As much as it pains me to say, TN is not an elite job anymore. 15-20 years ago, yes. Today, no. Most fans need to temper their expectations on who we can attract as a coach. However, this is a different situation. Most of the fan displeasure has to do with non-football reasons and rightfully so. The media wants to paint us an ignorant and ill-informed because we "ran off a good coach." If he didn't have the baggage associated with Pedo State U, then maybe I could get behind him. (Probably not) His record as a head coach isn't that great but, again, who can TN really attract?
