So, this Jon Gruden T-shirt was inevitable.
It’s no secret that Tennessee fans love the thought of Gruden, a Super Bowl-winning coach, coming to Knoxville one day. Following “Grumors” has become a pastime for Volunteers fans, and if Tennessee moves past the Butch Jones era soon, it will be interesting to see if Gruden will become a legitimate option for the Vols.
As you can see in the photo below, which was retweeted by Outkick The Coverage analyst Clay Travis, the Vols fan on the right made his feelings about Gruden known with a “Hire Jon Gruden” T-shirt. Pretty creative.

This much is known: Jones is in a tough spot. Tennessee entered its game Saturday against Alabama with a 3-3 record, and the Vols look stuck at the moment under him. A loss to Alabama would drop the Volunteers to 0-4 in SEC play this season.
