The UT athletic director was serenaded with "Fire Currie" chants during a WWE "Raw" live show in Knoxville. Lots of people want Currie gone after he tried to hire Greg Schiano as football coach, only to withdraw the offer in the face of withering opposition.

How much time Currie gets to redeem himself is an open question. A good portion of the people in Knoxville (and Vols Nation) isn't willing to give him any.
