Plenty of questions remain as Vols close season

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Now that Tennessee's season is over, the real intrigue begins.

The Volunteers aren't bowl eligible after posting a 5-7 record that included just one Southeastern Conference victory, but they'll still command plenty of attention over the next few weeks. Questions surround this program that annually competed for conference titles not long ago.

Who's going to be the Vols' next coach?

Will quarterback Tyler Bray and wide receivers Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson - all projected as first- or second-round draft picks - return for their senior seasons?

What will it take to make Tennessee a consistent winner again?

Athletic director Dave Hart must choose a successor to Derek Dooley, who was fired last week. Tennessee beat Kentucky 37-17 Saturday with offensive coordinator Jim Chaney as interim coach.
