Tennessee athletic director John Currie needed to nail this coaching hire in the worst way possible after botching the Greg Schiano debacle from over the weekend. Currie may have done just that, possibly saving his job in the process.

According to multiple reports, Tennessee is shifting its focus to Purdue coach Jeff Brohm to fill its coaching vacancy. Brohm just finished his first season with Purdue, an overachieving 6-6 effort in which he was known for drawing up fun, creative offensive plays. Prior to that, he went 30-10 in three seasons as the coach of Western Kentucky.
