Greg Schiano under fire from Tennessee fans: Politicians, coffee house, protestors object

Schiano is now the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Ohio State. A formal announcement is expected on Sunday night.

Ironically, some Tennessee fans were hoping another former Tampa Bay coach - Jon Gruden - would become Butch Jones' replacement.

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.

There also seems to be a misunderstanding of the disaster Schiano inherited at Rutgers, when he went 3-20 in his first two seasons and had four straight losing seasons before taking Rutgers to six bowls in seven years.

Schiano, 51, is now the defensive coordinator at Ohio State.

Schiano spent the past two seasons at Ohio State's defensive coordinator. Schiano brings a strong defensive acumen and his sell will be his experience running a program and developing players, as his Rutgers teams consistently developed National Football League draft picks. At the time, Currie was at Kansas State managing the potential departure of Bill Snyder as head coach, which allowed him to treat almost every year like he was going through a coaching search.

While fans will always argue about the merits of a coaching hire on the field, reports that the school was finalizing a deal to hire Schiano caused widespread backlash from the fan base, with the majority pointing to that testimony as the biggest reasons Tennessee couldn't bring him into the program.
