Local Radio Station Makes Mess Of Already Embarrassing Coaching Search

Local Radio Station Makes Mess Of Already Embarrassing Coaching Search

Knoxville has been a whacky place to be during the past 72 or so hours.

After Sunday’s failed attempt to hire Greg Schiano and last night’s denial from Mike Gundy, Tennessee turned its eyes to Purdue coach Jeff Brohm. Brohm led the Boilermakers to a 6-6 regular season and their first bowl appearance since 2012,winning more conference games (four) in 2017 than the program had won in four years (three).

Talks escalated Wednesday morning, seemingly culminating in an agreement when local reporter Jimmy Hyams tweeted the following, then made a television performance on ESPN backing up the claim.

 

But, typical of the Vols’ coaching search so far, this didn’t prove to be true.

Naturally, the sports world reacted in kind.

THEN, local radio host Erik Ainge somehow thought tweeting his DM insults to Lane Kiffin was a good idea, and lemme tell ya, there were not many in agreeement.

It’s been a rough day.

Give us your Take...
