UPDATED: Tennessee Basketball Coaching Hot Board

Tom Crean (Indiana)

9365348Pros: Though he’s still employed at Indiana, he may be looking to get out ahead of the crowd and change jobs before a decision is made for him. Several sources have indicated that he’s floating his name for several vacancies at this point and he would probably listen to Tennessee. He has an overall 311–207 (.600) record and a 9-8 mark in NCAA Tournaments. In seven seasons at Indiana, he’s been to two Sweet 16s and three NCAA Tournaments. Prior to his time at Indiana, he went to five NCAA Tournaments and made one Final Four run in nine seasons at Marquette. Though Indiana fans have mixed feelings about Crean, you can’t argue with his success.

Cons: He’s making over $3 million a year and would certainly be one of the more costly options on this list. He might be willing to take a pay cut to get out ahead of the mob, but that’s the only way Tennessee could potentially afford Crean. He has an abrasive personality that is sure to rub some folks the wrong way.
