Only coach I can think of is the Eagles te coach cuz I know he’s been at Tenn before but I could be wrong
Jason Michael - from Southern / Western KY (played ball at WKU), actually did two coaching stints with UT under Fulmer (one as a GA and then in 2008 as TE coach), had a stop with the Titans as OC/TE coach, currently with the Eagles as TE coach.

Has been very productive at every stop along the way...would be a GREAT hire at TE for Heupel.
Biggest question is would he leave an organization like the Eagles who seem to be on the upswing and in title contention for the near future to return to the college game?
That said, since we are almost a month past the end of the season and no one has been hired, could Heupel be looking at NFL coaches?

I think Heupel is pretty meticulous in finding a fit. I still think Littrell is the most likely guy if a few things can be worked out. Worse case is we promote someone on the staff currently.

Only other TE coach in the NFL that has been at UT is Kevin Koger from the Chargers. He was a GA in 2015 under Butch.

I am not sure the worse would be to promote someone from the staff. I do not have enough information about the qualifications of those on the staff who may be a good hire. Again, I think CJH will hire the person who he feels like will do best job. I think he did a pretty good job in hiring the new OC and WR coaches.

I hear the speculation that it isn’t Faris due to it not being announced yet, but I believe that move could very well be on the table because we still have (the traditional) NSD coming up in February and maybe he doesn’t want to ditch Chip Kelly before that’s done.
