Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics John Currie was sacked Friday morning after just eight months on the job, and 19 days after he fired coach Butch Jones.

"He has been a student-athlete, a head coach, and a father of UT student-athletes", she said In the release. Though we can debate all day whether anger over Schiano was a product of skepticism over his resume or the allegation that he helped cover up child sexual assault at Penn State, the situation was a PR fiasco of the highest order.

Reports linked Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Purdue's Jeff Brohm to Tennessee's vacancy, but both stayed put. The whole search has become a punchline.

According to multiple reports, Tennessee fired Currie on Friday.

Is this all Currie's fault?

There is a growing faction at Tennessee pushing to get Currie removed.

Yep, life comes at you fast. But even with Fulmer or whoever it is that ends up taking the job, the search for an actually good coach is not going to be an easy one, as has been proven repeatedly.

Fulmer was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012.

The Volunteers are "working on a deal" with Leach and could make an announcement as early as, Newy Scruggs of the NBC television affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth reported.

Tennessee was close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano on Sunday, but the deal fell through due to backlash from fans and supporters. Earlier, North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren agreed to a contract extension after he had discussions with Tennessee.

Currie was in Los Angeles Thursday, reportedly interviewing Leach, and Leach flew back to Pullman, Washington, when it was done. Leach went 84-43 in 10 seasons at Texas Tech from 2000 to 2009 but was sacked amid allegations that he mistreated a player.

Recall that Fulmer was a candidate to take the team's AD job before Currie got it back in the winter of 2017.
