Who is ready to fire up the old Twitter machine and break out the coaching hot boards? Can’t forget checking flight logs either. Almost nothing is more exciting to me than a good coaching search, and with Pruitt struggling winning games, and looking like he’d rather be in Alabama chilling with Saban during press conferences, we could have one in Knoxville this year. One of the popular names in Knoxville? Mr. Hugh Freeze. Freeze is currently coaching at Liberty University and has the Flames currently ranked the 21st team in the nation. Freeze is a proven winner. He has beaten Saban, he has beaten Mullen, and he has beaten a Kirby Smart coached defense. Can you imagine Jalin Hyatt in a Hugh Freeze offense? Goodness. This isn’t a pipe dream, as ESPN’S Adam Rittenberg reported that “Tennessee is Freeze’s preferred landing destination.” One report even went as far as to say “he wouldn’t just like to have the job, he'd love it.” . The choice is clear, the time is now to fire Jeremy Pruitt and put the full press on landing Hugh Freeze. But unfortunately the Vols aren't known for making the right hire, more often than not they go bargain shopping and end up back in the market for a coach within 2-3 years. But let’s hope this time is different. Let’s hope this university finally gets serious about winning and goes and hires the right candidate.
