Schiano, who is now an assistant coach at Ohio State, has not been a head coach since he was sacked by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in 2013.

It appears the Tennessee Volunteers have made a decision on who will be their next Head Coach.

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden was also among the targets of the Tennessee search, with CBS Sports reporting the school was willing to offer Gruden a deal that would pay him upwards of $10 million a year. His Ohio State defense has since piqued the interest of Tennessee, which has a history of making such brilliant coaching hires as Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley.

After two years and an 11-21 record, Schiano was sacked by Tampa Bay at the end of the 2013 season and spent two years as a volunteer coach at Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa before Urban Meyer brought him on board at Ohio State prior to the 2016 season as defensive coordinator and assistant head coach. He went 34-27 in his five seasons with the Vols. The Volunteers then lost their final two games to finish 4-8 overall and 0-8 in the conference. His NFL tenure was brief, with a 11-21 record and some tumult.
