Tennessee Dumpster Fire: Vols Fire AD John Currie in Midst of Coach Search


How many times it this we've reported on the Dumpster Fire known as the University of Tennessee??

The latest news from Knoxville---Athletic Director John Currie, the guy most blame for the embarrassment known as their search for a football head coach---is fired....

It was first reported by Ms. Greene---a Sports Reporter at the Knoxville CBS-TV affiliate....

But like, well, pretty much everything involved with this mess---Currie's departure had some backstory to it....and to the surprise---of well, nobody following the mis-adventures here, it involved backstabbing....

Currie, for those of you unaware of this mess--is the guy who went to Columbus, Ohio less than a week ago (seems like forever) to offer and bring back his choice for a Head Football Coach to replace Butch Jones.

That coach---Greg Schiano, the Defensive Coordinator at Ohio State and former Head Coach with Tampa Bay in the NFL and Rutgers...was resoundly booed (among other things) by the delusional Tennessee fanbase who essentially showed up at Currie's door with fire and pitchforks, threatening and eventually torpedoing the hire.

Since that fiasco, Currie has been spanning the globe, speaking to in no particular order, Dave Doreen of North Carolina State, Mike Leach of Washington State, David Cutcliffe of Duke, Jeff Brohm of Purdue. Thus far all but Leach said "Um, thanks, but no thanks".....Currie met with Leach Thursday night in Los Angeles and the Carousel started saying Leach would be the guy to say yes.

Not any more......

This whole Dumpster Fire mess as of today (Friday)--now leaves the Vowels with a bigger hole. Established coaches won't go near the fire--because the run the risk of being run out of town by an angry mob. There are some very, very good Assistant level coaches who'd likely be great hires---but the question now: Who the hell is going to be the person to hire them. Heck, if it were up to me, I'd suggest they hire Vowel Alum and current USC Offensive Coordinator Tee Martin---what do they have to lose with Tee?

Philip Fulmer?? It appears the former coach--who was fired in 2008 is making his "Power Move" now. Will Fulmer be the guy making the hire? Will it be the School President? Will it be the flash mobs? Clay Travis? God knows....

Stay tuned kids, this comically bad misadventure is far---far from over....
