Joe Shad from ESPN is reporting
"If you can handle the PAIN of discipline, you will never have to deal with the Pain of Disappointment" - Coach Nick Saban
Great news. Let the mediocrity continue!
Kind of glad....wanted to keep KS for at least one more year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good hope the KS coach talk is over for this year.
Mike & Mike just reported the Jones hiring as well....first thing I thought was hoping the Kirby derby was done as well.
Didnt Dooley beat Jones by 50 last year? If you listen to vol fans he is the next Coach Saban
Haha fail by Dave hart
What a joke.
So Jones isn't holding out for Kelly to leave ND ? He's only followed him to the last two places.
jones is a good coach. is everyone forgetting that notre dame took a coach from cincinnati as well? will jones be successful? who knows, but to assume he won't is a mistake.
Really hope Smart and Nuss hang around for the ride
This! Haha the "Kirby Derby". I like it.
Not a terrible hire by the Vols. I'm sure he wasn't on their original list but a pretty good hire considering where they are as a program. They, like Auburn, had to settle.
I think it is a great hire for them. guy is a proven coach who has won at multiple schools. His first real test will to see who he hires for his defensive coordinator.
Difference between this hire and Auburn's hire. This guy interviewed at two other BCS schools in the past week...how many did malzahn interview at?
Not a good fit for UT, Jones has walked into pretty good situations in the past with CMU and Cincy both programs having been built by Brian Kelly. He's an awful recruiter, something that should always be the number one priority for the UT coach. He runs the spread too, so if this doesn't workout it should set UT back a while.
Runs a spread offense, btw. I'm no fan of the spread.
Trivia note: Former Bama WR TJ Weist is on his staff at Cincinnati as WR/Recruiting Coordinator.
I'm not sure this is that bad of a hire by the Vols.
thanks for posting!
