Some names at Tennessee

Now that we know Phillip Fulmer is out at Tennessee at the end of the season, the next question is: Who replaces him?

Some names, in no particular order, that I think may be on Tennessee's list include former Raiders coach Lane Kiffin, Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, Texas Tech coach Mike Leach, Minnesota coach Tim Brewster, TCU coach Gary Patterson and Illinois offensive coordinator Mike Locksley.

One of the priorities will be a coach who has a strong recruiting background and can recruit nationally. That's a must at Tennessee, which doesn't have a strong natural recruiting base in its own state, at least not as strong as most of the other teams in the SEC.
