LOL if you think with Danny's connections that Tennessee gets any sanction.

That was fast.

Tennessee has a plan and it's getting executed UCFAST.

He's going to call his brother, the AD at FAU for a reference on Lane and then will bring Lane home.

re: Danny White - Nat'l Champion UCF AD HIRED as Tennessee's new AD
quote:

In his first athletics director job at Buffalo, White made an outside-the-box decision to hire Lance Leipold out of NCAA Division III football. Leipold has subsequently built one of the top programs in the Mid-American Conference. White was also responsible for hiring Bobby Hurley and Nate Oats in basketball, both of whom won big and went on to Power Five jobs.

At UCF, White took over a program in 2015 with some of the best resources in the American Athletic Conference but coming off an 0-12 season and a messy retirement of football coach George O’Leary. White quickly hired Scott Frost, and two years later the Knights were atop the league, ultimately making back-to-back New Year’s Six bowl games.

White has a reputation as an aggressive fundraiser and builder of facilities, but was perhaps best known nationally for marketing UCF as the national champions in 2017 after finishing a 13-0 season but not getting serious consideration for the College Football Playoff.

White has been outspoken on the inequity in the system for Group of Five teams in scheduling, at times even feuding on Twitter with other athletics directors and media members, while advocating for Playoff expansion. Now he will be on the other side of that debate as athletics director at one of the power programs.

Good hire for UTK.

Honestly surprised he is leaving Orlando.

Well, there’s some good news. This went much faster and better than I expected.

Hopefully the coaching search produces similar optimism.

The only negative that I see is that he went to Jesuit High School.
