Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano’s name is being thrown around as a likely hire for the Tennessee Volunteers head football coach position, and fans are irate.

The news broke Sunday about the potential hire. It didn’t take long for fans to blow the lid off on social media. People seem particularly upset about the fact Schiano allegedly knew about the sex scandal at Penn State without doing anything to stop Jerry Sandusky’s horrific acts.

I can certainly sympathize with fans who thought Jon Gruden was on his way to town and instead you get Greg Schiano.

That’s a pretty big drop off in coaching talent, especially with the baggage that comes with Schiano.
