Tennessee’s defense wasn’t bad in 2015. It just struggled at times to step up and make the big play, especially in some late-game, fourth-down situations. Enter Bob Shoop from Penn State, one of the most respected defensive coordinators in the nation.

He has made his reputation on generating pressure and producing top-10 defenses nationally at both PSU and Vanderbilt. Loaded with likely his most overall talented defense of his career, Shoop’s charge is not only to produce a defense that improves a bit statistically, but, perhaps more importantly, steps up in the big moments to help get the Vols more wins in 2016.
