My latest trip took me to Knoxville and the University of Tennessee Spring Practice.
Head Coach Butch Jones was impressive with a masterful plan of situational football. He will have plenty of video for teaching and future reminders. He had coaching points for almost every position on offense and defense. He must have eyes in the back of his head! It was evident the team and staff responds to his leadership.
Defensive coordinator Bob Shoop leads the defense. I was also impressed by his strategies and tactics and how well they are taught by his coaches.
Additionally, I couldn’t help but notice the defensive line under the tutelage of Brady Hoke. He is passionate, intense, demanding and has an attention to detail that will pay off in the defensive line’s performance.
I believe the Tennessee Vols will be an exciting team to watch!
