The saga to find the replacement for Derek Dooley continues as Tennessee is now reportedly setting their lowered expectations on Cincinnati head football coach Butch Jones to be the Vols' new HC. This after Jon Gruden, Mike Gundy, and Charlie Strong turned the school down.
Jones has already been headhunted by both Purdue and Colorado, with no success. It seems there might be some interesting thing going on behind the scenes in this case though.
"The Cincinnati Enquirer said that neither Jones nor athletic director
Whit Babcock returned calls for comment all day Thursday. Jones' agent,

The Enquirer reported that the Bearcats called a 7:30 a.m. team
meeting for today, although it's not clear when the meeting was
scheduled and whether it was meant to address the ongoing coaching

BEST OF MAXIM
The Oakland Raiders on Wednesday publicly dismissed a report that former Raiders coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden was being discussed as a possible replacement for first-year head coach Dennis Allen.
"There are two people on this planet that have the ability to make talks happen between Jon Gruden and the Raiders, with regard to him allegedly taking over the football...
RETURN OF CHUCKY
Rumor has it that NFL analyst Jon Gruden and the Raiders have been in talks to bring the team's onetime head coach back into the fold in Oakland.
There was reported a crazy rumor recently that Monday Night Football analyst and former Super Bowl winning NFL Head Coach Jon Gruden was offered the University of Tennessee job, along with a Cleveland Browns' ownership stake. All parties involved promptly disputed the report, with Gruden saying "I'm just excited about Monday Night Football. I like what I'm doing...
The Oakland Raiders are pretty furious about the rumor that they were trying to bring back Jon Gruden as their head coach for next season.
The Raiders ended up releasing a statement so they could voice their frustrations.

It Is What It Is » Jon Gruden on Patriots-Texans: ‘This game has all the makings of a shootout’:...
Okay, for just a moment imagine that Jon Gruden rejoining the Raiders isn't the worst idea for both sides of the discussion. Pretend that the small market Raiders wouldn't have to eat the contracts of Reggie McKenzie and Head Coach Dennis Allen. Pretend that Gruden didn't botch the only job in which he was in [...]
Maybe the term "settles" is a little harsh but when your other candidates were Jon Gruden, Mike Gundy and Charlie Strong, it fits. By settling, it doesn't necessarily mean that this is a bad hire. In fact, I like this hire more than the last two that the Vols have made. Of course, the last two hires were Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley so I'm not sure that's saying...
If the rumors are true that Jon Gruden wants back in Oakland, perhaps he’s crazier than we thought.
You would be hard pressed to find a worse situation for the former Raiders and Buccaneers head coach to make his comeback.
Surely Gruden has fond memories of his four years in Oakland. And he certainly has the fans’ support, but despite the death of Al Davis, the Raiders are still...
It’s almost a weekend off for Patriots fans, with New England taking on the Houston Texans on Monday night, it’s a weekend to score points with your significant other by offering to do something on Sunday afternoon.
Unless you have the Red Zone channel, that is.

Danny & Dano, the hosts of Sonoma County Sports Fans radio show and podcast were kind enough to invite me back again this week to talk Raiders. We discussed a number of different topics including the possibility of Jon Gruden coming back to coach the Silver & Black, how much blame Carson Palmer bears for the offenses struggles and what the Raiders should do, at a broad...
He may not have been their first option or even among their Top 5, but the University of Tennessee made the right choice when they hired Cincinnati Bearcats coach Butch Jones as the 23rd head coach in the history of Tennessee football.
When Derek Dooley was fired on November 18th, immediate speculation surrounded Monday Night Football host Jon Gruden as the favorite replacement....
