He was definitely suspended (I think more than once) and eventually dismissed from the team. I would think if he was allowed to participate in Pro Day, then it wouldn't make sense that he was sabotaged by anyone at UT. It's more likely that he broke the rules and had to deal with the consequences and now he wants to look back on it and make excuses. He's probably like a lot of people who refuse to take responsibility for their mistakes and always want to play the victim and blame someone else. And I don't think he ever had a chance at a long term NFL career, even though he seems to think otherwise.
Butch Jones is a con man. He has that car salesman talk game he could sell a ticket to hell to a priest. But had no football knowledge what so ever. Never should he have been coaching in a major P5 school and what's really sad is another major P5 school will hire him simply because he is under saban!
I'm sorry but if I'm being honest here... IF he ever received a degree from UT THEN we might need to investigate a few tutors. . Also... as the saying goes...Life is only 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we respond! Responding like this can ONLY make things worse for him. If someone is looking for pity from me by playing the blame game... then I'm just not your man!
I guess Saban feels like paying Bozo Botch $35,000 to wash his car and walk his dog is worth it. Notice Saban has had major staff turnover since Botch has been there and Saban hasn't offered him a position job. Saban knows the truth.
This has been a favor to Sexton who is the agent to both....On the cheap.
