Schiano to be named Tennessee Vols Head Coach

Greg Schiano is reportedly "close" to finalizing a deal to become the new Tennessee head football coach.

The Volunteers fired Butch Jones on November 12, the day after they lost 50-17 at Missouri to fall to 0-6 in Southeastern Conference play.

Schiano brings a pedigree as a program builder, as he resurrected Rutgers from a century of bad football to make them a nationally competitive program. His best year as a head coach came in 2006 when Rutgers went 11-2. His Ohio State defense has since piqued the interest of Tennessee, which has a history of making such brilliant coaching hires as Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley.

Schiano, 51, has spent the past two seasons as Urban Meyer's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. Schiano finished with a 68-67 record at Rutgers, but that run included two seasons with appearances in the top 10 and six bowl games in his final seven years.

We can not afford to lose him to controversies and it is only a matter of time before he recaptures his form. This should come as a huge relief as Mkhitaryan, despite his poor form, is a top quality player.

This will mark the first significant hire for Currie, who arrived in February.

Was Schiano being considered throughout the coaching search?

Schiano was not the former Buccaneers coach many Vols expected to be announced as their new head coach.
