Has Tennessee found its man?
Tennessee will reportedly hire Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano as its next head coach and is expected to make an official announcement on Sunday, according to USA Today‘s Dan Wolken.
Schiano spent the past two seasons with the Buckeyes and had previously coached at Rutgers from 2001-11, which included six bowl game appearances during his final seven seasons, as well as a a 68-67 (28-48) overall record.
After being linked to several notable college coaching positions, Schiano took over as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach in 2012 and went 11-21 before being fired after his second season.
The Vols reportedly turned their focus to Schiano after focusing on Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen, who is expected to accept the head coaching position at Florida.
