Dallas Cowboys star tight end Jason Witten is willing to leave the organization to coach the Tennessee Volunteers.

Clay Travis broke the news Monday when he tweeted, “As the Tennessee search redirects, I’m told current Dallas Cowboy tight end Jason Witten has let Tennessee athletic director John Currie know he would leave the Cowboys to take over the Tennessee football job.”

Tennessee’s coaching situation has spiraled out of control after a fan revolt led the team pulling back on the hiring of Greg Schiano. It’s the only time in the history of football I can remember a coach losing his job before even having it due to massive fan outrage.

The only thing more unbelievable with what happened with Schiano would be if Witten quits the Cowboys to coach college football. This situation is getting so wild that it’s too unrealistic for a movie script. I have no idea how this is going to end, but it’s going to be nuts no matter what happens.
