    Despite his charisma and personality it's been said he doesn't like recruiting. Is this actually true?

    Can he develop his recruits? That becomes the nitty gritty question.

    That was considered one of his glaring weaknesses in the NFL (when players come in already polished, compared to HS players) - he's a good Xs and Os guy, but not a good coach. The tennessee fans I've mentioned this to don't care - they claim he'll hire great coordinators and work more as a CEO. I told them that means other teams will have an extra actual coach, but they act like that doesn't matter.

    They've completely drunk the Kool Aid on this one...

    Remember the last time they fired a coach they hired a guy who was the biggest win for the guy they fired.

    He does have a 1-0 record against Saban.

    Gruden would be an epic fail. They need a national recruiter. Kiffin returning would probably be better than Gruden there

    I was thinking that exact same thing. If he took the UT job, there would be an exciting buzz in the air for a while and they would get some recruits from it. But once the dust settled, I wouldn't expect a whole lot from him.

    Not even close, IMO.

    As has already been said, he won at Tampa with the roster Tony Dungy built. Tennessee doesn’t have a good roster in place.
