08:23 AM ET 11.14 | At least a few coaches who were once on the market -- Urban Meyer and Kevin Sumlin come to mind -- likely aren't leaving their new programs for Tennessee. Below Meyer and Sumlin are first-year coaches Rich Rodriguez at Arizona and Jim Mora Jr. at UCLA. ... "Why would either Mora or Rodriguez leave his job for UT after a successful first season?" you ask. Good question. After extensive research, I've determined that Tennessee isn't their dream job. Arizona State coach Todd Graham doesn't need a dream to change jobs after a year. He already has Kiffined two programs, first Rice in 2006 and then Pittsburgh in 2011. ... If the Vols' coaching search turns desperate -- and they're not above Kiffining somebody -- Graham could be their guy.

Nice try at coining a term but I don't think it will stick. Kiffin is known more for getting things he does not deserve and running his mouth not leaving after one year.

Why would anyone want to live in Tennessee?? Tennessee doesn't matter in anything but moonshine-animal pelts-log cabin living and cross breeding among cousins and family. Even the Clampett's left Tennessee.

I am not sure if I understand how you feel about Tennessee. Can you clarify? :-)

If it comes to fruition, has any coach voluntarily had so many jobs in a 5 year span?

Already tired of this story thats a non-story. Since DD is still the coach, shut up til he gets canned.

No income tax. Grand Old Opry. Beal Street. The funniest (& only) tent revival I attended.

References are the clampetts are from the ozarks in the missouri/arkansas area. They are not from Tennessee. YOu should have said Davey Crockett.


Yeah

Kiffining??? Is this the normal quality of writers for this paper, or is it just some jackass begging for readers???

That article was a perfectly good wast of internet space and an insult to the intelligence of at least 47% of the people on here!

I think the folks in Knoxville know him more for the latter than for the former. That and recruiting a pretty good class of players that lasted at the school about as long as he did.
