Meyer: Vols Have Contacted Schiano About Head Coaching Job

Meyer: Vols Have Contacted Schiano About Head Coaching Job

Schiano has previous head coaching experience, having coached in the National Football League for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and at the college level for Rutgers.

Greg Schiano is reportedly "close" to finalizing a deal to become the new Tennessee head football coach.

Tennessee officials hoped to announce the hiring of Schiano Sunday afternoon. Now he'll try his hand against a new Volunteers head man. Ohio State ranked No. 3 in scoring defense last season with Schiano as co-coordinator and is No. 8 in total defense this year.




Tennessee is seeking a new coach after the November 12 firing of Butch Jones, who went 34-27 overall and 14-24 in Southeastern Conference competition in five seasons.

Tennessee (4-8, 0-8 SEC) ended its season Saturday with a 42-24 loss to Vanderbilt. He went 68-67 with Rutgers, 49-28 his final six season, jumpstarting a languishing program.

Prior to joining the Bucs, Schiano was Rutgers' head coach, leading the Scarlet Knights to their best sustained run of success in the program's recent history. He had been out of coaching since 2013, after he was sacked by the Buccaneers following an 11-21 tenure in two seasons. He had a 34-27 record in five seasons at Tennessee.
