I don’t think this hire gets Tennessee back to fighting for the east. Feels more like a puppet hire for Phil.

Could be anywhere from a great hire to a horrible hire.

Only time will tell.

Will be interesting to see how the hire pans out. I'm sure UT is hoping for Kirby Smart type results, but Smart took over a pretty talent-rich team. And one that was laughably loaded at RB. Pruitt won't be walking into that good of a situation I don't think.
It's certainly a significantly bigger rebuild then UGA was when Smart took over and slightly better then SC when Muschamp took over.

I know we went 0-8 this season but we had more talent then probably 4 or 5of the teams we lost to in the SEC this season. So I think this is probably a 8-4 or so type roster with normal coaching next season. The problem is year 1 for a new coach is usually rough because personalities clash, personnel doesn't fit ECT. So I will be happy with 6-6 in year 1.

But with how Pruitt and this monster staff he is putting together could potentially recruit we should be up around 9-3 by year 2 and hopefully contending for the East by year 3 and beyond.

We hired Helton from OC who calls plays for Southern Cal and was OC at WKU under Brohm.

He has an awesome scheme and it should be really fun to watch.

Not sure we have a QB good enough to run it though....

Our staff is almost already finished.

OC - Helton
OL - Friend
RB - Gillespie
WR - (talks of your WR coach but not finalized)

DC - Sherrer from UGA
DL - Rumph
LB - Rocker
DB - Terry Fair

I will be happy making a bowl in year one. Recruiting and actual development will take care of the rest.

We have surface talent, but no real depth at any position. Our OL is in shambles minus Trey Smith.

“Tennessee’s main challenge is that, within the four corners of the MOU, it does not make it clear that the Chief Financial Officer’s signature on the document is a condition precedent for the MOU to be binding on the parties,” he states. “As Director of Athletics, one would presume that Currie has the ability to bind the University to such a contract, and a court of law may be stuck with determining whether University policy on the matter, which may require others’ signatures, is relevant to the enforceability of the document.”

If it is determined that the MOU was in fact binding, Tennessee would have to pay a significant portion of the guaranteed money amount to which it and Schiano agreed.
The MOU “states that the University of Tennessee may, in its sole discretion, terminate the MOU without cause and provide Schiano 75% of the base pay and supplemental pay as stated in the document. The MOU would have paid Schiano $27.7 million over the span of six years.”

That would equate to Tennessee paying Schiano roughly $21 million.

I would be elated if this were to happen to VolNation!

LOSER: TENNESSEE
In the end, Tennessee ended up with an inferior coach, an overmatched athletic director and setting a new standard for a disastrous coaching search. The hires that former athletic director John Currie was on the cusp of making – Greg Schiano and Mike Leach – are exponentially more accomplished and better qualified for the Tennessee job. But Phil Fulmer’s power play ended up with him in control as athletic director and Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as coach. Pruitt is just inexperienced enough that Fulmer will be able to keep sticking his nose in the program, which is what he’s wanted since he was run out of the job nearly a decade ago. (The classic clueless Fulmer moment was treating the press conference to dismiss Currie like he’d just been hired as coach again, as his tone – including introducing his family in attendance – showed a stunning lack of self-awareness.) Opposing SEC athletic directors, by the way, are giddy to have Fulmer in charge as his administrative acumen presents little threat to the rest of the league. Expect Tennessee’s glory to remain faded.

UT will be changing mascots from Smokey to the Phoenix rising from the dumpster fire. Gone is the trash can on the sideline but they are adding a dumpster.

As I figured they would, TN ended up with a better hire than half of the people that had turned them down during this 12+ person hiring disaster.

Having said that, absolutely nothing about this coaching hire or staff should concern UGA or USC fans IMO.
