I think a lot of people predicted that he would be fired in year three as a scapegoat. So, I do think a lot of it is just that. However, this past year showed that it was time for him to go. He had lost control of the program, for whatever the reason.

I would be interested to watch him attempt to run another program, just to see if he could really coach, given a good opportunity. I know the opinions here. So, no one needs to wear me out over MY opinion.

Said he was very distant unless it involved someone big!! im assuming he meant a booster or a recruit. Said that Harry was planning to just out right retire and get out of it because he was under contract. After he left, ND came calling, and thats where he landed. Of course we all know how that worked out for him this year.

This friend also said that he came out of retirement to take a HS OC job locally. The coach (Eric Epler) who lured him out of retirement was a GA under Jones at Cincy and said that this guy is the real deal. Thought it was a great hire for UT.

I guess time will tell. I hope hes right!!
welcome back to the SEC?

as all ways Go Lady Vols
