    He won't have to, especially if Muchamp and Fisher continue to perform well. Unless he just wants to be a head coach and is unhappy as a Bama DC at 36.

    A good example, Auburn would have taken Coach Smart over Malzahn.

    Re: Joe Schad - TENN now interested in Kirby Smart

    If Coach Smart had interest in the AU job, he'd certainly be interested in this one. UT is the better job as it doesn't have the black cloud of NCAA current investigations surrounding it.....It's an SEC job, the Eastern Division, good facilities, a winning program, etc... etc..... It wouldn't be a good business decision to not to at least see what it's all about.

    I refuse to link to him or quote him directly, but Ol Tennstud says that UT wants Kirby as DC and Petrino as OC, with both getting multiple year deals at $1.7 mil.

    He says the next head coach is the old head coach. No, the old old one: Phatimus.

    Well that is the most presumptuous thing I have heard - well they thought they would land Gruden so maybe not...

    LOL.

    We'll pay CKS whatever someone else will for the same position, if we even have to.

    That was precisely my reaction as well.

    I could see BP taking the OC position out of sheer desperation. I could also see them trying to resurrect Phatimus for a year or two. But to seriously believe that KS would take a lateral move (at best) for a little more money is pyschotic.

    Re: Joe Schad - TENN now interested in Kirby Smart

    Of the last 3 names mentioned, Jones, Smart, and Pellini to me it is a no brainer. Jones has been a heckuva of a coach at every stop he has made. He should be able to recruit Ohio, PA etc plus the southeast, but it will take awhile. I really don't know about Smart, tough position to be put in with no HC experience. Pellini, like Bielema, may see the handwriting on the wall in the Big 10 that Meyer and Hoke maybe getting those programs back to historical highs. I just have never been bowled over by Pellini as the head man at Nebraska.

    I'm pretty sure this is the first big hire Hart's ever made - I think we're seeing experience gained the hard way on this one...

    It's called "opportunity"....Tennessee has a better tradition than the barn, I'm just not sure their pockets are as deep...

    wasn't it widely reported yesterday that Smart declined to be interviewed for this job?

    If he shuns this, presumptuous or not I will believe he has an under the table agreement with Bama.
