After watching the interview, I'm on board. If we're going to take a chance on someone, I'd rather have it be a Tennessee guy.

This situation is like the squid leaving Memphis last year to coach Kentucky. Memphis' AD said he was going to make a splash and hire a big name coach. Ended up promoting Pastner and now they have the number one recruiting class for 2010. Sometimes the right move is promoting from within. I really don't see a better option out there for Tennessee. Promote Kippy to HC, LT to DC, Jim Chaney OC, keep Cregg, Reaves, Garza, and hire Rodney Garner for recruiting coordinator (LONG shot). Then Kippy will fill out the staff nicely with some good hires.

Yea at this point this is the only hire I would be semi ok with, depending on what kind of staff he could bring in would go a long way.

Bring Garner in as DL coach and a raise and hes headed in the right direction.

Give Kippy Brown a year and see how he does. If he's promising then you can keep him, if he doesn't then look at a big name after the season at a time a coach can leave his program at the proper time.

LT as a DC is laughable. Hes not a DC, period. Keep him on as LB coach thats it.

Get rid of Reaves. His loyalty is to the prick and we dont need him here.

Richard Bisaccia as RB / ST coach, if hes still interested.

i'm OK with kippy

IF

he has a stellar support staff. maybe rodney garner in some capacity, maybe mike leach as OC, keep cheney et al.

he certainly has a way of presenting himself in a great way, not coming across like a certain not to be named loudmouthed punk. plus he is from the great state of TN and has a coaching history at UT.
