tennessee fan affection. Gruden, who won a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, pops up every time Tennessee has a job opening, and this year is no different. With Jones officially out, expect the Gruden rumors to be in full force.

Why is Gruden so associated with Tennessee openings? Fans usually point to the fact he previously worked as a Tennessee graduate assistant, his wife, Cindy, is a former Tennessee cheerleader and he has a son who is currently a student at UT. The rumors picked up steam in October when he visited his son and attended the Tennessee-South Carolina game.

It's more than that, though.

Gruden previously told school administrators that Tennessee is one of only three college jobs he'd ever take...

Gruden is just going to easily be able to deal with boosters and diva high school coaches when he hasn't coached for a decade?

Ask Lovie Smith how hard the workload in college is... And he's in the mid major B1G west division

Pat Forde gives strong opinion about chance of Jon Gruden coaching Tennessee


Quote
Donít waste time with the revived Grumors (3) ó Jon Gruden is not walking off that private plane in Knoxville as the next coach of Tennessee. Athletic director John Currie could do worse than Memphisí Mike Norvell (4), although he might bear uncomfortable resemblance to Jones as an American Athletic Conference-level coach who is still riding the momentum of the successful previous regime ó Norvell is to Justin Fuente at Memphis as Jones is to Brian Kelly at Cincinnati.

Agree.  Vols have talent all over the field.  Comes down to Xs and Os no matter how popular a coach may be.  Managing to recruit the best talent to your school is akin to a general manager of a pro team.  After that. . . still just Xs and Os.  Butch Jones did not put his team in a position to execute with said talent.  The next guy in line may be able to more aptly manage another guys talent . . .better Xs and Os.

Of all the unknowns he is probably the biggest. Dynamic personality won the Super Bowl ,major name recognition. Flip side, he's never been a college coach and hasn't coached in almost a decade. He could be a major hire or a colossal failure. Predicting how he'd do is next to impossible. Maybe UT pulls it off and then we can finally see.

Any time there is a coaching vacancy in the NFL or at a big-time college program, ESPN broadcaster Jon Gruden always appears as a potential hire. It's not surprising. He is an intelligent coach, who has the ability to communicate with everyone. There is an itch broadcasting can't scratch...


Quote
Gruden is linked to rumors of coaching college football at Tennessee, even reportedly contacting coaches to be on his staff. Where there is smoke, there is fire, and Gruden is in middle of it all. Even if he doesn't take this job, he will be coaching again before you know it. Just hear what he had to say on the Rich Eisen Show:

    I have talked to people in years past. I plan on keeping my options open. If something comes along down the road, we'll take a look at it.

There is no way Gruden walks away from such an easy life to get thrown back into the meat grinder...
