Tennessee Head Football Coach Hot Board

Chad Morris

Quick Bio: Chad Morris first gained popularity as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Clemson. And now he’s gone on and turned around an SMU program that had fallen by the wayside.

Pros: Morris showed at Clemson that he has offensive prowess. He helped coach some great quarterbacks with the Tigers, and he’s displayed an ability to rebuild a program at SMU.

Cons/Questions: Tennessee doesn’t need a rebuild any longer. Butch Jones was able to do that. How does Morris react when at a Power Five school as a head coach?

Frank Wilson

Quick Bio: Frank Wilson has Tennessee ties, SEC experience, and has made history at his current school. No wonder the UT-San Antonio coach is catching attention around the country.

Pros: Wilson was Tennessee’s wide receivers coach in 2009 and was on LSU’s staff from 2010-15 before he took the head coaching job of UTSA. He also coached at Ole Miss from 2005-07. He took UTSA to their first ever bowl appearance last season and is a win away from doing so again this year.

Cons/Questions: Wilson has SEC experience and has coached at Tennessee before. And despite making history at UTSA, his numbers there aren’t exactly eye-popping. He’s just 11-11 as a head coach. He probably needs some more experience before he’s ready for a big time job.
