    Post your coaching pick

    His overall record was horrible - no question about that. But are you disagreeing that our offense (Dooley's final year) was about the only thing worth watching ever since Fulmer was fired? I can't think of anything else (any other unit) that more resembled what we used to see back during the...

    Post your coaching pick

    I disagree. Dooley was the only coach after the Fulmer years who built at least one elite unit while he was at UT. Our offense during his last year was definitely elite - I think statistically one of the best we ever had. Chaney and Pittman were hugely important for that success, but I give...

    Tony Elliott Appears To Be a Target

    I don't think there was anything wrong with the Pruitt hire. He was a highly successful DC in multiple top programs in the country for a while and it was logical to give someone like that a shot (even at Tennessee - did not have to be Memphis). Just because he did not work out it was not...

    Tony Elliott Appears To Be a Target

    Didn't Pruitt have a top 5 class (even as high as #2 at one point) within last 6 months or so?

    Tony Elliott Appears To Be a Target

    Can you think of something Texas fan base did that is crazier than Volnation firing a new coach before he even landed in Knoxville (it was the correct move by Volnation by the way). :cool:

    If the new system is an RPO

    It would have to be the sidelines because they could not fit them in the booth.

    If the new system is an RPO

    You should know this is the latest and greatest iteration of the strategy Volnation uses to run the search for new coach - we decide on the offense we want to see and that shift our focus to pressuring whoever is actually doing the official search to back into some coach that may be a good fit...

    Hearing N865UT spotted a looong way from home

    + Kiffin to fix him like Crompton?

    The Lane Kiffin Thread

    I mostly agree but I think the main issue is the talent these types of coaches have at their disposal. Chavis did a great job at LSU as well when he had the talent (that was not that long ago). We never saw what Monte could really do because our talent on the defense was a joke during that year...

    The Lane Kiffin Thread

    He is apparently still working for Lane - according to wikipedia employed as player personnel analyst at Ole Miss.

    The Lane Kiffin Thread

    His father Monte Kiffin was the DC. In my opinion that did not work out that great (given he was a famous DC with many years in NFL expectations were very high).

    Josh McDaniels rumor

    If our new AD really wants to make a statement by going into NFL how about bring in Gruden. Even if that miracle somehow happened who knows how it would eventually work out - but Volnation would at least finally scratch that itch.

    Basillo: Lane Kiffin wants to come home

    Yes, but our new AD will probably not want to risk his own career suicide by bringing Kiffin back to Knoxville.

    Why Herman was fired at Texas

    Yes and thankfully we are much better and more mature up here. At our (real) UT the great Volnation fires new coaches before they even arrive to Knoxville (which by the way was the right call since the university officials in charge of the process did not do their job).

    Basillo: Lane Kiffin wants to come home

    After listening to Dany White's conference and Q&A I don't think Kiffin will be a candidate. Danny White said he wants someone he can completely trust and be on the same page with - Kiffin may be a great coach but I don't see how he can be trusted (especially after what happened with him the...
