After Phillip Fulmer retired as Tennessee’s head coach following the 2008 season, the Vols turned to a young coach named Lane Kiffin to replace him.

He went 7-6 in 2009 before leaving after the season to take the open USC head coaching job. That led to his name being a very unpopular one on Rocky Top ever since.

But, would he consider a return to Tennessee now that Jeremy Pruitt has been fired for cause? ESPN insider Chris Low appeared on 3HL on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville on Monday evening and said it’s at least worth a phone call to see if Kiffin would be interested:

Again, as Low says, he is definitely not saying that Kiffin would be interested in leaving Ole Miss for a return to Tennessee. He’s simply saying Tennessee has to make the call.

Will Kiffin’s name enter the mix on Rocky Top? Anything is possible in these crazy times!
