    I've heard that too. Wow, what a coup that would be for them. They all run the same offense, they're on the same page from day one. After all, it was Chow that taught the O to Kiffin.

    Quote from ESPN on Chow:

    "In another part of the blockbuster staff changes, a deal is being finalized for longtime offensive coordinator Norm Chow to return to the Trojans in the same capacity, sources close to the school told ESPN's Shelley Smith.

    The current UCLA offensive coordinator held that position with USC from 2001-04. He was also the coordinator at Brigham Young from 1973-99, at NC State in 2000 and with the Tennessee Titans from 2005-07."

    While it was a little bit of a punch to the gut when I logged on ESPN is minute ago...I have to say I never thought he would stick around very long. He just seems like that kinda guy. I suppose it might as well be sooner rather than later. Hope Tennessee can find a good coach.

    here is the 1 minute long press conference kiffin did right in front of a UT helmet. shows what kind of person he really is. didn't even allow questions to be asked.

    I'll be honest I truly feel betrayed right now man. I'm a diehard UT/Titans fan and I really felt that Kiffin and Co. were going to do great things at UT. Like u said BigTitan he and Orgeron are Great recruiters and they bring talent nomatter if they are a 3 or a 5* they see it and bring it to the school. As of yesterday UT had the 6th ranked recruiting class in the nation and it's not even NSD. 2 of our 4* recruits and weren't even the most highly touted shined in the AAA Game this past wknd and this class was full of this caliber. Now we are coachless (again) and this top 5 recruiting class we would've ended up with will be no more and this will hurt for a couple yrs at the least. I can honestly say that I feel betrayed and am extremely hurt by this action. It's a sad day for Volnation...Go Titans!

    They're going to need to b/c this is the kinda thing that can set you back 3-4 years if dam's not fixed, which will be hard since the floodgates have pretty much already opened

    this comment got me the most from ESPN:

    shows how important continuity can be to kids coming to play for coaches and why it hurts teams who switch off coaches often

    I am so worried about this I dont think I'll be able to sleep tonight. I mean how can someone live with theirselves knowing they are spreading and embracing lies throughout everyone you almost come in contact with. I mean all the work all the f'n damn time they put in for UT in recruiting, etc. and saying that they weren't going anywhere and how they were building a championship program, going to the men's bball game and hugging Bruce Pearl genuinely after they beat the #1 ranked KS, I mean how can he look himself in the mirror into his own eyes and truly feel in his heart that he is a sincere person. And I'm not bashing him for "bettering himself" u can't blame a man for bettering themselves but I'm pretty sure his coaching contract wasn't small. I'm talking about spreading lies.
