You steal our recruits...We steal your recruiter!!!

It seems that a lot of UT fans are very freaked out about the possibility of losing RB/ST coach Eddie Gran. For those of you that aren't familiar with him, here's the link of his bio from the UT website

http://www.utsports.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/gran_eddie00.html

Evidently this guy is a stellar recruiter, and has had a hand in coaching some of the better running backs in college football history (Cadillac, Rudi Johnson, Ronnie Brown, and someone said he coached Deuce as well).

Anyways, it appears that Coach Coley isn't the only one moving quickly. Forgive me if this is old news, but it seems that this story is really finding some meat, and that the UT faithful are genuinely worried. Word on the street is that he is also a tenacious recruiter, and a solid coach to boot. Rumor is that he's only (Ha! "only) making $150K-$250K in Knoxville, and that his value outweighs his pricetag.

Lots of rumors about who could possibly step in as RC once James "the Hammer" Coley is promoted to OC.

Once again, if this is old news, forgive me, but this is another early XMas present IMO.
