Tennessee reportedly closing in on hiring Greg Schiano to replace Butch Jones

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasts UT over Greg Schiano reports

Tennessee is finalizing a deal with Greg Schiano to become the team's new head coach and it does not appear to be going over too well with fans in Knoxville. Sources said the deal has been agreed on, and just needs final signatures. His best year as a head coach came in 2006 when Rutgers went 11-2.

He has spent the past two seasons as Urban Meyer's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at Ohio State.

During his 11 season tenure as the leader of the Scarlett Knights, Schiano managed to produced six winning seasons.

The Volunteers fired Butch Jones on November 12, the day after they lost 50-17 at Missouri to fall to 0-6 in Southeastern Conference play. Schiano brings a strong defensive acumen and his sell will be his experience running a program and developing players, as his Rutgers teams consistently developed National Football League draft picks. He had been out of coaching since 2013, after he was sacked by the Buccaneers following an 11-21 tenure in two seasons. Ohio State ranked No. 3 in scoring defense last season with Schiano as co-coordinator and is No. 8 in total defense this year.

Was Schiano being considered throughout the coaching search?
