Theatrics often emerge in the world of college football and that is a big reason for the overall entertainment level surrounding the sport. In the recent past, though, the good folks at Tennessee have taken things to a new level.
The firing of Butch Jones came as no surprise but, since then, the Vols have offered the job to multiple candidates without success and, of course, endured the Greg Schiano debacle. In addition, Tennessee now has a new athletic director in former head coach Phil Fulmer and that could seemingly open doors to even more craziness in Knoxville.
To that end, former Auburn head coach and current SEC Network analyst Gene Chizik laid out a bizarre scenario that would be oddly fitting of the mess occurring at Tennessee lately.
Keeping Brady Hoke, especially on the heels of him kicking a high-end player off the roster as an interim leader, would not exactly be a conventional move. Yes, Hoke has experience as the former head coach at Michigan but it seems difficult to believe his presence would inspire top-shelf recruiting and performance and it would act as something of a cherry on top of a disastrous offseason.
Of course, this is only one man’s hypothetical but get your popcorn ready if Tennessee does this.
