RE: UTC AD to resign
From being a front runner to the UT job to resigning from UTC? Very strange- I imagine we will learn much more about this over the coming months.

There are some in the Knoxville area that feel he was never a serious candidate for AD, although qualified. The way UT works, they were never going to hire him (or Fulmer).

RE: UTC AD to resign
Which is why UT keeps making bad coaching hires. If I was their chancellor, I would be outraged at all the "mistakes" they have made hiring football, basketball, and women's basketball coaches. It has cost that university MILLIONS (and I'm mainly referring to buy-outs here), which is why I would never support them financially. Waste of money, plain and simple. I think the Currie hire was bad as well, but time will have to tell.

Then there's this:

If our AD did this, I would be glad he's gone. Bad decision making on his part.

I don't mean to get into a detailed discussion about UT, but I don't think they have had too many bad hires. I think the women's coach was a solid replacement for Pat Summit, I think Pearl, Cuonzo Martin, and Rick Barnes were all good hires for men's basketball (obviously should have done a better job with the Tyndall hire), and Lane Kiffin as well as Butch Jones were good football hires. Obviously Dooley wasn't ready for the job.

UT fans are never satisfied with anything, and the pressure to fire coaches before they should be fired is what costs them the buyouts.

Whatever it is at UTC, it's certainly interesting that in the last 18 months roughly their three highest profile positions in the athletic department have ALL turned over. Maybe it's all completely unrelated, perhaps I watch too much House of Cards, but that just seems a little too fishy.

I'm gonna have to disagree here. We can agree on Tyndall and Dooley for sure, they shoulda seen the Tyndall stuff coming a mile away. I think Holly will be fired after this year, and no question both Barnes and Butch are on the hot seat, meaning they better have GREAT seasons, 9-3 for Butch and NCAA bid for Barnes. Good hires don't need great seasons in years 3 or 5 to keep their jobs. And if you think Kiffin was a good hire, then we are looking at totally different criteria to judge.

Oh, and they gave Fulmer an extension 6 months before they fired him! They're spending money like drunken sailors down there. I want no part of it.
