Greg Schiano reportedly is seeking compensation from Tennessee after the school backed out of an agreement to make him the program’s next head coach. Tennessee and Schiano both signed a memorandum of understanding that the current Ohio State defensive coordinator would be the next head coach of the Vols, according to ESPN’s Chris Low. Schiano was set to be introduced at a press conference on Sunday night. But when news emerged on Sunday that the Vols were finalizing a deal to make Schiano the program’s head coach, Tennessee fans went nuts. Fans protested outside Neyland Stadium, while politicians and others all shared their displeasure with the hiring via social media. Many of the protests cited Schiano’s alleged involvement in the Jerry Sandusky scandal while he was an assistant at Penn State.
