Tennessee fans are holding an actual protest over Greg Schiano rumors

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasts UT over Greg Schiano reports

He had a brief stint as an National Football League head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was sacked just after two back-to-back losing seasons. Now he'll try his hand against a new Volunteers head man.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden was also among the targets of the Tennessee search, with CBS Sports reporting the school was willing to offer Gruden a deal that would pay him upwards of $10 million a year.

Photos of The Rock from Tennessee's campus surfaced Sunday with a strong statement about Schiano that references his time at Penn State.


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. He went 68-67 with Rutgers, 49-28 his final six season, jumpstarting a languishing program. Schiano led the Scarlet Knights to bowl wins in four straight seasons from 2006-09.

Tennessee finished this season with a 4-8 record.

Along with working in the National Football League for two seasons, Schiano has become a close confidant of Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and Schiano spent considerable time with him during his two years out of coaching.
