Tony Romo says there’s one college football coach who already has interest from NFL teams.
Romo scheduled Sunday’s Week 8 matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. In the fourth quarter of a one-sided game, Romo began talking to Jim Nantz about the success of the Tennessee Vols.
“Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel … will be on every NFL team’s radar after this year,” Romo said.
Nantz noted that Romo must have had some special information to share with this nugget.

Heupel went 28-8 in three seasons at UCF before leaving for Tennessee. After going 7-6 last season, Heupel has the Vols at 8-0 this season. They knocked off Alabama and have wins over Pitt, Florida and LSU.
If Tennessee manages to beat Georgia next weekend, Vols fans will go crazy. And so will NFL owners in the market for a new head coach.
