Say what you will, Mike Hamilton has been there for Junior, financially speaking.
… According to athletic director Mike Hamilton, the Vols agreed to a three-year, $300,000 deal to bring Kippy Brown back to UT as a wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator.
Based on what I can find, that means that more than half of Tennessee’s assistant coaches have signed three-year deals. That goes along with the highest total assistant coaches payroll in all of college football. Toss in the Laner’s $7.5 million buyout, and you start to wonder how UT could afford to consider a coaching change (assuming circumstances warranted that, of course). Interesting way to obtain job security, that’s for sure.
