Mike Hamilton resigned as athletic director of the University of Low, Down, Dirty Snitches today but he will remain in position through June 30. Wait… what?… I guess you can say today’s resignation is just a three weeks notice. Hamilton will still represent the university at the NCAA Committee on Infractions meetings later this week. That’s where UT will have to explain it’s violations in football and basketball to the important people with the big hammer. It seems like it would’ve been easier to go into the COI meetings without Hamilton and try to force some of the blame on him.
My question is: Why announce today if the guy’s going to keep his job for another three weeks? It’s just going to make things awkward for everyone.
An interim AD has not been discussed but I can bet ya those garbage truck workers in Knoxville are wanting to hear Phillip Fulmer’s name in the mix.
