Donnie Tyndall out at Tennessee

Here’s some breaking news to get your morning rolling. According to various outlets, Tennessee head coach Donnie Tyndall just got fired.

Although not confirmed, the firing most likely is a result of the ongoing NCAA investigation into Tyndall’s tenure at Southern Miss. The NCAA is investigating the program forĀ improper financial aid provided to non-scholarship players, along with academic misconduct.

    Could they re-hire Bruce Pearl? Would they?

    I think Billy Gillispie is looking for a job.

    If they fired him because of new evidence of improper benefits at Southern Miss, that’s okay. If there is no new evidence, Tennessee knew about the allegations all along, so shame on them. Donnie Tyndall did a fantastic job for the Vols this season, and I hope he can land another coaching job somewhere. As for where Tennessee goes from here, they want Bruce Pearl, at least the fans do. But would he leave Auburn after only one year? And would the powers that be on Rocky Top want him back? After all, he violated some NCAA rules while there. It wouldn’t look too god for Tennessee, if they fire one coach for rules violations, and hire another who has previously violated rues.

      Yes I was just ready to comment that “and North Carolina gets a pass?” But you beat me to it!

    Tennessee is a much better place to coach than Alabama… Alabama’s hopes to hire Greg Marshall just took a huge shot

      Alabama’s roster >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Tennessee’s roster.
      Bama is the better job

    He looks more and more like a muppet every time I see him.
