Ran off our best basketball coach in a long time.
Ran an over eager compliance department that actively searched for problems.
Was a very annoying PR presence.
Made being a fan feel like a transaction and devoid of any passion.

This is all true. To be fair he did a great job with facilities and fundraising which we were about a decade or two behind on when he was hired.

Thanks for the replies.

Anecdotally, he was not well liked in his first stop in Knoxville. He also learned at the feet of Mike Hamilton, a man partly responsible for tanking our AD. David Blackburn is a local who would have been a slam dunk, and Phil Fulmer made a late run at the job thanks to his donor affiliations. Not many were expecting this.

Can you give a wiki on how Phil is treated?  Seemed like a bit of regret with what seemed like an apparent force out (at first), then a run at the AD like he is Barry Alvarez.

Phil is a Tennessee guy who's been around the program for 40+ years. He got the job at the expense of Vol legend Johnny Majors. From that point on, there's been a rift in the fanbase between the Fulmer and Majors loyalists. Fulmer stuck around a little too long (imo). We lost to Vandy in 05 and Wyoming in 08. He felt wronged by his firing and probably always will. There are a lot of Vol fans that feel the same way.

To answer your question, I would say the majority like Fulmer while there are many that are still loyal to Majors.

Politically, Fulmer has always been well connected, and it was impressive to see him get his name in the AD contest over the last several weeks. There were donors who wanted Fulmer and donors that wanted Blackburn. Our new chancellor (Beverly Davenport) got to have at least some say in this because the search went on too long. Apparently many donors were blindsided by this hire. It's going to be interesting to see how this goes with Currie.

We just settled a Title IX lawsuit that was hanging over the AD. I've heard that that was part of the decision making process.

He'll be good for finances, generally. Don't really have much else to compliment him on. At the right school that has the right needs, he could be the perfect guy. But not a place that doesn't have excellent, squeaky clean coaches in place.

That's correct if he's like that. We've been on the receiving end of sanctions twice now. Once with B. Pearl (because of our legal incompetence) and then with Donnie Tyndall (although his show cause was for stuff at So. Miss). Seems like that will make Currie even more gun shy.

At Tennessee, an example of that was Doug Dickey (who coached here and then came back as AD). An ass to be sure, but we didn't have any trouble with the NCAA while he was here.

We do. The Big Orange caravan makes several stops around Tennessee and in Atlanta.

If some schadenfreude is what you're looking for (that's about all we live for here now), our football coach does not like having others meddle in his affairs. He doesn't take criticism well. I assume he and Currie will butt heads frequently. Apparently, Rick Barnes is not happy about this development either. Should be entertaining.

i don't care if i like the AD. i don't care if i like our coaches.  i do care if our good coaches like our AD though. if they don't then it makes it harder to keep them and harder to hire replacements when they leave because word gets around in coaching circles.

I'm not sure if it has anything to do with liking each other, but there has to be some sort of respect. It seems that neither Bill or Frank had any respect for Currie. That's a problem. Most people realize admin gonna admin, but it reaches a point where their is a disconnect and it seems clear Currie had that happen with 2 coaches. Then the guy he hired to replace one of them may have had all the respect for him in the world, but he burned down the program. I understand the issues people have with this completely.

I'm not sure if it has anything to do with liking each other, but there has to be some sort of respect. It seems that neither Bill or Frank had any respect for Currie. That's a problem. Most people realize admin gonna admin, but it reaches a point where their is a disconnect and it seems clear Currie had that happen with 2 coaches. Then the guy he hired to replace one of them may have had all the respect for him in the world, but he burned down the program. I understand the issues people have with this completely.

That's what we (UT) had with Doug Dickey during the 80s and 90s. As far as I know, Johnny Majors and Phil Fulmer had the latitude to do what they wanted with the program. Dickey kept the NCAA out of Knoxville and had us in good standing as far as bowls, etc. goes.

Thanks for the replies.

Anecdotally, he was not well liked in his first stop in Knoxville. He also learned at the feet of Mike Hamilton, a man partly responsible for tanking our AD. David Blackburn is a local who would have been a slam dunk, and Phil Fulmer made a late run at the job thanks to his donor affiliations. Not many were expecting this.

he wasn't well liked here either but my man pissclams will assure you he wasn't liked both here and at UT the first time around because of inexperience and now he is experienced so I'm sure everyone will absolutely love this completely likeable irl individual. have fun.


i don't have to like someone to work with them or to acknowledge that they're being successful at their job
i never gave a crap about liking john currie, how i feel about him is inconsequential


It's important to me to like them because I am a fan and I do this for entertainment. 

it's important to me to like our coaches and that they're successful
i suppose it'd be ok to like an administrator too but really i don't care about that.  if he hires good coaches and runs a successful athletics department i could give two shits what kind of boots he wears to a nut fry.

to each their own


i don't care if i like the AD. i don't care if i like our coaches.  i do care if our good coaches like our AD though. if they don't then it makes it harder to keep them and harder to hire replacements when they leave because word gets around in coaching circles.

agreed but then again, it's not like snyder nor martin are the most agreeable coaches in their profession.  probably leaning heavily towards the opposite of that, actually.

i'm hoping we hire an AD who is universally loved by fans as well as the coaches that work for him/her and that we win a ton of champy trophs under his/her reign.  unfortunately, i'm a realist and have been following k-state for long enough to know that isn't going to happen.  but we can dream.

I hate sounding like I am trashing Snyder but GMAB with acting like not getting along with Snyder is some mark against Currie. Snyder got to do whatever the he'll he wanted for two decades, some times to the detriment to the program and the department. Currie forced Snyder to schedule better, advance the facilities, and to become slightly more media friendly. Snyder has spoken publicly about his resistance to these things. How can any of you be critical of Currie because of his relationship with Snyder? That literally makes no sense at all.

That's fine if he wants to run a tight ship and is obsessive over it on the parts of the athletic department that are not sports programs.  His meddling in individual programs is what makes him a hyper control freak and creates tension between himself and successful coaches.  He doesn't know where to stop.  I don't see that as a desirable trait in an athletic director.

apparently two of the more hard to get along with coaches in their respective sports didn't get along with john currie (this is based upon second hand information). see the note about bill and john not saying hi to each other at church, for example.

as far as getting along with fans goes, people here hate him because frank martin left k-state, but 99% of our fan base hasn't thought twice about whether or not john currie is personable and don't care anything about the subject.  he was so unpersonable that they continued to throw money at him and the department

Here... I'll give you a good example.

I met the man no less than 12-15 times at athletic alumni events where he introduced himself as if he'd never met me. While admittedly I'm not always the absolute best at remembering names, 99% of the time I can (like most people) remember if I've met someone in a relatively small, exclusive, social gathering.

EVERY time, save for the very last this December in Houston, he would introduce himself as if he'd never met or laid eyes on me before.  While I had no real need for him to remember my name, the very least he could have done was act like he at least recognized me or remembered having met me at least once or twice before over the course of 10-12 occurrences.

I've spoken with others as well who've had the exact same experience and a good friend of mine that many would consider a "big cigar" uses the term "socially inept" when describing your wonderful new AD.

One of the earlier stories was Tyler Locketts's recruitment.  John tied the assistant coaches phones to a call tracking software to cross check against call limits.  His software highlighted Michael Smith calling Tyler Lockett.  Michael Smith was a teammate of Kevin Lockett and was Tyler's godfather, which is well within the realms of a pre-existing relationship allowing extra contact.  John took a super conservative stance and self reported.  He then even went more super-conservative on the self-implied sanctions against Michael via recruiting restrictions.

This worries me the most. Vol fans were squeamish when Kiffin played around in the gray area of NCAA rules. That tendency along with Currie's paranoia about violations is not a good recipe for recruiting in the SEC.

I don't normally listen to the GPC podcast, but I did last night. Fitz made the point that if Currie has something against you, he will basically make up a rule to prevent you from doing certain things. He pointed out that GPC used to be a pregame sponsor for football with a segment and that Fitz used to be the color commentator back up for basketball. A couple of years ago, Currie came to him with a rule that said because of his status as a media member and being part of rivals, he was not able to work for athletics any longer or be a sponsor. However, Fitz then pointed out many rivals colleagues that work for athletics at their institutions, including a guy at Texas Tech and the guy at Tennessee.

Granted, I get that some of that is Fitz being ticked at Currie, but when he pointed out others that do the exact same thing with no problems that Currie made up rules to prevent him from doing, he made his point IMO.

He just did weird crap that I know shouldn't bother me, but it did.  He did stuff like make a progres walk through video of our new basketball training facility while it was being constructed.  During it he said "this is our men's head coach's office".  Any normal person would say "This will be Frank's office".  In the summer ESPN did one of those throw away "best of in the conference" series where they give the conference bloggers "name this' questions.  In those they always pass around the love become they can't just answer "Oklahoma" or "Texas" on everything.  So one of their bloggers said KSU for the Big12 pregame.  Another online, random click-bait article named Manhattan " America's #1 college town".  He put those two awards on a giant banner and hung it on the side of the stadium.  Stuff like that just showed me he was out of touch with reality and had no perspective.

Normally I'd say this is tin-foil hat thinking, but my first thought when reading this is John knew about Fitz' rep on Twitter and didn't want that associated with KSU in case Fitz got drunk and tweeted something super creepy.  John doesn't need the risk of that guy being financially tied to KSU.  Which like or hate Fitz, is ridiculous. 

I don't know if it's been said in this thread, but John once told a reporter "I am risk management".  I think he takes that thinking into compliance, which is where it could hurt you on the field.  With John there is no "I go 4 over the speed limit, if it accidentally go up to 8 over, I'll pay the ticket and move on" mentality.

Maybe he apologized to her in person but he never did publicly, just gross.

True, that was a really bad look.

that was part of it.

I still feel a bit uneasy about snitching on him for that because, snitches you know. However, Fitz is a legit bad person and if I have to step out of my values to hurt a bad person, I'll just have to live with it.

The tweets are gone but he essentially called her fat and gross on twitter, subtweeted her if course. When she came back later that season I @ed her the tweets and she went to Currie and ESPN with the tweets.

he found a mystery receipt for a small cash transfer from a friend to one of our best players and suspended him in the hours before a sweet 16 game.  That's a real thing that actually happened

Second round

to go to the S16 was what I meant.  Does that make a difference?

It wasn't a correction that needed to be made, my apologies.

I think he did a good job of leveraging fear (of being left out in a conference realignment scenario) to get money to drastically improve facilities.  Fear is probably the easiest thing in the world to sell, tho.  But kudos to him for taking advantage.

My thoughts are somewhere in the middle.  Fitz probably knew/knows why.  He even said "when John doesn't like you."  He knew why John didn't like him.  That's why we really didn't hear about it until after Currie left.

You didn't. A+++ source though. I don't know if Fitz knows she reported him but I don't know how he didn't know. So his going around acting like he doesn't know why Currie slapped him on the wrist is complete BS. He didn't get pulled from working for K-State until the next season so maybe that's why he's "confused."

However, some semblance of people skills and being relatable seems important to me.
Could you all share some specifics of his shortcomings in relating to coaches and fans
have you seen the office? do you know who Gabe is? Basically Currie is Gabe from the office.

That lazy writer said Bill hated John for the Auburn game...a home game John didn't schedule, which was a return game for an away game neither John nor Bill had any part of.

If he said Bill was mad about Stanford, sure, but that lazy writer just remembered we played Auburn and assumed that was one of the top two reasons Bill hated John and wrote it down.

Always a favorite message board question. Would you rather have lost the 98 NC so that Fulmer would have been fired earlier? Fulmer's lame duck years started the dominoes that have fallen the last 10 years for us.

I was still in school and remember watching the BCS ratings toward the end of the 98 season. I remember UCLA and KSU stumbling (had to look up the details), enabling UT to go ahead in the BCS rankings. UT very nearly lost to Arkansas (Clint Stoerner fumble) and also to Miss St in the SEC championship game. We got a lot of good bounces that year.

It is ironic that Tee won the NC and not Peyton. Fulmer had the good fortune of getting Manning in 94, having a great sidekick in David Cutcliffe (OC), and having Rodney Garner as a recruiter. Without those pieces, Fulmer would have been just another coach.

My thoughts on John Currie:

His Supporters usually point to facility upgrades, fundraising and financial improvements as proof that he is a good AD.

I would point out that while the K-State Athletic Department had issues before John arrived, the Athletic Department had very little debt, had Coach Snyder and Frank Martin.

With the growth in Conference TV revenue we quickly improved the budget and added a bunch of debt to build our Football Stadium upgrades.  We had Football, Baseball and Basketball all win Conference Titles in the same year and that helped spur donor support.

I have heard that the Coaches and Currie were not getting along for years. For a while I was neutral on who was to blame but after seeing Currie handle other more public issues, I believe Currie is to blame.

Those other issues include:

1. Starship Enterprise incident, where Currie suspended our Band Director from going to Lawrence because some fans have a dirty mind. 
http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/09/kansas-state-apologizes-suspends-directer-of-bands-offensive-nsfw-halftime-show

2.  The Jamar Samuels western union suspension. (As described in previous posts).

3. The hiring of oscar Weber

4.  Not firing oscar Weber/ hiring Brad Underwood last year.

5.  The Leti Romero incident.
http://www.bringonthecats.com/2014/4/18/5629044/k-state-wbb-leti-romeros-transfer-appeal-denied

as far as getting along with fans goes, people here hate him because frank martin left k-state, but 99% of our fan base hasn't thought twice about whether or not john currie is personable and don't care anything about the subject.  he was so unpersonable that they continued to throw money at him and the department

I don't normally listen to the GPC podcast, but I did last night. Fitz made the point that if Currie has something against you, he will basically make up a rule to prevent you from doing certain things. He pointed out that GPC used to be a pregame sponsor for football with a segment and that Fitz used to be the color commentator back up for basketball. A couple of years ago, Currie came to him with a rule that said because of his status as a media member and being part of rivals, he was not able to work for athletics any longer or be a sponsor. However, Fitz then pointed out many rivals colleagues that work for athletics at their institutions, including a guy at Texas Tech and the guy at Tennessee.

Granted, I get that some of that is Fitz being ticked at Currie, but when he pointed out others that do the exact same thing with no problems that Currie made up rules to prevent him from doing, he made his point IMO.

How do I listen to that?

KMAN said that Currie may have been in Gen Myers bomb sights because Currie wanting to leave was becoming a distraction.   They also said that Currie was regularly stirring up crap directly with student athletes ala many Jamar's, and that Currie is the sole reason Foster isn't at Kstate.

I'm not sure I can believe that part about Foster.  oscar seemed really happy to toss him under the bus, back over him, and drive off.

When Foster has publicly blamed himself, I'm not sure how that blame can be transferred from the player, completely over all of his coaches, to the athletic director.

This would certainly indicate a change in narrative, I can't think of this as anything else other than another Brucexcuse. We've went from Currie allowing oscar to blow up the program to Currie forcing oscar to blow up the program and the only things that have changed are another shitty season from oscar and a new address for Currie, very convenient.
Fitz made reference to oscar being upset with Currie as well. It's funny that we didn't hear a word about this before February 28th, pretty obvious where this leak is coming from.

apparently two of the more hard to get along with coaches in their respective sports didn't get along with john currie (this is based upon second hand information). see the note about bill and john not saying hi to each other at church, for example.

as far as getting along with fans goes, people here hate him because frank martin left k-state, but 99% of our fan base hasn't thought twice about whether or not john currie is personable and don't care anything about the subject.  he was so unpersonable that they continued to throw money at him and the department

Quote from:  Jimmy Hyams

Currie had a tenuous relationship with some UT coaches and boosters when he was an assistant athletic director at Tennessee.

John Currie just has the worst luck.  Coaches that are hard to get along with are everywhere he goes.

coaches are hard to get along with, you are correct
the majority of them are controlling, power hungry, assholes

We have more then enough information to know and say with high probability that John Currie likes to get into things, where he really doesn't belong.    To add to that, we can lend significant weight to the concept that John Currie is weirdly antagonistic.

As talented as he was and as much as I would've liked to keep him, Foster probably needed to go.  That doesn't mean oscar should've got a free "restart" since he recruited him and wasn't able to manage him.

So, its been a super long time since I've posted anything, but I got some awesome nuggets from an A++ source about Currie recently.

Apparently, he was a huge dickhead to staff always. A story was told that Currie was known to berate employees behind closed doors constantly. One day, an athletics staff employee showed up to an event at the Alumni Center with the wrong brand of water bottle. Currie lost his crap. This was a closed door event.

Jerry Kill was, in fact, hired to be the go-between for Snyder and Currie. Snyder refused to speak with him directly, and wouldn't even acknowledge him directly in meetings. I can just picture Bill saying something to Jerry at a meeting and Jerry relaying it to Currie, who is also in the meeting like, "John, Bill wants you to know he still can't stand you" while Bill has a crap-eating grin on his face.

This all has probably been discussed, but I missed it here.

No, not me. That video was brutal. We have a lot of great fans. However, enough of them are like that guy to make it possible for the powers that be to let football (and UT athletics) slide as much as they have. It's like they don't even hear the warnings that KSU fans have told us about Currie.

In the past, we never lost to Vandy or Kentucky, now we regularly lose to Vandy.

Though Fitzpatrick found that 20 percent of schools at all levels have female athletic directors, only 10 percent of Division I schools do. And among the 120 Football Bowl Subdivision schools, there are just seven female A.D.’s. One reason for that imbalance is the preeminence of that sport.

Jerry Kill would rather bathe his d in acid then set it on fire than work for John Currie again.  He could take less than a year of him at KSU before he left a cushy job he hoped to cruise to retirement in due to his dislike of JC's winning personality.  Says all you need to know.

Chizik is about as close as you can get - it is just some much harder to ride the talents of guys the previous coach recruited in football - even Chizik at least closed the deal on Cam which is something oscar has never done.

One of the candidates for the AD job was a local guy who had served for years in the UTAD, David Blackburn. A lot of people wanted him, and he probably would have been a great hire. Fulmer threw his name into the hat in the middle of that search. Fulmer's ego along with some blackballing on the UT Board of Trustees meant that Blackburn didn't get the job. So we ending up taking Currie off your hands because he served sweet tea in orange cups to our Chancellor when she interviewed him.

I would have preferred cheerwine.

But I don't see why Tennessee wants him gone tomorrow.  Nothing is gained and it could be a bad look since you're not firing for cause.  Just start your search now and fire him the day before the sec ccg.  But this team seems to be headed to a weird place.  The weed story this week and weird apology were kinda weak.

Tennessee is about to put $340 million into stadium upgrades.  I'm not sure I'd call them 7th in the conference, but could see 3rd in the east.  The school has a lot of upside, amazing setting, (great hill to look upon, even though you can't see them from in the stadium), crap loads of growth on campus (huge student union project), and some pretty good talent around them.  For sure though, the people here think they are on the verge of competing with Bama with just a HC change.  It's a little bit odd to see their expectations.  Bu that is what happens when you have years of the SEC is best nonsense.

It's incredible how much campus has changed. It's not much of an exaggeration to say that they're in the process of tearing most buildings down and putting new ones in their place. They'll leave the core buildings on the Hill, but a lot of buildings have been torn down.

At worst, they'll hire a B list candidate who'll win 7 or 8 games a year. Unfortunately, the stadium will always fill up for those type of seasons. It's why I think it's unlikely that we'll hire one of the A listers, like Gruden, Kelly, Patterson, Petersen, Mullen, Franklin, etc. I'll believe it when I see it.

You are absolutely right on the B list hire big orange, the Currie formula at KState was
1. Previous head coaching experience
2. At least a similar resume to the coach he fired

Currie is a numbers guy that will look for the guy that looks good on paper and he is not going to move heaven and earth to get A lister because he doesn't want a coach that could out leverage him.

Our fans have had to put up with the tail end of the Fulmer years (where he stayed for 2 or 3 too many seasons), and now three calamitous hires.

If they don't at least trot out a big name coach, I don't know what our fans will do.

That last part about not wanting a too-powerful coach worries me. The Gruden supporters think that he wasn't hired here in 2012 because our donors wouldn't give him total control, like Saban. Even if we don't get Gruden, I hope that doesn't scare off other coaches.

FWIW, Florida's facilities are apparently awful, and even though Scott Striclin is now the AD Jeremy Foley is still around helping with decision-making and he is apparently tight fisted with money. ONE of the issues the athletic department had with JM is that he brought this up, unprompted at a press conference.

They just completed a new indoor practice facility in 2015 and are breaking ground on a training center/dining hall next month. Also worth noting that Laird Veatch will be involved with oversight of that project. He'll probably have some input on their coaching hire too.

I think TC's list is very reasonable. 

Bama is obviously Bama.  I knew UF had awful facilities, but didn't know they had that much work scheduled.  They seem like an AD with a bit of a direction issue with a couple tough football hires and not keeping up with the Jones. I don't know about LSU to make a judgement, but gut has them above UT.  Auburn has recent success and hasn't really been in the basement.  We'll see how Georgia sustains.  I don't know one way or another on their facilities.

Also UTenn has amazing transit buses unlike what I've seen at UF, so that practically worth one place up on the power rankings.

No sane person would hold that against Currie. Gruden has turned down NFL jobs to stay at MNF but Genesee Tennessee fans are so stupid and myopic that they thought he'd leave to go there. I would be like us pitching a fit that we don't get get Dabo to replace Snyder.

Gruden has a pretty long history with Tennessee, and he likes the Vols (says he does at least). He has played this game before (2012), so it won't surprise me at all if this is a big tease. I say tease b/c neither JC nor Gruden has shot down the rumors for almost a month now. There really haven't been any credible reports as to whom JC has talked. I wish we just had a normal coaching search where we talked to one coach, he said no, we talked to next coach, etc. Instead, the fans are worked up to a fever pitch. The press conference should be something to behold.

Currie drops a turd, hiring a turd.

Schiano, whomever hires him, will be the second most successful college hire made this year. He was awesome at Rutgers and it wasn't with just smoke and mirrors, he got real NFL talent there. I wouldn't think a K-Stater would need to be reminded how good Rutgers was.

Quote
Former Penn State assistant coaches Greg Schiano and Tom Bradley knew that Jerry Sandusky, their colleague on Joe Paterno’s football staff, was acting improperly with young boys years before law-enforcement authorities were first notified, according to testimony from former Penn State assistant Mike McQueary that was unsealed Tuesday by a Philadelphia court.

McQueary, who testified in Sandusky’s 2012 criminal case that he had told Paterno of seeing Sandusky rape a boy in 2001, said in the 2015 deposition that he had “briefly” discussed with Bradley what he had seen.

“He said another assistant coach had come to him in the early ’90s about a very similar situation to mine, and he said that he had — someone had come to him as far back as early as the ’80s about seeing Jerry Sandusky doing something with a boy,” McQueary said.

According to McQueary, Bradley identified Schiano, now the Ohio State defensive coordinator, as the other assistant. In response to a question about whether Bradley had shared details of what Schiano had said, McQueary related a conversation with Bradley.

“No,” McQueary replied, according to the documents, “only that he had — I can’t remember if it was one night or one morning — but that Greg had come into his office white as a ghost and said he just saw Jerry doing something to a boy in the shower. And that’s it. That’s all he ever told me.”

If I recall, key to Schiano's success was his ability to hold camps all summer long in Florida to tap into the recruiting down there in a big way.  That elevated Rutgers in regard to speed and talent in their lesser conference quite quickly.

As a result of that tactic, the NCAA no longer allows a school to go this massive camp route far from home.  In addition, he will be trying to elevate talent to compete in a much tougher conference.

Not saying he will fail.  But the hire isn't a slam dunk, either.

Hes not alone in blame for the situation but he’s the one that will take the brunt of the fans anger and hate. Like the face of a scandal they are the one to get fired and blamed.

Can we all be honest here....UT fans don't give 2 shits about Schiano's involvement (or lack thereof) at Penn State.  If he had the same history but his name was Saban or Meyer, they wouldn't say one word about it and would be overjoyed with the hire. They're pissed because he's a retread just like Oscar.

Tennessee has backed out of a memorandum of understanding with Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano to be the Volunteers' next football coach, sources told ESPN's Chris Low.

The memorandum of understanding was signed by both parties Sunday in Columbus, Ohio, and the school had planned to introduce Schiano at a news conference Sunday night.

I didn't know or had forgotten about any Sandusky ties, but had been under the impression he was unhireable as a head coach because of what players and peers thought of him, mostly from his NFL stint.  That made him a perfect fit to be somebody so desperate for a HC gig that he'd work for Currie.

The desired coaches (Kelly, Mullen, Frost, others?) wanted nothing to do with Currie.  Agree that the outrage over Sandusky things is cover for being mad they were shunned by anyone considered good.

So there was already all that.  And after today, every part of tennessee is going to be considered even more toxic by prospects. 

I love it.

Yeah, I mean, it may be nothing, but if an individuals name is mentioned, under oath, in court, that should be a major red flag.  And really, how can they settle for this guy, who was "below average" in Rutgers, and his satellite camps would now be illegal?

I mean, there are far better young coaches that they could had reached out.  Like Neal Brown from Troy.  Hell, Matt Campbell would be a great hire because of what he did in Toledo and his one year in ISU. There are more that I'm forgetting off of my head.

But I'm more inclined to believe that the real problem is Currie if we were to believe that the understanding he formed a list of 1. Gruden 2. Frost 3. Mullen and Schiano was the emergency option... and 1 to 3 told him to get bent.

Like I said, I had no awareness (or interest) in Schiano pre Rutgers (and post Rutgers) and truly had no idea he was at PSU. 

Apparently Currie didn’t either.  In some things are similar yet different fashion:  I’m just a dude with no agenda (but I will neither confirm nor deny that I’m a POS).  John Currie is a hyperactive control freak P5 AD with an agenda.

Can we all be honest here....UT fans don't give 2 shits about Schiano's involvement (or lack thereof) at Penn State.  If he had the same history but his name was Saban or Meyer, they wouldn't say one word about it and would be overjoyed with the hire. They're pissed because he's a retread just like Oscar.

When they were still on board with Butch Jones they had nothing at all to say about Jones calling a player who reported a sexual assault a traitor and that same player getting beat up in the UT locker room. These people are all shitbags willing to be led into embarrassment by Clay Travis. I hope they end up with Bo Pelini.

Currie could be having a really good life in Manhattan right now if he'd simply stayed out of the sports/human stuff and let those things win and point to them and ask rich people for money.  His dumb letters and hardhat tweets would've been ignored.

Totally 100% agreed.  If he would had left Frank and Bill alone during his time here, do his job, and raise money, he would have been a great AD, and I would be fine with that.

Unfortunately, his ego got the best of him.

Great day in Big Orange Country! John Currie will not be the AD at the end of the week imo. That will also be great!

after what your fanbase did to he and schiano, i’m sure it will be quite easy to fill both positions
good luck with that

Yes at least we stood by quietly while he ruined our basketball program and would have ruined our football program (given the chance).  Just bend over and bite the pillow like we did UT fans!

Ruined our basketball program is amazingly dramatic at best, a outright lie at worst. We have a squeaky voiced dork for a basketball coach, any other issues?

What we will never know for sure, is whether Schiano was Currie's pick for KSU as well.  AD's have a "short list," right?  Would this have been who we would have gotten if Snyder had stepped down before Currie departed? 

There is no way in hell the KSU community would have mustered the outrage that the UT community gathered in such a short period of time.  KSU fans would have definitely just taken it.

crap man, all you have to do is perform a search on this site for Schiano's name just last year. I don't recall hardly anyone having serious objection to his name being brought up. It went from yes to meh.

We haven't made it to the first weekend of the NCAA tournament since Currie forced frank out. Ruined is an overstatement, but Currie definitely seemed to go out of his way to make it worse which a really weird stance for an athletic director to take.

I’m Lol’ing, but I’ve never heard a peep about Schiano and Sandusky, and now several reporters are saying there was never really anything to it.

Lol’ing at Currie, hate to see someone who may have done nothing wrong get skewered on social media.

The problem is, while there may never really anything into it, it was testified, under oath that he knew of the situation and didn't do anything.

Okay, hadn’t seen or heard that.

justifies the bullshit the Tennessee fans are doing or worth ruining the careers of Currie and Schiano.

The DA didn't deem it necessary to get Bradley or Schiano on record, under oath. These people are labeling this guy an enabler to a pedophile all because they didn't want him as a football coach.

There is no way in hell the KSU community would have mustered the outrage that the UT community gathered in such a short period of time.  KSU fans would have definitely just taken it.

If this is accurate, i doubt he would have even been interested.

Is the Washington State job open? He really should be working for the NCAA though.

It is.  I joked Saturday about the Leach to Tennessee rumors in that why would Leach escape Schulz only to go to Currie.  Then I joked about Tennessee trading Currie for Leach so that everyone's where and with who they want. 

It would still work.

Actually not a bad idea. Washington State needs to get their financial house in order. Tennessee would get a great coach. Not sure if he fits into the SEC as well as he does in the PAC but this is probably better than what will actually happen.

Right?  There'd be some upset cougs, but nothing organized and outraged enough to derail things.  Schulz and Currie could retire or go somewhere even more remote within 5 years before it gets to problematic.

Yeah Ziegler is a real piece of crap. The blog post gets into him as a 9/11 truther, I'm also pretty sure he's also a Sandy Hook truther. I hear him periodically on a Boston based podcast I listen to, he's a great value brand Alex Jones. Thankfully there are sane people out there speaking up for Schiano.

He's been ranked one time at the end of a college football season in his life. He wasn't eligible for the job, but there's a reason why ppl hate him and he's been out of work.

Also, schiano wasn't even close to .500 in the big east while he was at Rutgers. You can't hire that guy if you are the UT AD and Currie is a rough ridin' idiot for not knowing that. this went about as well as anyone could've predicted.

Well, the one thing that we can all agree on here is that John Currie is probably mumped, regardless of any of our thoughts on whether this is ethically right or wrong.  He's probably mumped.

This is all truth. I tried to justify Schiano for football reasons last year and earlier today, I was dead wrong for that and Currie should have done better.

The enabler stuff is bullshit.

Yeah absolutely, but the UT fans saw their opening and took it. Again I feel like I could've predicted this if someone would've told me five days ago that schiano would've been the guy. Not the part about them getting Currie to back out of the deal, but the overall reaction and them using the pedophile stuff absolutely. That's where Currie is a dumbass though. He doesn't get it. He just doesn't. There is a disconnect with him and his job and what it is that he's actually getting paid to do. He won't be there in five years. crap he might not even be there in five weeks.

I'm seeing more and more #vols talking about how Schiano sucks at football as opposed to or at least in addition to Sandusky things.

The whole thing was just bad, and it wasn't clearly well planned out by the University of Tennessee Administration and/or John Currie, whoever did this.

I'm trying to think of this through as a rational post.  Looking at Schiano, yes, there is that allegations of the Sandusky situation.  As it was noted, it was coming from a 3rd hand source (McQueary) in court, which is hearsay, and no evidence to really support that claim, and Schiano has denied this.  However, the PSU stuff is still pretty fresh considering that process is still being played out with the McQueary defamation case and other stuff that is going on (Baylor rape stuff being the most recent situation, indirectly).  We'll never get the full story of how it exactly played out in Penn State, but anyone who is associated to that, directly or indirectly, is tainted in some peoples eyes.  So I can understand why the folks doesn't want to associate themselves to the Sandusky situation, at all.  It casts a bad light.

So, if we were to remove the Penn State stuff, and look at him as a coach.  There has been well established reports of him being a not so very nice guy during his time in Rutgers and in the NFL.  Granted, he did well in Rutgers, but it has also been noted that his tactic of using satellite camps is banned.  There's also that tweet from TJ Moe that some players who played under him in Rutgers, hated him.  In addition, his career in the NFL was uninspiring and there's that tweet that the NFL players hated his style, and how he treated some NFL players were pretty bad.  The Freeman incident is an example of it as well.  There's also that MRSA thing that happened under his watch.  So I also can understand their reasoning for not wanting to have a "retread" coach, who barely made it successful in Rutgers.

Really, looking at the whole body of work, everything there just casts a bunch of red lights that, somehow, University of Tennessee and/or John just overlooked it.  The Penn State stuff.  The personality that really rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.  It was just a poor judgement call by Tennessee and/or John.

Players hating him shouldn't be considered a bit. The people vocal on twitter about how much players hate him have not people who have played for him, but I've seen multiple tweets from people who played for him having his back. He's a coach there will always be players that love him and hate him.

He was an unmitigated disaster in the NFL though, no doubt about it. He wouldn't be the first college coach to flame out in the NFL and won't be the last.

I sure in the eff hope you don't think this
Quote
“No,” McQueary replied, according to the documents, “only that he had — I can’t remember if it was one night or one morning — but that Greg had come into his office white as a ghost and said he just saw Jerry doing something to a boy in the shower. And that’s it. That’s all he ever told me.”

justifies the bullshit the Tennessee fans are doing or worth ruining the careers of Currie and Schiano.

The DA didn't deem it necessary to get Bradley or Schiano on record, under oath. These people are labeling this guy an enabler to a pedophile all because they didn't want him as a football coach. It's rough ridin' gross, Salem witch and McCarthyism type stuff, people should be outraged but everyone is cool with this because it's funny on twitter.

The problem is, Schiano just submitted a PR move, denied it, and moved on.  If he really felt like he was being defamed, then he should have gone after Mike McQueary.

He didn't.

And this was a bad judgement by Currie.  I would bet you that if said coach was NOT allegedly linked to this scandal, this would have been moot.

Gone after McQueary for what? Retelling a story that was supposedly told to him? What exactly does going after him look like?

There is typically some protection for slander/libel in the context of court proceedings. According to the article the statements were in sealed documents so you could argue they were never intended to be made public.

And I don’t believe it is up to Schiano to bring perjury charges, even though the state clearly did not view the allegations as credible since they would have gone after Schiano as well.

TLDR: MIR is probably right. Not much he could do even if the statement was 100% false.

I do think this whole deal will fall at Currie’s feet and probably rightfully so, but I have to imagine he was receiving significant pressure from somewhere to look at Schiano. If people really believe Currie single handedly ran off Frank for being difficult to work with and potentially violating NCAA rules, I have a VERY hard time believing Currie would insist against everyone else on hiring a guy like Schiano. Makes zero sense.

Maybe he’s just lost his mind, or maybe there is way more to the story.

Currie doesn't (still) understand that at the end of the day, it's actually him working for the fans and the coaches he employs. He's caught up in his job title and thinks it's the other way around. He should have learned his lesson with oscar but didn't. Maybe because it was basketball and not football and maybe because Kansas state has like 1/3 the amount of fans that UT has. I don't know.

The Haslam family (Pilot Oil) runs things in the UT Ath Dept. Jimmy (Cleveland Browns) had previously interviewed Schiano for the Browns and was enamored with him. Many think that Currie was at least in part doing his bidding. Currie apparently ran the hire by a few big boosters and the reaction was negative. Yet he still went ahead with the hire, or tried to do it.

  Which they won’t get. So this will be very fun to watch from the sidelines.

Exactly, absolutely no one that will take that job now will satisfy them.

I'd guess they'll either have to overpay for a completely unproven "up and comer" that's too dumb to turn it down or a really old retread that knows he can get a ton of money on his last stop before disappearing from coaching.

It doesn't matter who they get. They can't trash the new guy even 1/5 as much because it is their actions that caused them to get the new guy. Even if they hate the new guy more than schiano, they have to be somewhat accepting. They won't rally twice.

Did they just single handily blacklist Schiano from any potential FT gigs by blasting him so hard publicly? I'd be a bit tentative to move fwd with him after that. Even if I was Memphis or something.

I find it very difficult to believe that John Currie is doing this complete termination and hire of a FB coach in a vacuum or on his own.

The smart thing for UT to do would be to fire JC today, put his head out on a stake for the media to see -- and summarily blame the whole bumbling and fumbling affair on Currie.

UT Administration doesnt really seem to be able to get much of anything right over the past few years and the blame goes much deeper than JC (although he's not in any way blameless).

No, he's the defensive coordinator at Ohio State University. He has Urban Meyer and Bill Belichick as references. He'll have bigger issues with a closer inspection of what he did at Rutgers. He'll get other offers but nothing as "good" as Tennessee.

Yeah, this is exactly correct. The most impressive part of all this is their ability to form a circle jerk of group think. I'm sure there were Tennessee alums who were uncomfortable with the attempt to smear this dude. Those people were either shouted down or didn't feel comfortable speaking up.

They'll do whatever they're told to do and their band leader profits from outrage so it shouldn't be hard to see where this ends up. After they moved on from Gruden it seems like the group now has their sights set on Campbell.

Well if he did, he absolutely didn't, he should have been fired yesterday. I don't think he did that though, his history doesn't indicate he'd do that. The Frank stuff was absolutely a coordinated effort between him and the guy this board called the animal. In retrospect it looks like he had some money support from the Ice and Johnson families for hiring oscar, that money for the BTF came in pretty quickly after Frank was gone.

I doubt UT will pay for anything based on the memorandum of understanding in place between them and Schiano. The point of the memo is to not be a legally binding agreement, but instead a basis from which to proceed. Usually the first sentence in a MOU says something to the effect of "...this is not a legally binding agreement..."

I haven't done any research but what interests me is the question of what liability UT may have for the rock writings which were clearly inaccurate and defaming. UT will argue that the rock is an element of free speech and they have no control over it (those pesky students did it). The question is going to be should they have had control and could they have taken control of it sooner so as to not be ruinous to Schiano's future.

Campbell had some nice wins but goddam he's 7-5 this year.

While he was 7-5, his coaching history supports the winner aspect.  He coached for Toledo and was consistently winning there.

2011 Toledo 1–0 (interim)
2012 Toledo 9–4 (6–2 Conference)
2013 Toledo 7–5 (5–3 Conference)
2014 Toledo 9–4 (7–1 Conference)
2015 Toledo 9–2 (6–2 Conference)

Lets not forget that Iowa State in his first year was 3-9 (2-7 conference play) before improving to 7-5 (5-4 conference play).  On top of that, they did upset two Top 25 teams and gave the 3rd one a run for their money.

Granted, I can see the 1-4 ending a bad taste, but the other side is that he only has been here two years, and still is filling out his roster with his own type of players/recruits.

Iowa State's roster is still a mess, he really did a good job with this roster. Unlike Schiano and Butch, Campbell seems to not polarizing but outside of this I do feel like Schiano and Campbell are similar styled coaches. Both rely on defense and run heavy offenses. Both seem to be good recruiters and have the ability to put together a good staff. Campbell is pretty big on religion which would play well with the UT fan base too. They're similar but I do think Campbell is a better personality fit.

I doesn't seem like they're getting him either though, so maybe on to Whitten :dunno:

That's fair, but I wouldn't put him on the Butch Jones label yet, because I didn't see anything that warrants that merit, albeit a thinner resume. 

Schiano winning % = .503
Campbell winning % = .608

Campbell also performed better in conference record as well in terms of winning percentage.

There seems to be a little bit of scuttlebutt that the AFCA is not happy with what happened yesterday. Also worth noting that Schiano is a Jimmy Sexton client and if you count Schiano that's four straight Sexton clients Tennessee has fired. If they piss the AFCA and Jimmy Sexton off they may need a NFL player to fill that vacancy.

Rutgers was one of the worst programs in the country when Schiano went there. They had likely replaced K-State by that point as the worst FBS program in the history of college football with one bowl appearance in their history. Granted, they had only moved from being an Independent to the Big East in the early 90s. He had arguably their best season ever and maybe their best stretch of football ever. Again, his Rutgers stretch is very similar to what Mangino did at KU, minus getting pushed out for being too tough on players.

They had likely replaced K-State by that point as the worst FBS program in the history of college football with one bowl appearance in their history. Granted, they had only moved from being an Independent to the Big East in the early 90s. He had arguably their best season ever and maybe their best stretch of football ever. Again, his Rutgers stretch is very similar to what Mangino did at KU, minus getting pushed out for being too tough on players.

Agreed.  Do you think the Big East is better, on par, or worse when comparing to the Big 12 during those times when both Mangino and Schiano coached?

Totally agree as well. Now imagine how upset vol fans would be if it was leaked out over the weekend that Currie was in the process of hiring the guy that was fat and got fired at KU a few years ago.

Well, in my opinion, I don't think it would even come close to that, because Mangino has connections to Snyder.  I think that alone disqualifies him (in the eyes of Currie) because it's reasonable to think that if Currie actually did talk to Mangino and offered the job, Mangino may or may not have called Bill to get the scoop (I'm under the assumption that Mangino and Bill are in talking terms, obviously) of what it was like to work for Currie and whatnot.

To be clear, I'm not advocating Schiano as a head coach at Tennessee (nor would I for K-State). I'm just saying the overall winning % point at a school like Rutgers isn't the best talking point. I'd say not maintaining it and the fact that program was starting to falter a bit when he escaped to the NFL is a better justification to not hire him along with all the rumors of how he treats his players.

I don't know, that's pretty subjective, considering that Miami and Virginia Tech (who were kingpins in the Big East) left in 2004 to go to the ACC. 

Ironically, after Miami and VT left the Big East, that's when Schiano started winning against lesser fodders, and they still didn't win a Big East Crown and didn't win a BCS bowl, whereas Mangino had that one season where everything that went well for KU, did.  And Mangino did win a BCS bowl (Orange).

totally agree and don't at all think you were advocating for him. i do think that that schiano's big east win percentage should have kept him out of the running for that job though, in the same way that webers overall big10 win percentage should have kept him out of our bball job. if i was a UT fan, schiano and mangino are the same to me and i can't imagine being ok with either.

When Frank left there was a high donor that bounced around the top 3 on the Ahearn Fund rankings that wanted no public recognition for their money.  Most wouldn't know his name.  The night we hired Weber, I saw a text message from him.  He was given no warning that Frank was leaving & found out from friends with Twitter that oscar was being hired.

I missed this during the mass hysteria.  What was his reaction?

I don't know the guy.  I was with people that regularly sat in his suite & used his court side seats at basketball games.  I read a text to them the day Weber was hired.  It read like he wasn't thrilled he wasn't at least given a heads up.  I don't know much, just giving a small bit of insite into how the Frank/oscar transition happened.

Fair enough.

It was to the point and had some stuff in there that we won't get past for a long time. This hire will have to be a serious one. To be honest I don't know how a coach could trust anyone in the administration right now. The article stated we fired a hall of fame coach with a championship ring. That will be ringing in every potential hires head for years to come. We need to stop being so cheap and pay up if the program is that important. My Vols football helmet hanging on my cubicle wall is now upside down till this crap gets straightened out because our University of Tennessee is under distress.

this is all fair. i think there is also a fair point that schiano shouldn't be a head coach anywhere and is probably a total bad person who covered for a pedophile.

There are a lot of journalist showing that their coaching changes source is Jimmy Sexton & are going overboard to protect his client.  On a scale of 1-10 to defend Schiano they are going to 17.

Yesterday Wetzel tweeted out a statement from a Penn State JoePa appologist trustee on Schiano that was nothing more than a statement to lump JoePa in with Schiano & say they're all innocent except Sandusky himself.

It doesn't matter who they get. They can't trash the new guy even 1/5 as much because it is their actions that caused them to get the new guy. Even if they hate the new guy more than schiano, they have to be somewhat accepting. They won't rally twice.

I'm not saying they'll go into BID mode again.  The article used the word "embrace".  Outside of a few names on a short list, I don't see these zealots embracing anything other than their pitchforks.

Covering up child rape is a serious accusation.  To pin that label on a dude based solely on hearsay, with zero evidence, is incredibly reckless and stupid.

That's not coming from Tennessee.  That's coming from other journalist like Andy Staples & George Schroder.  Tennessee fans using child rape to block a coach they don't want is abhorrent.  I also don't trust journalists like Dan Wetzel tweeting out a statement from a JoePa apologist using this as nothing more than an opportunity to stump for JoePa & impress those JoePa appologist ms who voted them in as a trustee, who are using that statement to support their case.

Isn't Schiano's agent Jimmy Sexton as well?  If so, with these writers who are highly probably associated to Jimmy Sexton, it makes sense that they would go damage control/defense in Schiano.  They're not going to trash their own agent's client as well, or they risk pissing him off.

On to Gundy:

Only way he would probably take it if he is either:

1) Getting tired of Boone Pickens, regardless of the Currie situation

or

2) Currie is getting fired

Absolutely.  This might work out best for Gundy as we all said that Tennessee is a 2nd tier and OSU is 2nd tier in the Big 12, in my opinion.

If OSU is 2nd tier in the Big 12 then first tier consists only of OU. Gundy has a great job. I only see him jumping to Tennessee if he is thinking about retiring and wants to fleece those guys with a ridiculously big contract with a stupidly large guaranteed portion. Then he can just coast.

It's hard to tell. He's saying that Jimmy Haslam made him offer Schiano. A bold move Cotton since Jimmy is the one who runs things (for now).

Coincidently, Jimmy Haslam was personally implicated in court today with regard to the Pilot Oil scandal (stealing money from companies buying gas from them).

Jimmy Sexton isn't influencing reporting, that's completely insulting to actual real life journalists.

if you don't think that fact that jimmy sexton is also the agent for journalists like pete thamel etc and that influences what he and others who share sexton as an agent write, then I'm not sure what to say. of course it influences what they write. that should just be accepted as fact by everyone and then we move on.

I don't know if Jimmy Sexton represents any of these cfb journos or not, I'm sure he has some of the ex-players. Jimmy Sexton may very well be sending people out to do whatever, but they aren't making up facts, and there are certainly plenty of reporters who aren't tied to Sexton retelling what everyone should have known with regard to Schiano and Penn State.

Yeah, they're second tier, the third tier comprises KU and Baylor. There are six schools in the conference that comprises the middle class.

This would not surprise me, now that I think about it after that went down.  I was thinking to myself "Why in the world would he hire Schiano after the PSU stuff and his history in the NFL?"  It just doesn't make sense.

Case in point, we all know that Currie ran a very active compliance department when he was here, and he would had his staff find stuff, real or imagined.  Think of the receipt thing that got one of our players suspended.  There's also some others that I'm just forgetting at the moment.

I also have to believe that he was worried about Frank Martin might do something stupid in terms of compliance (along with that I'm sure he just hates him) so tried to find ways to get rid of him.  And he hired oscar Weber, who has no history of being involved in any kind of scandals or afoul with the NCAA.

Now he decides to get Schiano?  Something just doesn't add up right, and it has to be someone who is very powerful.

Reading really isnt the general public's strong suit. At risk of coming off as defending MIR, which I'd never do  :), I'd challenge folks to do their research on Schiano before making such claims.
Schiano might be an a-hole (asking defense to hit QBs Manning in victory formation, leaking drug test results of players) but the whole connection with Schiano to the PSU stuff is stupid and extremely thin.

Well you need to read it closer, It's not McQueary's word against Schiano's. McQueary said that Tom Bradley said that Schiano told Bradley that he saw Sandusky in the shower with a kid. That means no person in that conversion had first hand knowledge of anything that Schiano saw or didn't see. If Schiano said, "that's not what I said." McQueary can't say "Yes you did" because he has no rough ridin' clue as to what Schiano said. As a matter of fact the two never had a conversation about Sandusky. I'm not sure it's on the record that they've had a conversation about anything, ever.

Let's play this game. Dlew told me that pissclams told him that Rusty saw Ell Roberson rape a girl in Scottsdale Arizona but didn't do anything about it. It would be rough ridin' ridiculous to stick you with the tag of rape enabler simply based on that.

Because McQueary only mentioned this in an affidavit in his lawsuit against Penn State. I read that's the only time Schiano was ever mentioned on the record in the entire scandal.

It's also worth noting that McQueary accused Schiano, third hand, not under oath, of exactly what McQueary was accused of and he did it trying to get money. It's the the thinnest of thin.

I'd still put my money on Tee Martin as the mix of willing to take the job and get the fans to acquiesce.  Its a super lazy hire though.  Currie'll always be the one that preferred Schiano and even Tee Martin's success will hardly help him.

I am told that UT AD John Currie made an offer to Jeff Brohm that Brohm accepted. Currie then asked the chancellor to approve the offer — buyout included — and chancellor said no. So Currie went back to Brohm with lesser offer and Brohm said no. So here we are.

The list continues to grow...

Quote
The latest target to emerge in Tennessee's head coaching search is NC State's Dave Doeren, and sources told ESPN the two sides are scheduled to have discussions about the Vols' job.

After Mike Gundy decided to stay at Oklahoma State on Tuesday, Tennessee athletic director John Currie shifted his focus to Purdue's Jeff Brohm. The two had discussions about the job, but no deal was reached and Tennessee has moved on from Brohm to Doeren.

The Vols also reached out to Duke's David Cutcliffe about the job earlier in the week, but Cutcliffe told Tennessee officials he intended to finish his coaching career at Duke.

Tennessee officials have also had talks with SMU coach Chad Morris and Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, as they try to put an end to a whirlwind coaching search to replace Butch Jones, fired Nov. 12.

That search seemingly ended with Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano on Sunday, but that deal was nixed after fans and state politicians expressed their outrage.

Doeren, in his fifth season at N.C. State, was also in the running for the Ole Miss head job, but the Rebels promoted interim coach Matt Luke to be full-time head coach.

After canning a coach that went 10-3, and played for a natty two years before, the 'skers rolled up in Husker One expecting to take Nutt with them.  He declined and they eventually ended up with Bill "Gold Coin" Callahan.

OMAHA, Neb. -- Long known as a bastion of coaching
stability, Nebraska hasn't been able to find anyone to take over
its football program.

Where most schools go only a few days between the departure of a
coach and the arrival of a new one, Nebraska athletic director
Steve Pederson on Thursday began the 40th day of his search for
Frank Solich's successor.

"Had (Nutt) gotten on that plane and gone to Lincoln (Neb.) Jan. 2, the job was his," Sexton told Bo Mattingly, host of "The Trainwreck Show" on ESPN Radio 1190 AM, Friday afternoon. "In fact, there were even discussions about press conferences (announcing Nutt's hiring) the next day.

I think there are a lot of coaches that actually do not want to go to the SEC right now... with the dominance that Alabama has laid down on that league a lot of good coaches just feel there is no chance for them to win especially with Saban most likely not going any where any time soon. With coaches only being given 2-3 years now to provide DRASTIC results (conference championships mixed in with CFB playoff potential) or get canned and banished from head coaching forever for a P5 team, they want to make sure they are setting themselves up for a good 6+ years. Why would any decent coach want to do that unless it was their dream job (alma mater, etc.). Chip Kelly had his choice of Florida, UT, and UCLA and he chose the Pac12 school. Multiple coaches have turned down $6+ mill a year for 5+ years to stay where they are.

Mix that in with how UT fans have treated their past few coaches as well as Curries poor reputation with coaches and his new reputation as being publicly incompetent. UT may just have to start looking at the local high schools to find a coach. A coach is already set up to fail/lose by going to UT right now and it is quite sad.

First, Currie continues to show his incompetence in the people management side of being AD and hiring a coach. Brutal. This is actually making me think I'm glad he got oscar when he did, it might have been much worse.

2nd, those fans are crazy. It's like watching Nebraska fans on crack.

Quote
What we are left with is two scenarios and they probably intersect in some form or fashion:

John Currie is so incompetent or unaware of his environment that he decided not to get the approval from his boss before he presented Brohm with the terms.
OR
Beverly Davenport is a micromanaging, tone-deaf, and incompetent evaluator when it comes to a hiring a coach.

My money is on both. The Gruesome Twosome have absolutely derailed this program's chance of recovering any momentum back from a 4-8 season. Whatever it is - lack of communication, lack of experience, or simply lack of intelligence - this administration has shown in a very short time that they are unable to run this program at a high level.

Now the program is left scattered, viewed as a national laughingstock and a program that can't get out of its own way. At least we know where to place the blame.

I don't see how Davenport and Currie survive, but with Jimmy Haslam running things it would not surprise me to see them stick around. Haslam is a whole other story for another time.

I guess the bright side is the fact that we don't have to wait five years to find out how shitty these two would be at their jobs like we did with Butch. At this point, you have to wonder, if we would have known how bad these two were - would we have been so ready to fire Butch? It's a question worth asking, but hindsight is 20/20.

And now, as our eyes have been opened once again, we get the privilege of watching this program burn with perfect clarity.

Yeah, I wanted to say it, but it's nothing like it. Currie got what he wanted real quick and it was too late for us to complain. If you want to compare the Currie hate, that's fair, but I'd put it on the Chancellor today before Currie.

Remember this elongated fantrum started when butch didn't get fired quickly enough for their liking. Someone tried to orchestrate an empty seat protest at Neyland Stadium for the shitty late season noncon all those bubbas play. Some radio guy asked that people give his radio station unused tickets so disadvantaged families could go, they then protested that dude.

My guess is guys like Jeff Brohm are also hitting him with the complete control demand after hearing about JC's rep and seeing this crap show.

The only coach outside of the UTenn fam that will take this job is a desperate coach - Doren might be that since the AD that hired him is likely to retire in 2019 but I wouldn't bet on Currie lasting that long at UTenn.

I agree.   I don't blame vol fans for lashing out about schiano because they think he's a bad coach.  Many of us here (myself included) did the same thing with oscar.

You don't think Currie deserves any blame here? Tennessee has had sex scandal issues of their own and there are plenty of coaches with records similar to Schiano that haven't been connected in any way to Sandusky. It's just a tone deaf/idiotic move by Currie, whether or not Schiano deserved to be blamed for allowing Sandusky to continue doing what he was doing.

You don't think Currie deserves any blame here? Tennessee has had sex scandal issues of their own and there are plenty of coaches with records similar to Schiano that haven't been connected in any way to Sandusky. It's just a tone deaf/idiotic move by Currie, whether or not Schiano deserved to be blamed for allowing Sandusky to continue doing what he was doing.
It's all on Currie and Haslam (who made the call imo).

Once he's our coach, he's linked to us. We don't want to be associated with the Ped Staters in any respect. In a vacuum, he's also not a great coach. Thirdly, his name didn't really come out until Sunday morning. They tried to slide that hire by us, and it failed.

So, take your pick as to why you don't want him (1 and 2 above). We can all wait for the next school that offers the HC job to Schiano. Don't hold your breath.

Yep.  Nobody is saying that Currie would've made a great hire if it did turn out to be Schiano.  In that respect, yes, Currie deserves blame for trying to hire a lousy coach. 

But guess what, ADs do that crap all the time without fans conjuring up "he was on 'pedo state's [ :facepalm: ] staff!"

In other words, you can criticize a coach or a hire without pinning the candidate as a pedophile-enabler.  I feel like I'm in lala-land having to explain this.

I get it. And Currie could have chosen to hire a coach with a similar resume that wasn't connected to Penn State in any way. It was a dumb move regardless of the fan reaction.

Do you think a program of Tennessee's stature will hire Schiano in the next couple of years?

No, no.  East Tennessee is full of upland aboriginal type white people like West Virginia who rarely see a black person not in an athletic uniform.

UT ran off Cuonzo Martin with racial slurs and taunting even after he took them to the S16 a few years back.

Incorrect. Cuonzo underperformed for 2 1/2 years. Fans started a petition to bring back Pearl (which they should have). Pearl loves UT. He hung around here for 3 years waiting for the job to come open again.

The petition lit a fire under Cuonzo's ass. They made it to the sweet 16. After that, I think he flirted with Marquette(?) and then left for Cal.

Holy crap.  Tennessee fan credits a petition for Martin's success.  He literally believes that a guy who grew up in East St. Louis got "a fire lit under his ass" as a result of a bunch of college kids signing a letter online.  A man who survived non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was scared straight by a petition. 

How did oscar Pearl v. 2.0 work out, by the way?  I'm assuming Tennessee fans in their infinite wisdom have been vindicated by his brilliant success and lack of recidivism.

Sounds like a decent chance that happens...

Quote
However this whole deal is complicated by the dynamic swirling around within UT’s leadership. We’ve heard from multiple sources there is a lot of in-fighting, finger-pointing and back-stabbing taking place amongst Tennessee brass. As SI reported earlier this week, there is a growing faction at Tennessee pushing to get Currie removed. Former Vols head coach Phil Fulmer is said to be one of those battling with Currie and that could muck up the process to reel in Leach.

Quote
A source told SI earlier this week that even though Currie is very intrigued with Leach, the fact that he has sued an employer before gives them pause.

The fact that Currie was about to hire Leach when he was fired will be something great for their fans to recall when their next coach is sucking ass.

If these media dudes would stop showing production assistants their flaccid dicks this story should be on every network morning show. I need Robin Roberts interviewing a weepy but defiant John Currie on GMA next week, name names, tell where the bodies are.

He's also definitely going to testify for Greg Schiano in that inevitable lawsuit, right?

I've crap on Currie a lot this week, but I think he's about 33% of the problem there.
The Haslams have been the problem for a long time. They hired Currie to be their puppet. Currie went rogue last night and nobody knew where he was.

The Fulmer-Majors and especially the Fulmer-Kiffin rift also plays into the coming hire. Highly doubtful that Kiffin gets a second chance if Fulmer is made AD.

Tennessee is mumped. You’re done with Currie but you’re stuck with Fulmer, Haslam (who thinks of himself as part of the AD), the rest of their athletic department, batshit BOT, and absurd fans. That athletic department is toxic and will undoubtedly result in more trash football.

Currie didnt go Rogue. He got called home by Bev and Haslam -- and Currie was quiet the whole way with his tail between his legs.
My prediction is Fulmer doesnt become AD, he just finds the next coach (if even that).

Yeah. That was a lame excuse for the most part and anyone who reads past a headline gets it. Also, it’s hilarious how unrealistic and entitled Tennessee fans are acting. I mean, you’ve had the last THREE of your coaches (!!!) blow up in your face, yet you act like you deserve Bear Bryant. Btw, I never understood the Jon Gruden myopia, and a lot of people feel that way. I mean my god, the guy hasn’t even been a coach for over a decade.

Sure, I get that. The mob was definitely over the top with it though, considering how little involvement he had (if at all). I don’t have a dog in the Greg Schiano fight at all; zero opinion on the guy either way, really. But it was very transparent where Vol fans’ real priorities were with that.

some of us (myself included) were unimpressed with the flimsy pedophilia reasoning for criticizing the potential schiano hire.

Ok, long story short... Mike McQueary testified under oath that Schiano saw something. Schiano was never deposed but was asked and denied the claim that he saw anything. You've got one guy testifying under oath, under possible penalty of perjury and the other guy who was never sworn in who denied it. Whether or not Schiano truly saw anything or not none of us will probably ever know for sure. The point is doubt was cast against his character and it's become questionable at best. I personally was not among the group either on campus or online who was actively spreading word.



You guys think you are Bama, but really you're more like Vanderbilt. Not sure what the confusion is  :dunno:

No, we do not think we're Bama but we're historically a prominent and passionate, D1, SEC football school that pulls in enough money to be in the mix for proven coaches. The real problem Tennessee fans have now are with the administration and one booster in particular, Jimmy Haslam. This guy has dictatorship like control over our program and we're done with it. Haslam has a say in every major decision that UT makes. He gets to hand pick his administration(Beverly Davenport, John Currie, Reid Sigmon) and these people are basically his yes men. UT fans didn't want John Currie, we had zero input into that. That was all Haslam. Because Haslam doesn't know what he's doing(which is woefully evident by his continued ramming into the ground of the Cleveland Browns) he wouldn't know what a good head football coach was if one hit him upside the head. We are frustrated with losing and being a down program and that fool is perpetuating it by trying to cram through his friends and acquaintances simply because that's what he wants and he's got his daddy's money to do it.

Spend less time reading this board and maybe read just one article on the McQueary deposition.
I prefer a version of the truth that fits my narrative.

And that’s why people talk crap on Vols fans. You guys were never truly interested in Schiano’s connection to the Sandusky scandal, you just needed an excuse to crucify a guy who wasn’t Jon Gruden.

Btw, while you’re here, run down for me why everyone thought Gruden was the guy. (I don’t follow nfl enough to truly understand it.)

Ok, The Gruden thing is insanity. Everyone DIDN'T think Gruden was actually the guy it was a select delusional few that actually did. The reason it blew up in the media is because nobody definitively said otherwise on either side to shoot down the rumors. Gruden never openly said he wasn't coming to TN, his latest quote was "never say never". John Currie or someone else in UT's administration could have shot down those rumors before they exploded but chose not to. Ultimately that decision probably hurt him. Here is the real kicker though, this isn't the first time the Grumor nonsense has occurred. The whole Gruden thing played out for the first time back in 2012 during the coaching search that would ultimately hire Butch Jones. Naturally everyone that was gullible and hopeful that Gruden would take the job was heartbroken and devastated when it didn't pan out. You'd think people would have learned from the first time around but apparently not so round two was birthed and it drew even more interest.

Lol! That's another small faction of misinformed fans among Volnation, Peyton Manning's forehead becoming the head coach at TN or Peyton Manning himself. The man is a legend but he has no interest in becoming the head coach at TN. Why risk possibly tainting your legacy by becoming the head coach of TN where it "might" work out? Realistically if he wanted to coach he'd could probably succeed as a decent OC. He'd obviously be an excellent QB coach as well(of which he's technically already been with the QB camps that he runs). Again though, he's not interested.

The best part of all of this is the victors then turning the sword on themselves.

The fact that so many Vol fans believe that UT is some kind of elite football program is pretty comical.   UT hasn't done crap in 20 years.

Who wants to go work at a school that literally eats their own at the drop of a hat?  Nobody beyond mediocrity, that's who.

Plus, the whole coaching search was so John Currie, I can just see that little weirdo telling himself he had this over and and over.

TU got a int return to make the first half look respectable and then a late 4Q TD run to close it to within two TD's but it was a total beatdown from start to finish.

The Johnny-Phil rivalry has been boiling for 25 years. It's really something to behold. Johnny supporters will always think that Phil stabbed him in the back in 1992 and kicked a man while he was down.

Phil had an unprecedented run in the 90s and won a MNC. He lost the 2001 SEC championship game to a backup QB. His teams after that underperformed. We knew it was over when he lost to Vandy in 2005. He stubbornly held on for 3 more years, but Phil supporters will always say that he was done wrong.

I actually admire the UT fans for doing that.  I wish that it didn't have to have involve the Penn State stuff, but oh well.

IIRC, media types had speculated that Petrino had some sort of a man-to-man promise to Tom Zurich, the Louisville AD, that he wouldn't eff him over again.

Quote
If suspended University of Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich never returns to his job, head football coach Bobby Petrino could save millions of dollars should he leave Louisville before his contract expires.

That's because Petrino's employment contract specifies that he has to pay a penalty if he leaves the Cardinals. The amount varies over time. This year, it would cost him $8 million. In 2023, the final year of the deal, the bill would be $5 million.


But there's a catch: The penalty drops by half if Jurich is not the athletic director.

I like Clay's insights here, but I think Schiano to KSU was a stretch. JC was just haslams puppet on that one.

Interesting to hear of the Peyton Manning theory on franchise ownership as well.

FTR, I am not a fan of Clay but he does bring good hot takes on the UT dumpster fire.

Manning's image was tarnished quite a bit in the last 10 days. He had to call other Vol players to inform them about (and sell them on) the potential Schiano hire. Speculation is that he is aligning himself with the also tarnished Haslams in order to get into NFL franchise ownership down the road.

Many were hoping that the golden boy would be the one to lead us out of the wilderness.

0% chance Currie was going to hire Schiano at K-State or at least had it preplanned. Schiano had just been DC for 1 year at OSU and was out of coaching for 3 years before that

One of the reasons I didn't listen is that he's lied/been wrong about some of this Tennessee stuff more than once, he has no credibility. He's just a fan that has some donors as sources. There is no way possible he could tie Schiano and K-State with any certainty, he's guessing. It never got close to that point here, if it did the Capital-Journal would have uncovered something about him when their open records request was honored.

He's a loudmouth, dipshit, liar and I'd love to tell him so but he'd get hard from the attention.

Is he banking on hiring a hearing impaired illiterate? Their ceiling is Lane, they will be hiring either Tee Martin or one of the coaches I have on my K-State list in one of the Sean threads.

What booster let Currie take his plane all over?

Moreover, per sources, UT has initiated the process to dispatch Currie with cause on the heels of insubordination claims. Among the most egregious of the claims, per multiple sources including some in the legal community and on the Tennessee campus, when urged to return home last week as the search dissolved into a national punchline, Currie instead opted to utilize the private aircraft of a Kansas State booster to continue trying to find Butch Jones’ replacement.

“That’s why no one knew where he was after he left (being turned down by N.C. State head coach Dave Doeren,” a source explained.

Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about it.  The situation doesn't feel "right" to me.  Like we shouldn't have well placed members of our community messing around in the internal workings of another AD, especially something like a coaching search where things can get nasty (ie Tennessee's crap show). 
Also I'm not sure what you mean by the annual vigil on the decision.  Not trying to be snarky, mind is not working right now with a headache.
