Vols In Talks With New Head Coach

27 November, 2017, 00:54 | Author: Carla Brady
  • Meyer Vols have contacted Schiano about head coaching job

Tennessee officials hoped to announce the hiring of Schiano Sunday afternoon.

Although Schiano has been an assistant at Ohio State the last two seasons, he posted a 68-67 record as Rutgers' head coach from 2001-11 and had an unsuccessful two-year stint coaching the NFL's Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now he'll try his hand against a new Volunteers head man.

Schiano is now Ohio State's defensive coordinator, be he has a relationship with Tennessee athletic director John Currie.

Schiano spent the past two seasons at Ohio State's defensive coordinator.




After firing Butch Jones earlier this season, the Tennessee Volunteers have been taking part in a national search for a replacement.

Tennessee (4-8, 0-8 SEC) ended its season Saturday with a 42-24 loss to Vanderbilt.

Rutgers went 11-2 in 2006 and posted two other nine-win seasons during Schiano's tenure. The Scarlet Knights made six bowl appearances under Schiano. The Vols must've been anxious some other big name college program or National Football League team was going to hire Schiano before they could.
