    12:44 PM ET 12.01 | With Jon Gruden turning down the head coaching job for the Tennessee Volunteers football team, a few new star-studded candidates are making their way on to the list of betting favorites for the Vols vacancy. Interestingly enough, when Bovada released the betting favorites for the Vols head coaching gig, Gruden was not listed among the top possible candidates. The favorite to take the job is North Carolina head coach Butch Davis, who is listed as a slight favorite at 3/1. Davis has also been linked to the Arkansas Razorbacks job opening. Davis was fired from North Carolina before the 2011 season due to an impermissible benefits/academic misconduct scandal. After Davis, a very intriguing name has surfaced on the Bovada odds. Former Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel comes in at a 9/2 favorite from the job. Tressel is coming off of a scandal of his own at Ohio State where he helped cover up a major scandal for impermissible benefits which led to a five-year ban for the Buckeyes. If Tennessee was to hire Tressel, he would have to serve a five-game suspension to start the season and the Vols would be ineligible for a bowl game in his first season.
