Meyer: Vols Have Contacted Schiano About Head Coaching Job”

The Tennessee Volunteers have reportedly finalized a deal that would put Ohio State Buckeyes defensive coordinator Greg Schiano as the new head coach.

Wolken cites that a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports that Tennessee officials were hoping to be in position to announce the hire on Sunday afternoon. Ohio State ranked No. 3 in scoring defense last season with Schiano as co-coordinator and is No. 8 in total defense this year.

The Volunteers fired Butch Jones on November 12, the day after they lost 50-17 at Missouri to fall to 0-6 in SEC play. Schiano, who is now an assistant coach at Ohio State, has not been a head coach since he was sacked by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in 2013.

During his 11 season tenure as the leader of the Scarlett Knights, Schiano managed to produced six winning seasons. Prior to that, the Volunteers had put up exactly one losing season in the past two decades.

Naturally, this meant that head coach Butch Jones was out on his ass before the season even ended, replaced by interim coach and MI failure Brady Hoke.

Tennessee (4-8, 0-8 SEC) ended its season Saturday with a 42-24 loss to Vanderbilt. He had a 34-27 record in five seasons at Tennessee.
