A Letter from Mike Hamilton


The following was emailed to a large community this afternoon (and will probably be in tomorrow's KNS) with respect to the resignation of Lane Kiffin and staff.  Although it's content is mostly fluff with little insight into the ongoings of the current search for a new HC, it...well...it is what it is.  Without further ado...

13 Jan 2010

Dear Vol Fans,

As you’ve heard Coach Kiffin resigned last night as our head football coach. While this does come at an inopportune time, remember that we are still Tennessee.  Tennessee Football has been around for more than 113 seasons.  We’ve been winning games for a long time and will continue to win games for a long time to come.  It’s a special place, rich in football tradition.  The University of Tennessee is among the top 10 winningest programs in college football, has six National Championships, 13 SEC Championships and has tremendous student-athletes that have and are representing us well.
We have already begun a search for the new head football coach of the Tennessee Volunteers and we’ll complete this process as quickly as possible to put the right person in place to lead our great football program forward in the months and years ahead.

Kippy Brown, who has been a critical piece of our success in years past, will serve as interim head coach until this process is completed.  Please be patient and know that we are giving our all for Tennessee and there is a bright future ahead of us.

Go Vols! 
   
Mike Hamilton
Men’s Athletics Director
University of Tennessee
