Nothing has been made made official at Tennessee, and it will be interesting to see if a deal is finalized following the growing backlash to the report.

Tennessee has not announced a hiring yet.

Tennessee (4-8, 0-8 SEC) ended its season Saturday with a 42-24 loss to Vanderbilt.

After firing Butch Jones earlier this season, the Tennessee Volunteers have been taking part in a national search for a replacement.

The New Jersey native has never coached in the Southeastern Conference before.


Schiano was hired by the Buccaneers following the 2011 season, but he was sacked after two seasons with an 11-21 record. However, Mullen has been reported to be the top target of Florida.

Schiano developed a relationship with Currie when he was out of coaching for two seasons following his short tenure in Tampa. His best year as a head coach came in 2006 when Rutgers went 11-2. He posted a 68-67 record at Rutgers from 2001 to 2011, and had an 11-21 record leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In 2016, Schiano was implicated as a possible witness in the Penn State child rape scandal.

Schiano has vehemently denied knowledge and the only link to him and the crimes of Sandusky was an unsubstantiated claim offered in court by former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary.
