The Vols have hired a mere child to become their next football coach. Lane Kiffin, all 33 years of him, will be named Vol coach on Monday according to a number of sources. Kiffin is rumored to be bringing with him Ed Orgeron to coach defense and be the recruiting coordinator, an important move for a program that must recruit nationally to succeed. Kiffin will be the youngest head coach in SEC history and will bring his supposed X and O genius to Knoxville and attempt to hang with the big boys. I like this hire a lot, but it is a risk. Take a guy who has never been a head coach in college and give him the key to one of the biggest Rolls Royces in the game. We shall see how it ends up.
And Phil, if you are interested in the age discrimination lawsuit, holla at the Jones and the Bruce.
