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.

Which is odd because Currie came from a school that played Iowa State every season. You'd think he'd be familiar with any candidates in that conference and would have them on a short list.

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

TM is ready to become a headcoach. I wouldn't waste time on anyone else.

Neal Brown from Troy would be an interesting choice.

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.

It’s definately going to get worse. The only way to save it is to bring in Peyton Manning to give his blessing on whoever is hired.

You may be right. He's not quite the big name that Vols were hoping for, I'm sure, but he's got a pretty good resume and he's alumni. If he's successful then he'll stay forever.

He’s done a lot at Troy. Guess he’s waiting on right fit

Don't touch him. Please. He's doing well there, and I would like to see it continue. I don't think he'd do as well at UT.

Am told there's increasing pressure now from big-money #Vols boosters to force #Tennessee AD John Currie out in the wake of Sunday's news. UT source told me: "This is such a hot mess. Just when you think they’ve gotten out of the ditch. They’ve fallen into a much bigger one.”

Hearing that #USC OC Tee Martin, a #Vols legend who led UT to a national title, has a legit shot at the #Tennessee HC vacancy in the wake of yesterday’s mess.

Yeah.... if I weren't a Tennessee lifer, I wouldn't want to touch that dumpster fire. Schiano got lucky he didn't make it in.
