Tennessee hires Derrick Ansley

Cross one name off the list of candidates for defensive coordinator should Matt House accept the job with the Kansas City Chiefs. GoVols247 is reporting that Tennessee has hired former Kentucky assistant Derrick Ansley, possibly as co-defensive coordinator.

Ansley was the defensive backs coach for the Oakland Raiders. Prior to joining Jon Gruden’s staff, he was the defensive backs coach at Alabama under defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, who is now the Vols’ head coach. Of course, before going to Alabama, he coached Kentucky’s cornerbacks and eventually the entire secondary from 2014-2015.

Have fun wearing that puke inside of a pumpkin orange.

    Hey that matt House news is a REAL BACK BREAKER . We already had a slew of important defensive pieces leaving our program . Now it’s gonna take us an unforeseen miracle for us to be middle of the road decent in the sec. mainly because of the offensive powers that exist in our league . We really gotta bring it on offense if we wanna help ourselves . No more sitting on the ball like we leaned on 85% of the time . It’s gonna be a long season if we play the same way we did last season

    Good grief. Now isn’t time to jump ship. Kentucky should attract top candidates because of last year’s success, being in the SEC and Mitch’s commitment to pay great salaries to assistant coaches. Coach Stoops and Mitch just need to identify the best candidates and make a great hire.

    With enough money and full control of the defense Ansley isn’t off the table. Happens all the time. Mario Cristbol getting hirsd by Miami then jumping to Alabama not long after is a recent example.
