I think he would be a much better hire than Schiano but since they are announcing a hire already I don't think Campbell had an interview. Was there no interest on Tennessee's part or did Campbell indicate he wasn't interested?

I don’t have any inside info but it seems that Currie allowed himself to be seduced by the Gruden idea and threw all his eggs into that basket. The backup would have been Mullen, but UCLA threw everything out of whack. UF’s first choice goes to Westwood, the Gators get Mullen and UT ends up SOL. In the scramble they end up in the same situation they weee in hiring Butch, desperate to have someone tell them yes. My guess is that Campbell wasn’t on the radar.

What a mess.

Tennessee should just hire Jeremy Pruitt but their ego won’t let them

How about Seth Litrell? North Texas 1-11 in 2015, this year 9-3?
Or there is a guy on here who has pushed Bill Clark, and I felt like he was trolling, but at this point, why not take a guy who has faced Alabama's wrath and won? Candle from Toledo? Frank Solich?Harsin? Tedford? Rocky Long at SDSU?

I think this is the type of coach we will have to look at.

I wouldn't expect much from Tennessee's current administration to think outside the box...

The whole thing has been botched.

Either the cost of success just got a whole hell of a lot higher or it will be a few more years of somebodies best, though ineffective, effort.

Why would anyone want Kansas State's A.D.? Currie didn't have to make a major hire at K State because Snyder was/is an institution there. Tennessee needed a veteran of many tough hires as an A.D.. So yeah, the issue is systemic at Knoxville.

It’s difficult to imagine this being worse for UT right now.

He was supposed to be part of the Gruden hire and come in as UT's top recruiter.
