Now for what I have heard from some very credible sources..

Jon Gruden has legitimate interest in Tennessee. He makes 4.3 million in broadcasting. He has told Dave Hart that he would only coach at Tennessee (alum), and he has looked over our roster with a few of his expected hires. He has informed Hart that he would be expecting a pay raise as well. We have laid down 4.8 million per season on the table and he is trying to negotiate that to 5 mil.

Sources: Veteran well-known and credible posters on Vol Nation. Well-known figures that come in to my work (I work in UT apparel retail.. we see a lot of athletes, coaches, journalists, etc). Oh, and practically everyone on campus is talking about it. I'm a student. The word is out.

Any day now. Tick tock.
For what its worth, Gruden is an alum of Dayton (OH) U. His wife is the UT alumn, and unless he is a woos like one well-known former PREDATOR, I doubt his wife will make the final decision about what he wants to do with the rest of his life. As has been mentioned by most "experts", there have been and will be oodles of NFL coaching jobs for him to select if he wants to get back in that profession, so why would he settle for being a college coach? Stranger things have happened, though, so we will see. Does the final match get lit to burn that seat as early as tomorrow evening following their performance at SC????
