Tennessee and Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano were close to a deal to make Schiano UT's next head football coach but it appears the deal is now off.
Fans gathered on the University of Tennessee's campus to protest the potential Tennessee hire and many people spoke out against it on social media.
Fans were outraged about Schiano's alleged involvement in the Penn State scandal.
Schiano served as an assistant and defensive backs coach at Penn State in the early 1990s. He worked under then defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Sandusky was convicted in 2011 of multiple counts of sexual abuse of young boys.
According to court papers, a former assistant testified that Schiano knew about Sandusky's behavior.
