Tennessee fans are holding an actual protest over Greg Schiano rumors

"I know he was contacted, but that's all I know at this point", Meyer said Sunday during a conference call previewing Ohio State's Big Ten championship game Saturday with Wisconsin. A photo of The Rock on Tennessee's campus even surfaced with a strong statement on Schiano that references his time at Penn State.

First-year Tennessee athletic director John Currie fired fifth-year coach Butch Jones on November 12 with two games still remaining on the scheduled and launched a nationwide search for Jones' replacement.

In October, a judge declined to overturn Sandusky's conviction for sexual abuse of 10 boys.


Tennessee is set to hire a former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach, just not the one many Volunteers fans had hoped they would. The Volunteers lost to Vanderbilt 42-24 to finish 4-8, 0-8 in the SEC, their first eight-loss season in school history and their first winless campaign in the SEC. He had a run of success at Rutgers, posting a 68-67 record as the Scarlet Knights' head coach from 2001-2011.

And Greg Schiano thought he inherited a tough job at Rutgers.

Schiano's record as a head coach in both the National Football League and at Rutgers may be uninspiring to Vol fans. The Bucs fired him after he went 11-21 in two years.
