Could Noland be headed to UT?
No inside information, just local sports talk show talk this morning in Knoxville. Rumor is that Jimmy Cheek will be gone as Chancellor by the end of the year and that Noland could be a top candidate to take his position. Dave Hart would also be let go as UT AD, leaving Noland with a voice on the new AD selection. Again, rumor and talk only. But it is interesting they are talking about it with Noland mentioned by name and what a good job he has done at ETSU.

Pretty obvious that the entire state is jealous of what Noland has done at ETSU. We've really been blessed with great leadership and coaches over the past few years.

*Noland

A couple of years ago I would have said he was a shoe in but due to recent events I feel they are going to fill this with a woman. Just my opinion.

I'm hoping that Noland is so invested with ETSU...he will not even consider anything else. Knoxville is no Johnson City. You laugh? There are those of us who are eaten up with Unaka, Roan, Mitchell and even little ole Buffalo Mountains.....plus ETSU is just a great place. Please Mister Noland....continue on. ETSU loves you.

He has unfinished business in Johnson City, though he was a candidate when they hired Cheek.
Dave Hart isn't going anywhere. Football is well on its way to recovery, basketball while not good was better than anticipated. Academics have improved all the way around and he has gone over the top in implementing strategies to try and prevent anymore domestic assaults, even though there's not been one single felony conviction.
Cheek has 4-5 more years, they'll get through the lawsuit, let things die down, then make changes.

Pretty sure ETSU was Noland's testing ground for UT to begin with. Those were the rumors when he was first announced as a candidate. I don't think it's much of a secret that he wants the UT job.

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.

Yeah - it would take more than $100K for Noland to revamp his wardrobe to Orange and White from all his Blue and Gold. The man has some serious style.

The money isn't the issue as much as the prestige in name. The right person at UTK can jump into politics pretty easy. The timing just isn't right with the lawsuit going on. UTK is locked in place until that's over with barring one of them getting Cancer or some other catastrophic illness.
