NCAA president Mark Emmert knocks Tennessee over coaching search

Another day saw another person take a shot at Tennessee over its ongoing head coaching search.

As the search reached its 25th day without conclusion Wednesday, NCAA president Mark Emmert became the latest to pile on, criticizing the school for its struggles in securing a bench boss.

“When you don’t have the board, president, and AD in alignment about why you play football, what your goals are, and how you’re going to make personnel decisions … then you get what happened at UT (Tennesssee),” Emmert told Jason Belzer of Forbes.

While numerous candidates have turned down the advances of the school, the most notable incident involved Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano.

The Volunteers had a deal with the former Rutgers head coach, only to back away following intense backlash from its fan base on campus and social media. That stained the program’s image to a certain degree, and could give future candidates pause before accepting the job.
