    Rumor: TE Jason Witten Could Be Eyeing Tennessee Coaching Job

    The may be entering a time of great change.

    With their season going down the dumps quickly, and the team seeming to be falling apart, is now calling for the firing of head coach . They also would like to see both coordinators replaced, as neither the nor has been able to make plays without and .

    It's a current player which has seen his name enter head coach discussions, however. The University of Tennessee fired their head football coach a few weeks ago, and has been searching for his replacement ever since.

    Though they thought they had found that replacement in Greg Schiano Sunday afternoon, student protests and public outcry influenced the university to reverse their decision. Now, still without a head coach, rumors are circulating that current Cowboys tight end Jason Witten may be open to joining the staff.

    Witten is a former Tennessee Volunteer himself, and with his pedigree, you could see why those around the Vols would be excited to welcome him back home.

    The validity of these reports are still in question, but it does contribute to the idea the Cowboys need to find a new tight end sooner rather than later. Regardless on if he were to become a head coach elsewhere, Jason Witten is getting up there in age, and declining in terms of his ability.

    Tight end is becoming a serious need for the Cowboys very quickly, and one they may need to address this .

    We’ve seen lots of good OC’s and DC’s who weren’t HC material – Phillips, Marinelli, Linehan, Garrett…

    Wait. Garrett was never a proven OC… ;^)

    So there is an intangible quality to it, and coaching experience notwithstanding, Witten either has it or he will prove not to. He’s a smart guy, so would probably make sure he hired a proven staff around him.

    The SEC being so formidable, would make it hard for him to recruit & compete out of state with the top programs in the league. But he might have drawing power as a recruiter to keep the in-state talent from leaving.
