It’a almost been a week since Tennessee fired Butch Jones, and the coaching rumors have gone into a new gear on the internet all week.
And on Saturday morning, SEC Nation’s Marcus Spears made a big claim that should excite Volunteers fans in Knoxville in beyond.
He says that Tennessee job is one of the top five in the country, not just the SEC, but the whole country. Watch his reasoning below:
“It’s because of the infrastructure,” Spears said. “It’s because of this fan base, and it’s because of Tennessee’s tradition and what they’ve been. This is going to be very enticing for a lot of guys who are looking for a chance to move up or are looking to go to a place where they really can compete for a championship.”
Such a status makes you think that Tennessee will go after a big name to hire, but the Vols could also opt to go for an up and coming coach, as Spears suggested, who could help turn the program around.
