What a week on Rocky Top.

The Tennesee Vols hired Danny White away from UCF to replace Phillip Fulmer as the program’s new athletic director this past week.

This was an unexpected home run hire by Tennessee.

White accomplished great things at UCF. He helped turn their football program into a perennial winner. The Vols are hoping he can do the same thing in Knoxville.

White will immediately get to work hiring a new head coach to replace the recently-fired Jeremy Pruitt.

So who will it be?

That’s the big question that no one seems to be able to answer right now. White is keeping the details of the search very quiet.

But that won’t stop us from speculating on the names that are being considered (and giving our take on who the best hire would be).
