    Who is going to teach all 11 guys on our special teams to touch the man with ball and miraculously not tackle him, leading to a touchdown? That's rare coaching ability.

    I've heard Derrick Brodus is transferring to Wash. St. for continued tutelage. TIFWIW.

    The WW2 vet with no legs who my grandad had as a roommate in the nursing home could punt farther than Darr.

    Hearing on VQ that James Shibest, formerly of Ole Miss under Nutt and highly regarded Special Teams coach, may be interviewing with UT in the near future. He has also been a receivers coach as well.

    Mediocre hire at best. IMO.

    Or teach our kick returners – when you are running down the sidelines with only the kicker to beat, run out of bounds.

    His resume looks good. I have nothing else to base a ST coach hire on.

    Just a thought, but why the hell couldn't we hire Terry Fair for DBs and ST? He was a great DB and great returner as well.

    Meh. He has chosen a different path than high level coaching. All because someone is a Vol doesn't mean they should be given even greater consideration for a job. Find the best.
