I can’t wait to hit the ground running and to see what the future holds for this program. Go Vols!”

Great hire for the Vols. Expect improvements in the recruiting with josh. He’s been coaching close by in Blacksburg, and crushed it recruiting at VT. There may not be a bigger workhorse coach in the country. Go Vols!
