The Tennessee Volunteers will likely be looking for a new head coach after this season.

It would be hard to paint an uglier picture for Vols fans than the season they are currently going through. Tennessee is 3-4 on the season, and the biggest highlight from the year has been a comeback win over Georgia Tech in the season opener.

The Vols have looked terrible, and projections for the rest of this season are not favorable. Even running the table may not be enough to save Butch Jones at this point, but it is highly unlikely that the Vols will pull that off.

The rumor mill has already started with a coaching change looking more inevitable every week for Tennessee. A lot of the names mentioned in rumors seem like long shots, but Paul Finebaum sees one current SEC coach that he believes could be a good fit for the Vols.

John Hayes, producer for The Paul Finebaum Show, shared the comments on Twitter:

Dan Mullen has been with Mississippi State since 2009 and has done well with the program. Still, the allure of a program with a history like Tennessee’s may be enough to lure the coach to Knoxville.

It is still speculation at this point, but it is definitely a name to keep an eye on moving forward.
