The odds on an unstable Tennessee coaching situation
Vols plagued by a decade plus of instability
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Neyland Stadium on the University of Tennessee campus, once home to General Neyland, a name synonymous with stability and strength. You know the same can be said the former head coaches Johnny Majors and Phillip Fulmer, a common denominator says our media partner Chris Low of espn.com.
You tal about instability, well that word is not exclusive to Tennessee. Eight of the 14 SEC head coaches who attended the SEC football preseason media days in July of 2019 have since been fired. Along those lines, six of those coaches debuted in 2018. Four of them have been fired, Chad Morris, Joe Moorehead, Matt Luke and of course Jeremy Pruitt at Tennessee.
As for those who would possibly be Tennessee’s next head football coach, here are the odds on who might get the job according to according to SportsBetting.ag and yes, they’ve got Jon Gruden on the list:
Jamey Chadwell +350
Billy Napier +400
Hugh Freeze +450
Bill Clark +500
Luke Fickel +500
Doug Marrone +600
Jim Caldwell +600
Kevin Steele +700
Tom Herman +700
Lane Kiffin +800
Guz Malzahn +1000
Peyton Manning +3300
Jon Gruden +5000
Before any of this can happen, the University must first hire a new Director of Athletics with coaching legend Phillip Fulmer retiring. With the help of a search firm, that process is already underway.
