RE: Could Noland be headed to UT?
Noland has unfinished business. My father continues to suggest that the Noland family will wait until their son completes high school before moving on. I don't know, but that's certainly time to see the ETSU vision through to a winning football team and perhaps the advent of a law school. I think there's a lot of actionable work Noland can continue to build his CV upon at ETSU before assuming the next level, should he choose to continue building.

I hope he does not... I ******* hate UT and their damn university. It is such a piece of **** and stain to East Tennessee. Dr. Noland is a million times better off here at ETSU.

There is a BIG plus I'm sure to their family to have their son at University School. It was recently ranked #9 in TN and 1046 in the nation. I'm sure there are good schools, including private ones in Knoxville, but we have a big gem right here. Bonus, that his son is in school right next door to him, literally.

He's done a lot for ETSU in a very short amount of time. Young, ambitious guys are great to have, but you have to realize that there's no off switch. A mountain climber has to climb mountains.

I'm not saying that Noland doesn't want the UT job or won't eventually take it but this is a different situation than say a coach moving from ETSU to UT. Any state university president job is a big deal and the difference between being the president at ETSU and UT is not that big of a jump. Jimmy Cheek made $434K last year and Noland made $311K. While a significant difference, that 100k is not change your lifestyle money.
Money has NOTHING to do with whether Noland would pursue the job at UT or not IMO. The opportunity to run a flagship University is appealing to anyone as ambitious as Nolan and only comes around so often. In addition Noland received his Ph'D from UT and as mentioned, he previously pursued the job the last time around.

If UT comes calling Noland is out the door IMO.

He was not in the running for the job Jimmy Cheek has now (UT Knoxville President), he was in the running for President of the University of TN system, which Joe DiPietro got.

I agree, if that job opened up and they wanted him he would probably bolt. Good thing for us is that Cheek is not going anywhere for several years.

Yes, there's a difference between the positions of President of the UT System and Chancellor of UT-Knoxville.

.......Cheek has 4-5 more years, they'll get through the lawsuit, let things die down, then make changes.

Cheek to teach only

Can't get the link at the bottom of that article for the News-Sentinel to work. I'm sure those who want to can track it down.

It's starting to get interesting. Maybe the rumors have legs.

Something has changed here. I still don't think Noland is ready for this job yet, and should let someone else go first, unless he's looking to parlay the Chancellor's job into a run into politics.
If he goes, he goes. ETSU could very well be screwed as they'll go with the safe route and hire someone like Wilsie Bishop to screw up everything that Dr. Noland has built.
I hope that's not the case, but history suggests they won't get the hire right two times in a row.
