As you’ve probably seen, Tennessee fans and the like are going nuts over news that Greg Schiano and Tennessee were in the final works of a deal to bring Schiano to Knoxville as the Vols’ new coach.
Now, Saturday Down South’s Dan Harralson says “Not so fast, my friends.”
Greg Schiano is currently concerned with the climate of the Tennessee fan base and the reaction towards reports of his contract being finalized at Tennessee. The deal may not get finalized.

Harralson doesn’t attribute the information to any source, but it doesn’t seem like a far-fetched idea.
Politicians are speaking out against the potential hire, and even local businesses are now turning their backs on Schiano.
Greg Schiano is not allowed in our establishment.

Who in the world would John Currie and Tennessee look to if Schiano backs out or Currie decides to go his separate way? I personally haven’t seen a hire go over anything like this. It’s borderline insane.
