Tennessee fans are holding an actual protest over Greg Schiano rumors

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasts UT over Greg Schiano reports

"Our Tennessee standards mean something, and a Greg Schiano hire would be anathema to all that our University and our community stand for", tweeted Eddie Smith, representative of the 13th District in Knoxville. The Volunteers then lost their final two games to finish 4-8 overall and 0-8 in the conference.

First-year Tennessee athletic director John Currie fired fifth-year coach Butch Jones on November 12 with two games still remaining on the scheduled and launched a nationwide search for Jones' replacement. In 2006, Schiano went 11-2 at Rutgers and won numerous national coach of the year awards.

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.

Schiano is now assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Ohio State.

Was Schiano being considered throughout the coaching search?

While Schiano became a punchline for his tenure in the National Football League, he is the only coach to have legitimate success at Rutgers recently, which is quite the feat, and he always overperformed as a recruiter while in Piscataway. From there, he worked for the Chicago Bears and as the defensive coordinator for the University of Miami before accepting the head coaching job at Rutgers.

This is a developing story.
