Multiple sources tell me that Alcoa will name former Tennessee assistant Tony Jones as the new Alcoa boys basketball coach tomorrow morning.

Why not? What the hell else is the guy going to do? He didn't get a $1million to go away like BP. He got his 2 week notice and is probably collecting unemployment, which will run out. His head coaching experience is dubious at best. His name is linked to a cheating scandal. He's not the most well-spoken or well dressed guy, so a TV or radio contract is probably out.

this! I hope he uses it as springboard to better things. I like TJ. Yeah he made some mistakes but he desrves an oppurtunity to rebuild his image.

tough for Pearl's assistants to get college jobs anywhere right now. Great for Blount Co. sports though.

What kinda talent he working with at Alcoa. With all the football success, I assume they must have some players there. He could be successful since its AA (no memphis powers to deal with)

He got a period of salary. I believe it was a year.
