I grew up in Central Florida and always have followed UCF athletics. This is a gut punch to that entire athletic department. Those 2 have done a great job and Tennessee is lucky to have them. With that said, it is a huge undertaking as that program is a complete mess.

So it was a "two for one deal" as Purple predicted :clapping (just with a different university). :lol:

I can't find anything to confirm that. If true, that would be Tennessee people excited about a Mormon athletic director, which is more than fine by me . . . :wink:

ETA: Just found this.

https://www.espn.com/college-football/s ... c-director

"A former college basketball player at Towson University and Notre Dame, White is the son of former Duke athletic director Kevin White. Danny White's brother, Mike, is Florida's head basketball coach."
Nice catch Rubicon. I was assuming it was the former Cowboy's QB too.
Me too... :D

Someone posted on Twitter that the next step for UCF is to hire Kevin Steele as interim Coach.

Don't be surprised if the caravan from Orlando to Knoxville continues. UCF has a couple of really good QBs on their roster.

My #sources told me this was going to happen. You all were just the ones who assumed it was LU




(That’s my story and I’m sticking to it :D )

As an experienced flack, I appreciate the spin. :lol:

Obviously we are clear & free until next winter. I think most of us will be watching very closely to see if the Pirate makes serious improvement this fall in Starkville after clearing the decks before the 2020 season. If not, that becomes perhaps the hottest seat in the SEC in a place where the temptation for Coach Freeze would likely be significant.

I’m pulling for The Pirate! He seems like a good fit there too oddly enough

This seems at a surface level look at the SEC hot seats, about the only possible chance for next year. You would think they will give him at least a couple of years to get some players to fit his offense. I for one am pulling for him.

I wanted the Minnesota gophers to hire him a few years ago when he wanted the job but I watched a video of a locker room speech and he swears a lot, I wouldn't want him leading men being a bad example for them

The local fishwrap here in Houston just mentioned that Texans Pro Bowl OT Laremy Tunsil has been working out on campus at LU. The obvious connection being his college coach. I love seeing Coach Freeze leveraging his relationships into influence.

This probably has more to do with Dom than HF, but it's pretty cool either way.

You are right. Kansas probably the worse P5 job. It's so bad their OC took the OC job at Middle Tennessee State.

Stupid move by Kansas. Unless Les wanted out. 7-8 year old allegations? Really? Good luck finding a coach.

Agreed. Soon they will go back and see if someone kissed a girl that didn't want it in the 3rd grade. I think les miles should sue for remaining money in his contract because he wasn't fired for cause at Kansas, his "cause" was many years ago at another institution.
