Just read a report on facebook that Fulmer has reached out to Miles and Tee is open to OC/Assoc. HC with Miles.   If nothing else,  does this indicate that Tee is willing to come home as OC with another name coach as HC?

I think Miles may be the only way to get Tee without making him the HC, short of pulling Gruden. Miles is 65 and you could give him 5 years to stabilize and recruit. Tee could use a few years seasoning in the league as OC / Assistant HC / HCIW before taking the job. Sort of what Fulmer did with Johnny.

I'm in, too, with the possibly unrealistic hope that Phil makes sure that Les leaves Tee alone. Les has a reputation for micromanaging offensive coordinators and his offense is stale and unimaginative.

Unless Miles agrees to leave the OC alone in organized and calling stupid plays, UT will be stuck at 8 wins a year. Miles rarely beat Bama because he ran the ball too much. You beat Bama by passing and a mobile QB (see Johnny Football and Clemson).

What makes anyone believe for one minute Miles will retire in 5 years or less?

Why are you worried about beating Bama? We are a long way from beating Bama. Bama has the best coach to ever do it. To beat them on a consistent basis, we'd have to get one of the Petersen / Patterson / Gruden / Shaw type of personalities and hope the SEC money and exposure pushes them up. Considering the events of the last week, perhaps the short term focus should be getting back above Vandy, Kentucky, Missouri, and South Carolina as quickly as possible. Les can recruit and has a good reputation with high school coaches. Relationships in Louisiana and Texas.

I agree about Les's offensive concerns, but I think Phil will work all that out and at his age, he can agree to a 5 year contract knowing Tee is HCIW, and if he doesn't want to retire they can let him go. Compared to the events of the last month, that's stability.  Everybody wanted to look at Butch as a table setter coach for the guy who would come in and push us over the top but that's not what he was once recruits and players figured him out. We now need that table setter.

With the money UT has spent in the last month......8.5 mil to Butch....3 mil to the staff.....5 mil maybe less to Currie.....Several mil to the new incoming staff. Miles not having a buyout to worry about.....He's said he'll take less money to put it on the staff and when Fulmer looks in the mirror he see Miles in the reflection. It seems to point in that direction.

I think 73volgrad is a pretty realistic poster who takes a negative view of most things so I'm not really arguing with him... just taking the positive slant of it. There are definitely concerns but the biggest problem the fans need to understand is that having championship expectations doesn't mean that we can't realize where we are and there need to be some interim steps.

Although I will add that we were above all of them in 2015.   But from November 2016 on has been a shizzle show.
