Desperate times call for desperate measures.

This is what happens when you can’t fire your starting quarterback:

Tennessee is making a change to its coaching staff just four games into the 2020 season. Jimmy Brumbaugh, who was hired in February, is out as the Vols’ defensive line coach, sources told GoVols247 on Sunday night. The former assistant coach at Colorado, Maryland, Kentucky and Syracuse replaced Tracy Rocker, whose contract was not renewed after it expired and is now at South Carolina following two seasons at Tennessee, and also held a co-defensive coordinator for the Vols.

The Vols have lost their past two games to Georgia and Kentucky after starting the season with wins against South Carolina and Missouri.

Brumbaugh previously worked with Tennessee defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley for three seasons (2013-15) at Kentucky and played in the SEC at Auburn. In February he signed a two-year deal at Tennessee with a base salary of $650,000.

That should make all the difference in Tennessee’s game this week against **checks notes** Alabama.

    Pruitt is just a balder version of Booch, with less silly marketing.

    Chris Weinke is next.

    I agree with him, if they aren’t doing their job, let them go!!!! Spurrier owed his success to not falling in love with his assistants. Mark Richt is another example of a coach who never fired his assistants and it cost him his job.

    Was there an escape goat clause in Brumbaugh’s contract?

      By no means misconstrue these comments….might be the best move for this particular coach, hell, the bammers are always looking for analysts they can pay 25-50 grand a year (or less)…looking at the ut schedule, an all out dumpster fire might be right around the corner….


  5. Pruitt is already at the “fire someone… ANYONE” state of his career.

    I already missed on the prediction about our D and it looks like I’m also gonna miss on my prediction that Tennessee will be our biggest threat. Unless this guy was canned for other reasons.
