What does this mean?  Suspension or could he possibly be out?

Hmmmm.... Interesting to say the least.  Sure thought he did well with what he had to work with.  Not sure what this is about?

Nevermind I see now. Yea it does not look good for Mr. Tyndall.  Hmmm any idea who they would pursue?  Marshall is gonna field a lot of phone calls when he gets done in the dance.

They were saying on the local radio yesterday Tennessee needed to go ahead and make decision because if they wait until July or August to see what NCAA says, there won't be any good coaches on the market if a change is needed. Could this be TN's way of being proactive?

Tennessee has a lot of potential as a program. Good recruiting base, facilities, and support. If they get a good coach who can stay there and provide stability, they will be a tough program to face.

Here is the story going around Nashville:

Donnie Tyndall (who had a brush with the NCAA when he was at Morehead State) did some illegal things to get players in school at Southern Miss. Nobody has exactly what the story is -- sounds like not a show-cause but a combination of part-season suspension and scholarship reduction that would follow Tyndall -- whoever employed him would suffer the scholarship cut for a year or two.

Not sure men's basketball is going to get an AD fired at Tennessee, but sheesh what a cluster.

According to this story, the "power people" at UT are fully behind Tyndall . . . and unless the infractions are more severe than expected, they want to keep him in Knoxville.

I'm thinking it's a self imposed on Tyndall, which allows him to keep his job and the NCAA to not come down on him as hard.  I'd be perfectly happy with this! Think the guy is a sleezeball and not great, so I don't think UT going much of anywhere with him.

Xs and Os wise, he is a good coach.  He got a late start in recruiting and still finished at .500.  The sanctions hanging over his head have affected his recruiting and with Richardson leaving next year is shaping up to be a dumpster fire for them.

Jimmy Hyams of Sports Radio WNML 990 in Knoxville is reporting Dave Hart met with Donnie Tyndall this morning and did fire him.  WNML is the flagship station of the Vol Network, so they would not report this without really good sourcing.

Unbelievable mismanagement by them. Hard to fathom how they went from the Sweet Sixteen a year ago to this. Their last coach went to Cal, a lateral move at best, and now they've fired his replacement only one year in.

The next guy has a long road ahead. Probably a mid-major type. Will be fortunate if he's still the coach in four years.

Jimmy Hyams just reported that the reputation of the program will make it hard to attract any big names.  As for Pearl, there was more than the lying about the cookout, that got him fired.  Moneywise an up and comer - mid-major coach or assistant at a upper school will be all they can afford.

Hyams also said UT has a point guard recruit on campus this weekend for his official visit.  Tyndall was in New Mexico yesterday recruiting when Hart had his conference call with the NCAA.  He then called Tyndall home for a meeting this morning and at that point fired him.  Press conference @ 11:00 Knoxville time.

They finished paying Fulmer and Pearl; Cuonzo left on his on, so no money to him.  The old baseball coach had a low buyout and they've been through with Buzz Peterson for years.  Not sure how long Dooley's buyout was, but he did have a nice one courtesy of the old AD.  In addition, since Hart has been AD, he had fired over 20 athletic department employees - a number from the old women's department and this has resulted in lawsuits and in paying early retirements.  Their department has not been in good fiscal shape for several years.  Some in media are saying they will NOT have to pay Tyndall since it is for cause; others think they may have to pay him a small buyout.

Tennessee is my favorite "other" SEC state because the people are more like us, IMO, than the rest of the SEC (and I just like the state).  HOWEVER, when it comes to UT fans....delusional only skims the surface.  H O R R I B L E

They had his coaching cousin - Buzz Peterson - years ago.  The last time I saw them play under Buzz they had 4,000 in 25,000 seat arena to barely beat some team from the A-Sun just a week or so after Chattanooga beat them.
But Pelphrey type is about what they can afford and with a football focused AD, someone like him will be who they probably go after.

Running off Cuonzo Martin has come back to bite them.  Martin wasn't the greatest coach in the world, but he kept the program clean and was trending upwards every year he was there, including a sweet 16 run.  He wasn't a bad recruiter either, had they left him alone and just let him coach, instead of thinking they were Kentucky and should be competing for a national championship every year, they would have been in a much better situation right now.

As it stands, the best case scenario for them is a mid-major up and comer, and it's not even going to be a top notch up and comer that program isn't remotely attractive at the moment.  My guess is they'll get like Louisiana Tech's head coach or some guy of that caliber.
