Greg Schiano was introduced as Rutgers’ new football coach on Wednesday and unsurprisingly the Tennessee Vols came up.

Two years ago, Schiano agreed to become the Vols’ head coach, but a fan revolt kept the hiring from becoming a reality.

When Schiano was asked about Tennessee on Wednesday, his response was a direct shot at Vols fans and residents of Tennessee.

Schiano has remained remarkably silent on his view of what happened at Tennessee in late 2017. I figured he’d have a lot more to say on the subject. Instead, he chose to throw a jab at the Vol fan base.

For what it’s worth, the Vols made the right decision. Schiano wouldn’t have been a good fit at Tennessee. He’s essentially Butch Jones on steroids.

Who knows what the Jeremy Pruitt era will ultimately hold at Tennessee, but there’s no doubt he’s a better fit in Knoxville than Schiano would’ve ever been.
