As the search for the next Vols football coach continues, Tennessee fans appear to agree former Vols and current FAU head coach Lane Kiffin is the right man to return the program to prominence.
However, Tennessee athletic director John Currie must be oblivious to that sentiment.
During an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show Wednesday morning, Kiffin appeared and said he has not given any serious consideration to the Tennessee head coaching vacancy because Currie has yet to reach out.
From Dan Harralson of Saturday Down South:
Lane Kiffin on the Dan Patrick show this morning regarding coming back to Tennessee: "I have not thought about it, because John Currie has not reached out."

Currie was already on thin ice with the Vols faithful.
Considering Kiffin has been a favorite among the loyal Tennessee fan base to be the next head coach, these latest comments are going to cause them to sour on the athletic director even more.
We have no clue when the Vols coaching search will wrap up or who will ultimately land the job, but everyone can agree it has been an absolute disaster and fans have to be hoping the misery ends soon.
