Tennessee has a storied tradition of great players and great teams. I am very excited about the opportunity we have here, and I hope you are too. Since becoming part of the Tennessee family in December, I have been amazed at the energy and enthusiasm of our fans. I can’t wait to experience having more than 100,000 of you cheering our team on at one of the greatest venues in college football during our eight home games this fall. When I took this job, I set out to hire the best coaches in America, and I think we have assembled a group of coaches that are unrivaled anywhere in the country. As a staff, we have a total of 35 years NFL coaching experience, 118 years of collegiate coaching experience, 84 years of coaching experience at BCS conference schools and 32 years of coaching experience in the SEC. Those involved in our program have won 13 national titles, 36 conference titles and 48 bowl games, not to mention a Super Bowl. My staff and I are committed to recruiting the best student-athletes in the country to build on UT’s outstanding history. Our first recruiting class ranked in the top 10 nationally and included the No. 1 rated player in the nation. We continue to work tirelessly at bringing the top players to Knoxville. We want the 2009 team and all of our future teams to be disciplined and accountable in all areas of life. Our progress can already be seen in the way our players are handling their workouts and the level of dedication they are bringing to putting Tennessee football back on top. On the academic front, the football team had its highest GPA in four years last semester. The student-athletes are continuing that hard work in the classroom and dedicating themselves to their responsibilities as the season approaches. As a coaching staff, we hope to instill in our guys a standard of excellence in their work on and off the field. We are committed to putting this program back among the national elite, and we are dedicated to developing these young men into the best players and adults they can be. I appreciate the welcome you have given us, and I hope you will come out and support your team this fall.

Go Vols!

AT FULL

STRENGTH

Tennessee’s strength and conditioning program utilizes a 17,000 square foot facility and more than 50,000 pounds of weights.

The UT program stresses Olympic lifts and free weight exercises, all done at fast pace to simulate practice tempo. Workout groups always consist of fewer than 20 players and are directly supervised by a coach so that every rep counts.

The Vols’ football program is headed by former Volunteer track and field standout Aaron Ausmus with the assistance of Harry Galbreath, Steve Gortmaker and Dan Hamilton. Ausmus has more than 10 years of experience in college football strength and conditioning and was an integral part of Southern California’s 2003 AP National Championship. He has coached previously at Tennessee, USC, Idaho, Mississippi and North Texas. He has trained numerous NFL players including Carson Palmer, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, Troy Polamalu and LenDale White.

Galbreath is a former All-America offensive lineman for the Vols who played nine seasons in the NFL. He has worked closely with New England Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo and 2009 first-round draft pick Robert Ayers. Steve Gortmaker comes to the Vols after four seasons at South Carolina, with prior stops in his 10-year career at Oklahoma, Western Kentucky and Kansas. He played defensive back for the Sooners from 1995-98.

Dan Hamilton is in his fourth season at Tennessee and has coached Mayo and Ayers as well as 11 other current NFL players.

VOLUNTEERING IN THE The Tennessee football program has a long-standing tradition of giving back to the Knoxville community that has supported it so strongly over the years. The community service projects are not required of the athletes, but they have always been interested in participating. The players earn the right to go into the community through their actions on the field, in the classroom and on campus.

Tennessee football’s community service initiatives last season included: • Visiting the East Tennessee Children’s Hospital

• Assisting with the construction of a Habitat for Humanity home • Traveling to local elementary schools to read to children

• Hosting an April Play Day for kids at Thompson Boling-Arena • Volunteering at local animal shelters.

IN THE PLAYMAKERS

HANDS Lane Kiffin

Head coach Lane Kiffin, regarded as one of the brightest young offensive minds in football, brings his pro-style attack to Knoxville under the guidance of offensive coordinator Jim Chaney, architect of one of the most prolific offenses in the NCAA at Purdue from 1997-2005.

The UT offense under Kiffin will be tailored to the strengths of personnel recruited to Rocky Top and specialize in getting the best skill players the football as often as possible. Kiffin has a track record of doing so, as in both 2005 and 2006 his offenses featured either two 1,000-yard rushers or two 1,000-yard receivers along with a 3,000 yard passer. Success will not be sought solely through the air, as Kiffin and Chaney, a former NFL offensive line coach, will stress physicality in the run game over everything else.

The Tennessee offense will also vary from week to week with the intention of exploiting the weaknesses of the opponent, meaning there will be opportunities every Saturday for a different Vol to step up. 30

ACCOUNTABILITY AND PURSUIT

Tennessee defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, perhaps the greatest defensive mind in football and one of the most widely-respected teachers at any level, now dresses his famed Tampa 2 defense in Big Orange. Kiffin’s system is designed with simplicity in mind, so it can be learned and applied by new players as quickly as possible.

The Super Bowl winner stresses three things to players about his defense: Be Accountable, Pursue the Football, and Play Fast.

During Kiffin’s Super Bowl season in 2002, his defense led the NFL in total defense, points allowed and interceptions, becoming the first defense in 17 seasons to accomplish that feat.

A veteran of more than 40 years in coaching, Kiffin still expects his charges to have fun. He suggests his defenders “think less and just play.”

TEMPO, FIELD POSITION

Special teams coach Eddie Gran, one of the best in the profession at his craft, stresses four goals for his special teams combatants: Set the Tempo, Control Field Position, Control Momentum, Score Points. The Vols utilize an attack-oriented special teams game plan that aims to score touchdowns, breaks games open, utilize fakes and provide good field position for the offense and defense.

Tennessee will use its best players for special teams, eliminate mistakes and stress fundamentals while maintaining intensity.

The Vols will outwork, outsmart and intimidate in special teams situations.

2009 Begins Lane Kiffin Era

Tennessee fans waste no time sizing up their coaches, rendering preliminary judgment on the mentors long before they have sent their first squad into the heat of battle. Lane Kiffin was no exception. From the moment he took a few good-natured jabs at some of his Southeastern Conference coaching rivals, he was the people's choice in Big Orange Country. They were captivated by his feistiness, his light-hearted banter and, perhaps most of all, by his choice of sparring partners. Kiffin’s restructuring project achieved a milestone when more than 51,000 showed up for the spring Orange and White game at Neyland Stadium, which, like the football team, was also undergoing renovation. As the succession of Big Orange Caravan trips spread the hopeful message of Kiffin and his estimable staff, the enthusiastic reception coaches encountered reaffirmed athletic director Mike Hamilton's choice as Tennessee's 21st head coach. Now the fun part begins. We are all excitedly awaiting the identity of the Vols who will take the field to start the season opener Sept. 5 against Western Kentucky. As you may recall, Kiffin went into spring practice labeling all but one position wide open. He had awarded a job only to defensive ace Eric Berry. Nearing the start of fall camp, the head coach was still declaring most spots unfilled, awaiting August competition. As committed as the new staff is toward its rejuvenation goal, questions remain. One thing fans need not concern themselves with, though, is the age of the head coach, 34, making him the youngest man to head a football program on the major college level.

Eric Berry

The granddaddy of all things Tennessee, Gen. Bob Neyland, was still green when he was handed the Vols' reins at the same age as Kiffin in 1926. Nobody ever suggested Neyland proved too young for the job. So here we go again, kicking off another season we hope will enrich the proud history of University of Tennessee football. This fact-packed yearbook, meticulously assembled by Bud Ford, John Painter, Tony Williams and the able sports information staff, should bring you up to snuff on the players, coaches, records and traditions that comprise Vol football. Go get 'em, Lane Kiffin. Haywood Harris Tennessee Vols Historian Brandon Warren 2009 VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

OFFENSE

QUARTERBACK

A situation in which the two top quarterbacks from the previous year return sounds made to order for a banner offensive year. But realization that neither had taken command of the position by season's end casts a less optimistic view of the picture. At one time or another both Jonathan Crompton and Nick Stephens seemed like the man for the job, but the Vols' final 5-7 worksheet left the situation very much up in the air. New Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin and his staff indicated that determining the 2009 starter is a work in progress without an expected date for resolution. Crompton, a senior who started six games, finished with 86 completions in 167 attempts for 889 yards and four touchdowns. Stephens started the remaining games and had these statistics at the end of the season: 63-for-130, 840 yards and four touchdowns.

TAILBACK

Arian Foster spent too much of his senior season sidelined to apply the closing drive that would have made him Tennessee's all-time leading rusher. His departure has opened an opportunity for one of two returnees from 2008 action to take over principal ground-gaining responsibilities in the offense. When Foster was out in 2008, Montario Hardesty, Lennon Creer and Tauren Poole generally carried the ball. Creer opted to leave the team in April. Hardesty, a powerful senior with a straight-ahead running style, picked up 271 yards on 76 carries last season, and Poole, who will be a sophomore, ground out 86 yards on 22 tries. The two returnees battled throughout spring practice with January-enrollee Toney Williams,

each hoping to gain an edge. Little will be known about what the future holds at running back until fall drills signal the assembly of a full cast of job-seekers, including some highly-touted incoming freshmen.

FULLBACK

Fullback was a position once renowned at Tennessee for power running. Nowadays, it's a pass here, a run there, but mostly blocking. Fullback returnee Kevin Cooper, a junior who started all but one game last year, had seven catches for 42 yards and ran five times for 10 yards. The rest of the time, he was dispatched on blocking missions, responsibilities he will share this year with sophomore Austin Johnson, who earned a letter last season.

WIDE RECEIVER

Right off the bat, Lane Kiffin shifted tight end returnee Brandon Warren to wide receiver to help give substance to the position that includes Gerald Jones and Austin Rogers. The explosive Jones caught 30 passes for 323 yards, and Rogers had 14 for 189. Warren (10 catches for 85 yards at tight end) and Denarius Moore (11 for 271) will join Jones and Rodgers in providing experience. There is some serious rebuilding ahead among the wideouts, a group that at one time was so prodigious that the media with good cause dubbed

Luke Stocker

An abundance of talent at tight end is so well established that the Tennessee coaches felt free to switch two players away from the position to fill obvious needs.

Tennessee Wide Receiver U. One athlete who the coaches believe can take steps in that direction is Quinton Hancock, who was elected the most improved offensive player during spring drills. A group of three incoming Vols could also earn their way into the playing rotation in the fall.

TIGHT END

An abundance of talent at tight end is so well established that the Tennessee coaches felt free to switch two players away from the position to fill obvious needs. Junior Brandon Warren moved to wide receiver and Aaron Douglas switched to tackle. When the lanky and powerful Luke Stocker lunges extra inches to keep the ball in Tennessee's hands on third down, the importance of his receiving ability becomes clear. A two-year letterman, Stocker ranked sixth on the team last year in total receptions with 13 for 139 yards. Jeff Cottam, battling injuries throughout the spring, will surely contribute in the fall, while Ben Bartholomew, a fullback transfer, will learn the position and look to provide depth as the season progresses. All three Vols realize that when push comes to shove, their defining duty is to clear


defensive tackle. Those departures leave just two others with experience at end: Ben Martin, a two-year letterman, and Chris Walker, Martin's fellow junior. Walker was named the most improved defensive player in spring drills and was described as “unblockable” on multiple occasions by the coaching staff. Others vying for playing time include Willie Bohannon, Steven Fowlkes and junior college transfer Rae Sykes. UT’s searches for defensive ends frequently begin on shaky ground but almost always wind up with happy endings. Dan Williams

THE VOLS

DEFENSIVE END

The Vols have been so formidable at defensive end that it's almost considered a given that the same will apply in 2009. But Robert Ayers, who stood head and shoulders above his teammates last year, is gone, taking his 15 tackles for loss with him, and Wes Brown, the starter on the other side, has moved inside to

REVIEW

This fall, with veteran center Josh McNeil and mature signal-callers on hand, the center-quarterback snap should be exactly that – a snap. That is, of course, unless walk-on Cody Sullins takes the starting job from the three-year starter. The two exited spring practice bracketed on the depth chart, and Sullins earned the start in the annual spring game. McNeil started every game last season and knows what to do, a talent that is celebrated by quarterbacks Jonathan Crompton and Nick Stephens. Sullins has come on strong, though, and the coaches consider both options more than viable entering fall camp.

The Tennessee coaches are trying to assemble an offensive line with the speed and agility to carry the run game and enough staying power for the quarterback to remain upright. Chris Scott is a 2008 returnee, one of three regulars from last year's team hoping to call on their experience to enhance their value in Lane Kiffin's first year at the UT controls. Scott was in the opening lineup for every game last season, UCLA through Kentucky. Depth at the tackle position was strengthened by the decision to move Aaron Douglas over from tight end. He now is in competition with Jarrod Shaw for a starting job on the right side of the line. Filling out the roster at tackle are sophomore William Brimfield and redshirt freshman Dallas Thomas. Further reinforcements could come from two offensive linemen in the enrolling class of newcomers.

Vladimir Richard

Vladimir Richard moved into the starting contingent at left guard midway through the 2008 season. He held onto the firstteam job the rest of the season and in spring practice gained the confidence of the first-year Vols coaching staff. Although Jacques McClendon started only the first six games in 2008, his return gives the Vols a pair of guards who know what it takes to be a starter. From their vast experience in the trenches, Richard and McClendon give the Vols a leg up on opponents dealing with less seasoned personnel. Also in the mix at guard are sophomore Cody Pope, junior letterman Jarrod Shaw, and Cory Sullins, a senior walk-on and letterman who could earn playing time on the left side.

LINEBACKER

52

The return of Rico McCoy assures Tennessee strong representation at one of the linebacker slots, a position group weakened by the loss of two starters from 2008 in Ellix Wilson and Nevin McKenzie. McCoy, a seasoned defensive star, opened every game at weak linebacker in 2008 and ranked as the team's No. 2 tackler with 87 tackles, 3 1/2 for lost yardage and one sack. McCoy could be the heartbeat of a defense that scored well statistically last season but suffered the fate of being part of a 5-7 football team. At the other positions, the coaches are trying to develop players who can start or serve as backups. Junior Nick Reveiz, who has demonstrated a flair for mayhem in a kickcoverage role in the past, made a strong bid to start during the spring, as did tackle specialist LaMarcus Thompson, also a junior. Others competing at linebacker include junior Savion Frazier, sophomores Chris Donald, Josh Hawkins and Daryl Vereen and freshmen Herman Lathers and Nigel Mitchell-Thornton.

CORNERBACK

From the moment he first set foot on the football field, Dennis Rogan has been a key performer for 2009 VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Tennessee. Not only did he bring competence to the kick return game, but he moved into the right cornerback position with telling results. He notched 53 tackles last season, bringing a star element to a secondary that is already heralded mainly because of the presence of Eric Berry at free safety. Finding a replacement for the departed DeAngelo Willingham at the other corner spot will be a primary order of business for the Vols coaching staff this fall. Among the numerous candidates for action will be senior Marsalous Johnson, junior Brent Vinson -- who was a starter in 2007 – and sophomores Anthony Anderson, Art Evans, C.J. Fleming, and Stephaun Raines. Johnson, Evans and Vinson have seen enough action that they will arrive at fall camp as returning lettermen.

Dennis Rogan

SAFETY

One of the most outstanding performers ever to wear the orange, offense or defense, 2009 or any other season, is Eric Berry, destined for Vol immortality after only two seasons. Heading into his junior year as a sure pick for preseason All-America, he already boasts gleaming statistics: 158 tackles (101 primary hits and 57 assists), 10 1/2 tackles for loss, three sacks, three fumble recoveries, 22 passes defensed and 12 interceptions. He was elected Defensive Player of the Year in the SEC by the Associated Press and the league’s coaches. As McCoy can

be the heart and soul of the linebacker corps, Berry already has arrived at that station for overall defense. He is also on course to break school and NCAA records for interceptions and interception return yardage. The departure of Demetrice Morley during spring drills leaves question marks at the other safety spot, with a pair of freshmen, Rod Wilks and Prentiss Waggner, vying for playing time during spring drills.

SPECIALISTS

One of the revered names in Tennessee football, the Colquitt

family, will not have a representative on the field for the first time since the 2000 season. Britton Colquitt, with his 43.4 yards-per-punt average, has moved on, leaving the punts to Chad Cunningham, who notched 39.5 yards per boot last season in Colquitt's absence. Daniel Lincoln, who connected on 10 of 18 field goal tries last year, returns, hoping to regain the form that made him an All-America his freshman season. Dennis Rogan is on pace to become one of Tennessee’s all-time best kick returners, but the influx of skill-position newcomers may mean that all kick-return positions are up for grabs in fall camp. Rogan averaged 4.8 yards per return on punt returns and 24.9 yards per return on kickoffs last season. Gerald Jones’ averages were 10.0 and 38.3 for punts and kicks, respectively.

HEAD COACH

Lane Kiffin

UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE

Head Coach

64

From his introductory press conference — the day he began “rolling my sleeves up and going to work” — Lane Kiffin’s guiding principle for Tennessee football has kept him mindful of its storied past. And focused squarely on its future. Kiffin, who becomes just the third head coach at UT in the last 33 years, had a plan for Tennessee’s expectations even before he made his arrival in Knoxville. His blueprint for an all-star coaching staff already has come to fruition. And that team of one-time rivals has begun formulating its platform for championship competition not only in the rabid Southeastern Conference but across the nation. "I'm not promising you how many wins, how many championships; I can't do that,” Kiffin said back on Dec. 1, 2008. “But I want the Tennessee family to know this: no one is going to outwork me as a head coach and no one is going to outwork our staff. That's the promise I'm giving you. The wins will come after that. You're going to see it; you're going to feel it throughout the state. It starts today.” Kiffin joins the Vols as the former head coach of the Oakland Raiders and former offensive coordinator at Southern California under head coach Pete Carroll. Kiffin’s turn with Oakland was his first head coaching assignment, and his concepts moving the football paid immediate dividends. The season before Kiffin’s arrival, Oakland was last in the NFL in scoring (10.5), total offense (246.2), yards per play (4.2), touchdown passes (7) and turnover margin (minus-23). The Raiders ranked 31st in passing offense and 29th in rushing. In 2007, Kiffin improved offensive production to 17.7 points per game — an increase of more than a touchdown — and rushing to 130.4 yards per game. The sudden improvement was felt throughout the league. "Coach Kiffin is a perfect fit,” Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said. “He brings a wealth of experience he's accumulated at a very young age. He has a brilliant football mind, and there's no doubt in my mind he's going to be successful.” Those ideas were formulated at Fisher’s alma mater, USC, where Kiffin presided over the vaunted offensive system that featured a long, medium and short-range passing game coupled with a power running attack. He began as an assistant from 2001-04, then was promoted to passing game coordinator in 2004 and served as offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for 2005 and 2006. USC led the nation in offense in 2005 and in both of his years as recruiting coordinator had the best recruiting classes in the nation. Those efforts, 2009 VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

along with his play-calling, structure and offensive design, helped the Trojans to back-to-back national college football championships and produced two Heisman Trophy winners — Matt Leinart in 2004 and Reggie Bush in 2005. “He was the mastermind for our offense, which was very productive at USC,” Bush said of his former coach. “He has a lot of coaching experience. He has a great foundation and I think he’s going to be a great head coach.” Under Kiffin’s leadership in 2006, the Trojans finished first in the Pacific10 Conference in passing efficiency, produced two 1,000-yard receivers and a 3,000-yard passer. In 2005, Kiffin was named one of the nation’s top 25 recruiters and served as coordinator for an offense that ranked in the top six nationally in every offensive category. The Trojans scored 50 points a school-record seven times. Kiffin’s play-calling and offensive design enabled Bush to capture the 2005 Heisman and the Trojans to become the first school to have a 3,500yard passer, a pair of 1,000-yard rushers and a 1,000-yard receiver. In 2004, Kiffin coached on a staff that led Southern California to its second straight national title. He was in charge of a passing attack that helped Leinart win the Heisman with 3,322 yards passing and 33 touchdowns. Kiffin also mentored All-America wide receivers Mike Williams and Dwayne Jarrett, along with such notable USC and NFL pass-catchers as Keary Colbert, Steve Smith and Kareem Kelly. As the recruiting coordinator in 2005-06, Kiffin helped the Trojans land back-to-back No. 1-ranked recruiting classes, both of which helped Southern

Cal to maintain their dominance in the Pac-10 and nationally. The Trojans were a modest 6-6 in 2001, Kiffin’s first year on the staff, but went a remarkable 59-6 over his final five seasons in Los Angeles. That magical run under head coach Pete Carroll resulted in five straight BCS bowl appearances — twice in the BCS National Championship Game. "I have no doubt that Lane will do great things at UT,” Carroll said. “He handled all of our national recruiting at USC and brought us great players during our championship seasons. While serving as our offensive coordinator, we had the best offense in the history of football in 2005." Kiffin, who is 34, was the youngest head coach in modern NFL history and now stands as the youngest head coach in major college football. To help make the transition to Knoxville and the SEC, Kiffin assembled one of the most impressive assistant coaching staff’s in football history. His father, Monte, takes over as Tennessee’s defensive coordinator after 26 brilliant seasons in the NFL, the last 13 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kiffin was the longest tenured defensive coordinator in the NFL and, as developer of the Tampa Cover 2 defense, is generally considered one of the modern era's best defensive minds. “As a coach with a background in offense, it was imperative to find the best defensive coordinator we could,” Lane Kiffin said. “We feel we got the best defensive coach at any level. The addition of Coach Kiffin not only puts us in position to play great defense, but also gives us the ability to sign the best defensive players in the nation if they want to be prepared for the NFL

Six of Tennessee’s nine assistant coaches previously served as recruiting coordinators. Before going to USC, Kiffin was on the staff of Tom Coughlin’s Jacksonville Jaguars in 2000 as a defensive quality control coach under Dom Capers. The season before, Kiffin was a graduate assistant at Colorado State, working with the offensive line. Kiffin played quarterback at Fresno State for three seasons (1994-96), where his position coach was current California head coach Jeff Tedford. Kiffin began his coaching career at his alma mater as a student assistant, working parts of two seasons with quarterbacks, wide receivers and defensive backs. "Lane Kiffin has prepared himself through hard work and preparation and has become one of the brightest minds in football,” Tedford said. “He understands what it takes to reach a championship level and has the passion and work ethic to make it happen." Kiffin takes over the Vols’ helm from Phillip Fulmer, who compiled a 15252 record for Tennessee over 17 seasons that included two SEC crowns and the 1998 BCS national championship.

Ed Orgeron returns to college football as Tennessee's assistant head coach, recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach. The Larose, La., native spent last season as defensive line coach for the New Orleans Saints following more than 20 years in the collegiate game. Included in that tenure was a three-year turn as head coach at Mississippi after successful assistant coaching stops at Miami, Syracuse and Southern California. Vols head coach Lane Kiffin and Orgeron were assistant coaches together under USC head coach Pete Carroll from 2001-04. "When Lane was mentioned as a possibility for being the head coach at UT, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to join him,” Orgeron said. “When he got the best defensive coordinator in the history of college football to join him in Monte Kiffin, I knew this was a place that I wanted to come.” Orgeron long has been regarded as a premier defensive line coach and recruiter. He stockpiled talent during his three seasons at Ole Miss after playing a key role in the Trojans winning national championships in 2003 and 2004. Orgeron joined the USC staff in January 1998, took on the added responsibility of recruiting coordinator for the Trojans in 2001, and was then named assistant head coach in 2003. USC's 2002, 2003 and 2004 recruiting classes were ranked among the nation's top five, with the 2003 and 2004 groups listed by many as No. 1. Orgeron was named the 2004 National Recruiter of the Year by Sporting News and Rivals.com. “It was extremely, extremely important to get Ed Orgeron for two main reasons,” Kiffin said. “No. 1, he's the best defensive line coach in the country, NFL or college.

He then began his coaching career in 1966 at his alma mater under a pair of legends in Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne. Kiffin first helped command the Big Red defense to consecutive national titles in 1970 and 1971. When Osborne became Nebraska's head coach in 1973, Kiffin was named defensive coordinator. Kiffin moved to Arkansas as defensive coordinator under Lou Holtz from 1977-79, including one season as assistant head coach. The Razorbacks led the nation in scoring defense in 1977. Kiffin was head coach at North Carolina State from 1980-82, compiling a 16-17 record that included winning seasons in 1981 and 1982. From there, it was on to the professional ranks, including stops with the Green Bay Packers under Bart Starr in 1983, the Buffalo Bills from 1984-85, the Minnesota Vikings from 1986-89 and the New York Jets in 1990. Kiffin then returned to the Vikings, first in his initial professional role as defensive coordinator in 1991 before spending the 1992-94 seasons as inside linebackers coach. The 1995 campaign as defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints was Kiffin's last before moving to Tampa Bay.

HONORS

Monte Kiffin joined Tennessee’s staff as defensive coordinator after 26 seasons in the National Football League, the last 13 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kiffin was the longest tenured defensive coordinator in the NFL and, as developer of the Tampa Cover 2 defense, is generally considered one of the modern era's best defensive minds. "We feel we got the best defensive coach at any level," head coach Lane Kiffin said. “The addition of Monte Kiffin not only puts us in position to play great defense, but also gives us the ability to sign the best defensive players in the nation if they want to prepare for the NFL every year they are here." Kiffin was a catalyst for Tampa Bay's 2002 Super Bowl championship and coached units that ranked among the NFL's top 10 in both total defense and points allowed in 11 of his 13 Buccaneer seasons. His Super Bowl champion unit became the first since the 1985 Chicago Bears to lead the league in total defense (252.8 ypg), fewest points allowed (196) and total interceptions (31). Kiffin's crew continued its impressive play in the 2002 postseason, allowing just 16 points in victories over San Francisco and Philadelphia, before turning it up a notch in Super Bowl XXXVII. During the Buccaneers' 48-21 win over Oakland, Tampa Bay recorded a Super Bowl-record five interceptions, including three picks that were returned for touchdowns (also a Super Bowl record). Kiffin's charges added five sacks and allowed only 19 total rushing yards in capping one of the most dominating defensive performances in Super Bowl history. Kiffin now returns to the collegiate ranks at Tennessee, where, in fact, he previously considered a position with the Vols under then head coach Johnny Majors. "I was last here in 1983 when I was under consideration for the defensive coordinator's job," Kiffin said. "I chose instead the Green Bay Packers to start my NFL career, but this was an impressive place. Now that I'm back 25 years later, it's bigger and even more amazing than I remember.“ A native of Lexington, Neb., Kiffin was his state's High School Athlete of the Year in 1958. Then after playing collegiately for the Nebraska Cornhuskers from 1959-63 as both an offensive and defensive tackle, Kiffin sat out one season with a knee injury before taking a turn at defensive end for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League.

Jim Chaney arrives in Knoxville as offensive coordinator from the NFL ranks, having spent the past three seasons as assistant coach for the St. Louis Rams. The majority of Chaney’s coaching experience, however, comes from the collegiate ranks. His coaching and recruiting turns at Purdue, Wyoming and Cal State Fullerton made him the perfect fit for head coach Lane KIffin’s all-star coaching lineup. "Jim has been huge for us during this first offseason," Kiffin said. "On the field, he has the ability to oversee the entire offense and can coach all the positions. He’s also an experienced recruiter and relates well to today’s athletes on both the collegiate and professional levels." Chaney spent all three years in St. Louis coaching the offensive line before adding tight ends to his assignment sheet in 2008. During the 2007 campaign, Chaney helped coach an offensive line that led running back Steven Jackson to his third consecutive 1,000-yard season. Now, it’s back to the collegiate level of football players, although Chaney says that shouldn’t matter. “I can’t tell the difference, to be real honest with you. It is amazing to me that at any level of football when you walk out of the locker room, most football players love to play the game. When you love to do something, you are naturally inquisitive. They want to be coached. Our football team here wants to be coached, and it’s been a real satisfying thing.“ Possessing one of college football's best offensive minds, Chaney helped the Boilermakers lead the Big Ten in passing offense five times and total offense three. Purdue was ranked in the top 10 in the nation in total offense in six seasons, including 2000, when the Boilermakers ranked fourth. Quarterback Drew Brees, a second-round draft pick by the San Diego Chargers in 2001, was the NCAA total offense champion in 2000, averaging 349.1 yards per game, and received the Maxwell Award as the nation's outstanding player. Tim Stratton received the inaugural John Mackey Award as the nation's best tight end in 2000. More importantly, the 2000 combination of Chaney and Brees under head coach Joe Tiller led Purdue to its first Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl berth in 33 years. From 1997-2001, Chaney served as recruiting coordinator and helped the Boilermakers sign some of the country's top high school tal2009 VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Eddie Gran’s success coaching the running game and his familiarity with the Southeastern Conference made him a key component for head coach Lane KIffin’s initial Tennessee staff. Gran spent the last 15 seasons as an assistant under Tommy Tuberville, first at Mississippi and then Auburn. Gran coached running backs at both stops and added special teams duties to his Auburn assignment. He coaches running backs and special teams at Tennessee. If he produces the same success in the offensive backfield that he has for the past decade, Vols fans are in for a treat. Seven NFL running backs tutored under Gran at some point in their careers, among them Carnell Williams, Ronnie Brown, Rudi Johnson and Deuce McAllister. Williams was an All-America at Auburn and earned 2005 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, while Brown and McAllister were NFL first-round picks and Johnson earned 2000 SEC Player of the Year. Brown, Johnson and McAllister all have played in the Pro Bowl. Other former Gran-coached professionals who have earned elite status include John Avery, who went from Ole Miss to the NFL to stardom in the Canadian Football League; and Brandon Jacobs, an Auburn Tiger who has compiled back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the New York Giants. Under Gran’s guidance, Williams set the Auburn career record for rushing touchdowns and teamed with Brown to help Auburn lead the SEC in scoring offense in 2004. Kenny Irons picked up the following year where those two left off by gaining 1,205 yards — the fifth time in six years Gran coached a 1,000-yard running back. Gran also produced an SEC Special Teams Player of the Year in Auburn kicker John Vaughn, who won the award in 2006. That same season, Gran’s special teams units led the SEC in kickoff coverage, field goal percentage, PAT percentage and punting. Before coming to Ole Miss, Gran coached wide receivers at Idaho State in 1994 and Cincinnati from 1992-93. His first coaching job was at his alma mater, Cal Lutheran, from 1987-88, followed by a oneyear stint at Southeast Missouri State in 1989. A pair of graduate assistantships followed at East Carolina and Miami before returning to full-time capacity at Cincinnati. Gran played four seasons as a wideout at Cal Lutheran, graduating with a business administration degree in 1987.

James Cregg comes to Knoxville having spent his career coaching both sides of the line of scrimmage, experiences that are making a difference as he takes command of Tennessee’s offensive line positions. Cregg’s most recent coaching responsibility was for the last two seasons as an offensive line assistant with the Oakland Raiders. He helped the 2007 Oakland squad under then-head coach Lane Kiffin finish sixth in the NFL in rushing and inside-the-20 touchdown percentage. Before joining the Raiders, Cregg spent three seasons coaching the defensive line at Idaho. His final season of 2006 for the Vandals was under the tutelage of Dennis Erickson, now the head coach at Arizona State. Cregg coached the defensive line at Colgate from 2000-03, where, in his final season, the Division I-AA squad advanced undefeated to the national championship game. The Raiders’ title-game loss to Delaware ended a school-record 21-game winning streak stretching to the middle of the 2002 season. Colgate finished in the top 10 nationally in rushing defense during Cregg’s final two seasons with the Raiders. In 2003, Colgate also allowed only 16 passing touchdowns in 16 games played. During Cregg’s four seasons at Colgate, the Raiders won Patriot League titles in 2002 and 2003, with the team’s defense finishing first in the conference in total defense during both championship seasons. Cregg played for and later served as a graduate assistant under Colorado State’s Sonny Lubick. Cregg earned All-Western Athletic Conference honors as a senior offensive lineman for the Rams. He was a two-year starter on Colorado State’s offensive line and played in two bowl games in the mid-1990s. He then was named a graduate assistant at his alma mater from 1997-99.

David Reaves arrives in Knoxville after a successful tenure for most of this decade at South Carolina, where he served under head coaching legends Lou Holtz and Steve Spurrier. Reaves coached seven seasons for the Gamecocks, including the first two as a graduate assistant. After one year as defensive backs coach under Holtz and two seasons assisting Spurrier in coaching the Gamecock quarterbacks, Reaves was handed the full-time quarterback coaching duties in the spring of 2007. In addition, Reaves was given the duties beginning in 2006 of recruiting coordinator. He solidified his reputation as one of the top young recruiters in college football when the 2007 Gamecock signees formed a consensus top-10 class and were regarded as the most highly touted recruiting class in school history. Following the February signing day, Reaves was selected as one of the top 25 recruiters in the country by Rivals.com. In 2007, the Gamecocks threw for more than 3,000 yards and averaged 258.2 yards per game through the air with senior Blake Mitchell and redshirt freshman Chris Smelley sharing time under center. In 2006, the South Carolina quarterbacks, primarily Blake Mitchell and Syvelle Newton, combined to throw for 3,259 yards, an average of 250.7 yards per game. In 2005, Reaves assisted with the development of quarterback Blake Mitchell, who threw for 2,370 yards, the seventh-highest single season total in school history. Reaves spent his first full-time collegiate coaching season of 2004 working with the Carolina safeties. Reaves, who grew up in Columbia, S.C., served as an assistant head coach at Tampa (Fla.) Catholic High School for one season prior to coming to Carolina. He was team captain and a three-year starter at quarterback for Appalachian State University, where he helped lead the Mountaineers to three straight national playoff berths.

THE VOLS

Former Tennessee defensive back Inquoris “Inky” Johnson was a student coach during the 2008 season and earned a promotion in 2009 to graduate assistant. One of the most popular student-athletes in recent Tennessee history, Johnson played defensive back from 2004-06 before suffering a serious shoulder injury that ended his on-field career. But the Atlanta native has stayed close to the program and jumped at the chance to officially enter the coaching ranks under UT’s new regime. Johnson was a student coach last year and has been a key component in the transition to a new coaching staff. Johnson played in 23 games during his UT career, with eight starts. He finished with 10 career pass breakups and intercepted a pass in Tennessee's 2006 season-opening victory over California. One week later, Johnson suffered his shoulder injury late in a win over Air Force and has fought through three long years of rehabilitation. Now, he embarks on a new career path.

STAFF

Mitch Browning joins the Tennessee staff in 2009 as a graduate assistant coach for the offensive line. Browning comes to Knoxville with an impressive resumé. Before a oneyear stint last season as offensive coordinator at Syracuse, Browning coached 10 seasons at Minnesota, including seven as offensive coordinator. During that decade, Browning’s offense turned in eight consecutive campaigns of more than 2,000 yards rushing and 2,000 yards passing. He was a part-time assistant at North Carolina State during the 1980 and 1981 seasons under then-Wolfpack head coach Monte Kiffin, now UT’s defensive coordinator. Browning’s 29 years of coaching experience also includes stops at Miami (Ohio) and Ohio State as a graduate assistant, and Kent State and Kansas before his recent tenures with Minnesota and Syracuse. The 1979 Capital University graduate was a four-year starter at linebacker and an All-Ohio Athletic Conference selection as a senior. He is married to the former Jane Gray Baldwin.

REVIEW HONORS RECORDS VOLMANAC

Condredge Holloway, one of the most celebrated players in Tennessee Volunteers history, begins his 12th year on the UT staff having recently been inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. That made eight halls of fame for the former UT quarterback and AllAmerica shortstop, but the latest milestone was particularly significant. “To be honored by your home state is very special and personal,“ said Holloway, a Huntsville native. “I visited the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and was overwhelmed by the names of the athletes with ties to the state. The first bust I encountered was Joe Louis; the next two were Willie Mays and Hank Aaron. Just being in the same building with those men is quite an honor.” Holloway, 55, also has embarked on a new career path within the UT Athletics Department. He was named last year by athletics director Mike Hamilton to the new position of Assistant Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Relations & Lettermen. Holloway is maintaining a number of his current duties but primarily now serves as the department’s liaison with the Lettermen’s Club, assisting with reunions and other projects. Public appearances on behalf of the department, always a strong suit for the popular Holloway, continue to be a major part of his job description. Holloway also is the point person for numerous issues surrounding the conduct of a major college football program. He oversees disability insurance for the student-athletes and assists with the annual Pro Day inside the Neyland-Thompson Sports Center. And Holloway has taken great pride in helping former Vols find their niche in the business world by assisting them with contacts and employment opportunities following graduation. Holloway remains associated in the minds of Tennessee fans with the razzle-dazzle offense he quarterbacked during his undergraduate days of the 1970s. Nicknamed “The Artful Dodger,“ Holloway packed excitement into every play, whether it developed into a pass or a ground-gaining scramble. In his three seasons (1972-74) as a starter, Holloway directed the Vols to the 1972 Astro-Bluebonnet, 1973 Gator and 1974 Liberty bowls and an overall record of 25-9-2. He ended his career with the best

interception-to-attempt ratio in Tennessee history, throwing just 12 interceptions in 407 collegiate attempts. In addition to being the first black quarterback at Tennessee and in the Southeastern Conference, Holloway also was the first black baseball player in UT history. The outstanding prospect had been selected out of high school by the Montreal Expos with their first overall pick after catching the eye of Expos president John McHale and chief scout Mel Didier. Baseball legend Buck O’Neil also had been among those attempted to sign Holloway, who opted instead for a two-sport collegiate career and went on to excel on the diamond. Holloway garnered All-SEC and All-America honors as a shortstop in 1975 and finished with a .353 career average. This past off-season, Holloway — still the owner of UT’s longest hitting streak at 27 games — was selected to Tennessee’s All-Century Baseball Team, making him the only Volunteers student-athlete named to all-century squads in both baseball and football. Holloway left Knoxville and played 13 seasons in the Canadian Football League, compiling impressive numbers for the Ottawa Rough Riders (1975-80), Toronto Argonauts (1981-86) and British Columbia Lions (1987). He threw for more than 25,000 yards and rushed for another 3,167 while scoring 155 touchdowns. He was league MVP in 1982. After his professional playing days ended, Holloway returned to college and earned his UT degree. In addition to his recent induction in Alabama, Holloway is a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, UT Baseball Hall of Fame, and the city halls of fame for Toronto, Ottawa, Knoxville and Huntsville. Holloway is married to the former Courtney Haralson of Meigs County, and is the father of Jasmine and Condredge III.

2009 Season Review

Eric Berry

Cranked up and looking for good things to happen, their spirits buoyed by a top-20 preseason national ranking, the Vols instead crashed to their second losing campaign in four years in 2008. Tennessee notched a victory over Kentucky in the closing game to close a disappointing season with a 5-7 overall worksheet and a 3-5 slate in the Southeastern Conference. The brightest light in a rather dimly-lit season was sophomore safety Eric Berry. The Fairburn, Ga., native became the 33rd all-time UT player and the first since 1990 to claim consensus All-America honors. He earned first-team acclaim from all five NCAA-recognized outlets: American Football Coaches Association, Walter Camp Football Foundation, Football Writers Association of America, Associated Press and Sporting News. At the conference level, Berry became the first Tennessee player since Peyton Manning to earn SEC Player of the Year honors. Other awards lauded upon the stellar sophomore included the 2008 Jack Tatum Award, presented annually by the Touchdown Club of Columbus (Ohio) to the best defensive back in college football. He was also selected to receive the Vince Dooley Award for the Top Defensive Back in the Southeast presented by The Touchdown Club of Atlanta and the Tennessee Player of the Year award presented by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association. Lastly, he was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award. Berry's combination of strength and skill helped him finish with a major college-best seven interceptions for 265 return yards, while adding 72 tackles to finish third on the Tennessee team and 18th among SEC leaders. For his career in just 25 games, Berry owns 12 interceptions for 487 return yards and three touchdowns. In two seasons he has broken interception return yardage records that had been on the books for a combined 187 years. He now owns records for a UT season (previously stood for 37 years), UT career (39 years), SEC season (52 years) and SEC career (59 years). He enters the 2009 season just 14 yards shy of the major college career record of 501 interception return yards set by Florida State's Terrell Buckley from 1989-91. 2009 VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Pasadena, Calif. - Arian Foster rushed for 96 yards on just 13 carries and Montario Hardesty added 66 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries, but the Tennessee ground game couldn’t overcome mistakes on special teams and in the passing game as the Vols dropped their season opener to UCLA in overtime, 27-24. Highlighting several special teams miscues were three missed field goals—including a game-tying attempt in overtime—and a blocked punt returned for a touchdown for the only time in Phillip Fulmer’s tenure as head coach. On offense, new starting quarterback Jonathan Crompton struggled to find a rhythm, completing 19 of 41 passes for 189 yards and an interception. Gerald Jones caught four passes for 40 yards. The Tennessee defense was a bright spot in an otherwise shaky opening act. The Vols allowed just 29 rushing yards and 288 total yards while posting nine tackles for loss and picking off four offerings from UCLA signal caller Kevin Craft. In the first extra frame, the Tennessee defense held UCLA to zero yards and forced the Bruins to convert a 42-yard field goal. The Vol offense struggled as well on its possession, failing to gain a first down and forcing Lincoln onto the field for a game-tying 34-yard try, which he missed wide left to give UCLA the win.

Knoxville - Mistakes can cause a game to get out of hand quickly, and that’s exactly what happened to the Vols in a 30-6 loss to Florida. Tennessee’s first three possessions of the game ended in two turnovers—one inside the Florida 5-yard line—and a Florida punt return for a touchdown, placing the Vols squarely in a 17-0 hole. The Vols had the ball again at the Florida one-yard line with time running out in the first half and again turned it over, leaving the Vols a 20-0 halftime deficit from which they wouldn’t recover. Jonathan Crompton completed 18 of 28 passes for 122 yards. He also threw one interception and posted the Vols only touchdown on a one-yard run early in the fourth quarter. Tennessee out gained the Gators in total offense 258 to 243, but three turnovers, nine penalties and numerous special teams errors made that usually-telling statistic all but meaningless. The 243 yards gained by the Gators was their fewest vs. the Vols the since the 1990 game, when they gained just 194 yards. The Tennessee defense played well at times, but was put in too many bad situations due to special teams mistakes and turnovers. Rico McCoy led the unit with 10 tackles, while Eric Berry posted eight tackles and a sack.

Knoxville - Tennessee racked up 548 yards of total offense including 266 on the ground as the Vols rolled past UAB 35-3 at home. Arian Foster carried 12 times for 100 yards and Lennon Creer carried eight times for 93 yards and two touchdowns. Montario Hardesty rushed seven times for 28 yards and also scored a touchdown. The back-breaking play for the Blazers came on a 45-yard TD run from Creer late in the third quarter. The ensuing PAT gave the Vols a 28-3 lead with little more than a quarter to play. Creer added another score from three yards out early in the fourth frame to create the final margin. The dagger came from Creer, but most of the dirty work was Foster’s. He produced runs of 16, 25 and 31 yards en route to his 11th career 100-yard game. Gerald Jones caught two TD passes in the first quarter, the first a 20-yard strike on Tennessee’s second possession of the game and the second from 14 yards out on the Vols’ next possession. The Tennessee defense held the Blazers to 275 yards of offense and created three turnovers, each an interception by DeAngelo Willingham, Eric Berry and Ellix Wilson. Berry and Wilson also tied for the team lead with seven tackles apeice. Adam Myers-White contributed five stops, including two for losses.

1st - AU - Dunn 18 pass from Todd (Byrum kick). 2nd - UT - Lincoln 47 field goal.

Knoxville - The Tennessee defense dominated for the second-straight week in support of new starting quarterback Nick Stephens as the Volunteers held off Northern Illinois for a 13-9 win at Neyland Stadium. The Vol defenders surrendered just 190 yards of offense and picked off one Dan Nicholson pass, while the offense again struggled to find a rhythm, producing just nine first downs and 225 yards of offense. The deciding play of the game ended up being a 52-yard touchdown pass from Stephens to Denarius Moore in the third quarter. That play gave the Vols a 13-3 lead as the defense went on to surrender just two field goals in the final 25 minutes of play. Stephens finished the game 10-of-17 for 156 yards and a touchdown. Arian Foster was the Vols’ leader on the ground, grinding out 75 yards on 18 carries, while Moore’s 52-yard snag propelled him to the top of the stat sheet in the receiving column. He finished with three catches for 65 yards and a score. Daniel Lincoln saw action for the second-consecutive week, converting field goals of 36 and 34 yards. The defense produced a season-high four sacks and seven tackles for loss in the game. Nevin McKenzie, making his first career start, led the team with nine tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss. DeAngelo Willingham made three tackles and broke up three passes.

Athens, Ga. - Matthew Stafford threw for 310 yards and a touchdown and Knowshon Moreno carried 27 times for 101 yards to pace Georgia in a 26-14 win over Tennessee at Sanford Stadium. The Georgia offense amassed 458 yards of offense and possessed the ball for more than 42 minutes, thanks in large part to a number of defensive penalties and miscues from the Vols. When the Tennessee offense did get on the field, not much went right. Nick Stephens completed 13 of 30 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns, but the UT rushing game was non-existent. Montario Hardesty rushed six times for 20 yards and the team finished with just one rushing yard total at game’s end. Gerald Jones led the receiving corps with four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. The one thing that did seem to get the Tennessee offense going was turnovers. Robert Ayers picked off Stafford on a screen play in the second quarter, and the offense responded with a six-play, 77-yard drive capped by a two-yard pass from Stephens to Jones. Early in the third quarter, Eric Berry picked Stafford in the end zone and returned it 54 yards into Georgia territory. Tennessee took seven plays to drive the remaining 46 yards and scored on a 12-yard pass from Stephens to Lucas Taylor. Ellix Wilson led the team with 16 tackles, and Ayers posted a career-high nine stops and 3.5 tackles for loss.

Auburn, Ala. - The Tennessee defense certainly played to its potential, but the offense struggled mightily as Auburn pulled out a win over the Vols in a defensive struggle on The Plains. John Chavis’ defenders held the Auburn offense to 226 total yards and only one offensive touchdown, forcing eight three-and-outs including four in a back-and-forth final quarter. The difference in the game was Tennessee’s inability to move the ball on offense. The Vols gained 191 total yards and managed only nine first downs. A fumbled exchange between Jonathan Crompton and Arian Foster in the Vols’ own end zone during the second quarter gave Auburn the seven points it would need to hang on for a win. Crompton finished the game 8-of-23 for 67 yards, while Montario Hardesty led the rushing effort with 35 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. Hardesty rushed around left end for two yards and a score on the opening play of the fourth quarter to pull the Vols within two points, but Crompton’s pass on the two point try was caught short of the end zone by Gerald Jones. Ellix Wilson led the Vols with 10 tackles, including one for a loss. Dan Williams posted eight stops with two of those being for a loss. Tennessee’s other score came as the result of 38-yard interception return from Dennis Rogan.

Knoxville - With the recent struggles of the Tennessee offense, the Vols got back to what they know best-the running game and pressure defense--in a 34-3 win over Mississippi State at Neyland Stadium. Tennessee ground out 139 yards on the ground and scored two rushing touchdowns while the defense tallied five sacks and forced three interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns. The game-breaking play was a 72-yard interception return for a touchdown by Eric Berry early in the fourth quarter. The play put the Vols ahead 20-3 and gave Berry the Southeastern Conference record for career interception return yards with 397. It was his fifth pick of the season. On the Bulldogs’ next possession, Demetrice Morley got in on the act with a 32-yard pick return for a score, and Tennessee added a one-yard touchdown from Lennon Creer with less than three minutes to play. Creer ended the game as the Vols leading rusher with 68 yards and a score on 17 carries. Eight different Vols caught passes led by Lucas Taylor and Austin Rogers with two grabs for 23 yards apiece. Nick Stephens managed the game well under center, connecting on 10-of-20 passes for 136 yards. Berry led the Vols defensively with 10 tackles, including a sack. Nevin McKenzie posted eight tackles and 1.5 sacks. The five sacks posted by the defense were a season-high.

TENNESSEE ALABAMA

Knoxville - Tennessee gave itself opportunities early, but couldn’t fully capitalize down the stretch in the Vols’ 29-9 loss to No. 2 Alabama at Neyland Stadium. The UT defense and special teams units held strong for much of the first half, but the offense couldn’t do its part. Twice before halftime, Tennessee was given solid field position and came away with a total of three points. In the first quarter, Dennis Rogan recovered a fumbled punt inside the Alabama five-yard line. The UT offense lost nine yards on the drive and was forced to call on Daniel Lincoln for a 31-yard field goal. Early in the second quarter, Montario Hardesty blocked an Alabama punt to give Tennessee possession at the Crimson Tide 32-yard line. The offense lost two yards in three plays before Daniel Lincoln missed a 51-yard kick. After the intermission, Alabama took advantage of a tired Tennessee defense and scored 16 points on their first three drives, effectively putting the game out of the Vols’ reach. Nick Stephens finished the game 16-of-28 for 137 yards and a touchdown, which came late in the game on a screen pass to Josh Briscoe. Briscoe was the Vols’ top receiver with four catches for 46 yards. Tennessee managed only 36 yards rushing in the game led by from Arian Foster with 21. The Tennessee defense was led by Rico McCoy, who posted a season-high 13 tackles.

Columbia, S.C. - In what became the story of a season, the Tennessee defense played well, but two second-quarter turnovers by the offense proved to be the difference in the Vols’ 27-6 loss to South Carolina in Columbia. With the Vols trailing 7-0 and driving into South Carolina territory, Nick Stephens saw the first pick of his career returned 68 yards for a touchdown and a 14-0 Gamecock lead. Two possessions later, Jonathan Crompton completed a pass to Lennon Creer, who then fumbled and watched South Carolina’s Captain Munnerlyn return the loose ball to the Tennessee four-yard line. The Gamecocks would score on the next play. Nick Stephens finished the game 10-of-24 for 134 yards. He was replaced for a period in the second quarter by Jonathan Crompton, who completed 5-of-8 passes for 39 yards. Arian Foster rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Austin Rogers led the Vols’ receivers with three catches for 72 yards. Tennessee’s only score of the game came in third on a one-yard run from Foster.

Knoxville - Tennessee used the same formula to earn a victory for the second straight game, rushing for 210 yards and giving up only 193 yards of total offense in a 28-10 win over Kentucky at Neyland Stadium. It was the 24th-consecutive win for the Vols over the Wildcats and Phillip Fulmer’s 152nd and final victory as Tennessee’s head coach. Quarterback Jonathan Crompton threw just eight passes and completed six of them for a total of 101 yards and a touchdown. He also carried eight times for 17 yards and a score. Gerald Jones was the Vols’ top rusher and receiver, carrying five times for 67 yards and a touchdown while catching three passes for 15 yards. Denarius Moore caught Crompton’s TD pass, a 63-yard strike that gave the Vols a 14-3 lead early in the second half. The Vols added two touchdowns in the final quarter, one a five-yard rush from Lennon Creer and the other a two-yard scamper from Jones. Arian Foster posted 59 yards on 21 carries to finish his UT career as No. 2 on the all-time rushing list with 2,964 yards. Senior linebacker Ellix Wilson led the Vols in tackles for the fifth time with nine stops. Fellow senior Nevin McKenzi posted seven tackles, including two that went for a loss.

Nashville - Tennessee rode a productive second quarter and a stingy defense to its 13th-straight win in Nashville over in-state rival Vanderbilt. The Vols got all of their points in the second quarter and then turned the game over to the defense in the second half. The UT defenders held Vanderbilt to just 25 yards rushing while forcing three turnovers. Tennessee rushed for 222 total yards and threw just nine passes for 21 yards. Lennon Creer led the effort on the ground with 80 yards on 13 carries. Arian Foster added 53 yards on 11 carries, and Montario Hardesty rushed seven times for 43 yards and a touchdown. B.J. Coleman came off the bench to take the majority of the snaps in the game and completed four passes for 21 passing yards. After a scoreless first quarter, Hardesty scored from eight yards out to cap a nine-play, 65-yard drive and give the Vols a 7-0 lead. A poor punt from Brett Upson gave the Vols prime field position on their next possession, which was converted into a field goal and a 10-0 lead. Vanderbilt’s ensuing possession ended in a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown from Eric Berry. The Vols would add another field goal just before the intermission to make the score 20-0. Rico McCoy led the Tennessee defensive effort for the fourth-straight game with 11 tackles.

Knoxville - Tennessee’s defense again played admirably, but offensive miscues led to defeat for the Vols, this time at the hands of the Wyoming Cowboys at Neyland Stadium. Tennessee surrendered 13 points, an interception return for a touchdown and another interception cashed in with a one-play, four-yard drive. It was all the Cowboys would need as the Volunteer offense couldn’t get on the scoreboard when it needed to the most, in the final 20 minutes of the game. Tennessee managed 101 yards on the ground and 118 through the air. Starter Nick Stephens and backup Jonathan Crompton combined to go 14-of-36. Crompton completed the Vols’ lone touchdown pass to Gerald Jones, who finished the game with five grabs for 37 yards, in the third quarter. In the absence of running backs Arian Foster and Montario Hardesty, sophomore Lennon Creer carried 16 times for 82 yards. The Vols had four second-half possessions after the Jones touchdown and all four times drove to midfield or closer, but could not score. Rico McCoy led the UT defensive effort with 10 tackles, while Demonte Bolden posted seven tackles with three going for a loss. Robert Ayers also posted two TFLs for five yards.

All-America Notes

 Tennessee has had a total of 72 individual All-America selections, who have been recognized a total of 87 times.

 Tennessee has had one three-time All-America selection, guard Bob Suffridge, chosen in 1938, 1939 and 1940. Thirteen (13) other Vols have earned All-America honors twice during their careers.  Thirty-three (33) Vols have earned consensus NCAA All-America honors.

 The most honorees in one year were four, in 1939 and 1966.

 The most consecutive years with All-America selections were 11 from 1963-73, a total of 25 selections in all.

 Tennessee has had one father-son combination All-America selection in Steve DeLong (1963-64) and Keith DeLong (1988). Tennessee has had one brother combination, Johnny Majors (1956) and Bobby Majors (1971).  Two of Tennessee’s All-Americas later became head coaches at their alma mater: Bowden Wyatt (1938) in 1955 and Johnny Majors (1956) in 1977.

 Three of Tennessee’s All-America selections made All-America in other sports. All-America punter Ron Widby (1966) was a basketball All-America in 1967. Former Olympian and wide receiver Willie Gault (1982) was a track and field All-America in 1981-83. Richmond Flowers (1967) earned track and field All-America honors in 1968-69.

General Robert Reese Neyland

Gen. Robert R. Neyland

Feb. 17, 1892-March 28, 1962

The history and tradition of Tennessee football began under the tutelage of Gen. Robert Reese Neyland, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Neyland came to Tennessee as an ROTC instructor and backfield coach in 1925 and was named head football coach in 1926. From that date, Tennessee was in the college football business to stay.

Neyland’s 1939 Vol team was the last to shut out each of its regular season opponents. Over the course of his career, 112 of his 216 opponents failed to score against his Tennessee teams. Tennessee still holds an NCAA record for holding opponents scoreless 71 consecutive quarters.

Neyland’s teams won Southern Conference championships in 1927 and 1932, piling up undefeated streaks of 33 and 28 games along the way, and SEC championships in 1938, 1939, 1940, 1946 and 1951. In addition, Neylandcoached teams won four national championships. The Vols were consensus national champions in 1951, won the Dunkel, Litkenhous, Boand, Houlgate and Poling national championships in 1938, the Dunkel and Williamson crowns in 1940 and the DeVold and Dunkel crowns in 1950.

It was Gene McEver who kicked off the Neyland era with his 98-yard return of the opening kickoff in the 1928 Alabama game, a game the underdog Vols won 15-13. Each of Neyland’s succeeding eras would be highlighted by similar big plays: Johnny Butler’s 56-yard run against Alabama in 1939 and Hank Lauricella’s 75-yard run against Texas in the 1951 Cotton Bowl. Neyland’s 21year record at Tennessee was 173 wins, 31 losses and 12 ties. Neyland, who came to Tennessee as an Army captain and left as a brigadier general, brought one of the most efficient single-wing offenses in the country to go with an unyielding defense. He was assigned to the head coaching position by Dean Nathan Dougherty with a single injunction: “Do something about the series with Vanderbilt.”

Joey Kent

After Neyland’s death in 1962, the University established the Robert R. Neyland Scholarship, academic scholarships awarded to non-athletes, many of whom are National Merit Scholars. The endowment for these scholarships now exceeds $3 million and 192 students have been the beneficiary of the awards. The thoroughfare behind the stadium’s south end, once called the river road, is now named Neyland Drive. More recently, the Vol football complex on campus was named for Neyland and Knoxville businessman B. Ray Thompson.
