The Tennessee coaching search is turning into more of a disaster with every passing day.
Despite having plenty of money to work with, AD John Currie has yet to be able to land a coach to replace Butch Jones.
At this point, the search is getting comical to everyone not rooting for the Vols, as it seems the school can’t do anything right.
On Tuesday night, after news broke that Gundy was staying put, Vol Nation took to Twitter to express their exasperation and direct even more anger at their embattled athletic director.
If Currie doesn’t hire a new head coach soon, he can expect plenty of tweets like the ones below coming his way in the near future:
If it’s any consolation, Mike Gundy probably doesn’t have any grounds to sue Tennessee.

We wanted you Gundy. Our crappy AD doesn't know what he's doing tho. Wish you the best while we sit here and wait while clueless athletic administrators try to find us a coach. https://t.co/WqmOvfTbnA

Sad to see what’s happening with Tennessee. I don’t blame Gundy for turning down 6 yr $42M to stay at his Alma mater where he’s so loved, but Tennessee SHOULD be one of the most coveted coaching jobs in the country,but its tarnished.#emptyneyland & protesting a coach didn’t help

So we offered Gundy the job before. He turned it down and we ended up with Butch. He turns us down again. We better not end up with crap again. It's time to go in house and rebuild our program. @coachtee17 @John_Currie @VolTwiitter

So since Gundy turned us down, what's the deal with TN airplane en route to Oklahoma? I'm sure it will get lost in the Bermuda Triangle now. Thanks a lot, John Currie

Tennessee’s perception is in bad shape. They’re getting turned down left and right. we just threw $7M in Gundy’s face and he said no. Bruh WHAT!? At this point, our saving grace is to hire a #Vols guy. Just call Tee Martin and hire his ass. I’m so embarrassed right now.

Go after Gundy. He’s a man!
Unless you’re the dumpster fire called #Tennessee. Mike wants no part of that.

Will the Vols find a coach that the fans can get behind soon? With each passing day, that looks like it is getting more and more unlikely.
