This quote from Mike Leach about the circumstances around Tennessee looking to hire him in 2017 is something else:
“Shortly after that, there was a coup d’etat at the University of Tennessee, and it was,” Leach said. “It was a coup d’etat. You can call it what you want, and I hope I don’t hurt anybody’s feelings at Tennessee, but it’s a fact. It was like something out of Shakespeare. All the sudden, they call home the AD, and en route they off him. Then the king, or the chancellor, who orders the offing of the AD because the guards are around him demanding that it be done in order to secure a position. Shortly after that, they off the president. Then the off the very chancellor who set it all in motion, allegedly. There was a whole power shift. Anyway, hopefully the ground for the good people at Tennessee is more stable now.”
Shakespeare wrote both tragedies and farces. I wonder which category Leach believes applies.
