Colin Cowherd has a wild suggestion for Tennessee.
As relayed by SEC Country’s Justin Ferguson on Wednesday, the Fox Sports personality said he would give former NFL coach Jon Gruden $10 million a year to lead the Vols.

Gruden’s name always seems to be popular for some reason. Yes, he’s a Super Bowl-winning coach. But he hasn’t stood on a sideline since his tenure in the NFL ended in 2008. His gig as an analyst with ESPN is rather cushy, after all.
There’s probably a zero percent chance Gruden will find himself in Knoxville any time soon, and the $10-million-a-year figure seems ridiculous. (Alabama’s Nick Saban made $6.9 million this past season.)
But keep dreaming, Cowherd.
