    No coaches, so far at least, have died from contracting the covid from their teams or from playing games/matches. Not just in the US but anywhere in the world. It's sort of interesting.

    Early last Fall, CBS Sports was widely circulating the work of a "computer scientist" from Illinois Univ who predicted that resuming sports would kill a bunch of people. His "conclusions" directly led, at least in part, to the Big 10's initial decision to cancel all its Fall Sports programs. And then none of his predictions came true. In fact, the NC was just won by a 70-year old who did contract it but was fine (he had also had an earlier false positive test). Neither the computer scientist nor CBS Sports have ever retracted these claims that completely unsettled the entire world of college sports. Instead, he has doubled down and is now predicting several basketball coaches will die from contracting the covid because basketball season has resumed.

    What's going on in the background there?
    Where's he working out? Gymboree?
    Clearly one of the best and most impactful players on this team...and that is saying something.
    AND probably had at least as much or more reason/justification to jump than a few others that did...but yet he is staying..
    ...And that is saying something, too.

    Jeremy Pruitt Fired; Fulmer Stepping Down As Athletic Director At Tennessee | AM 1300 THE ZONE

    Jeremy Pruitt Fired; Fulmer Stepping Down As Athletic Director At Tennessee
    By Jason HallJan 18, 2021

    University of Tennessee football coach Jeremy Pruitt has been fired.

    The Knoxville Sentinel reports Pruitt was terminated following an investigation into alleged NCAA violations committed by the football program during his tenure, which means the university will not pay his buyout, sources within the program with knowledge of the situation confirmed.


    Additionally, current athletic director and former head coach Phillip Fulmer, who hired Pruitt in 2017, will retire, with sources claiming he wants his successor to pick UT's next football coach.

    Fulmer's decision to retire is reportedly not tied to the investigation, the Knoxville Sentinel reports.

    Earlier this month, ESPN's Mark Schalbach reported the University of Tennessee implemented a hiring freeze regarding any assistant coaching vacancies and extensions amid an ongoing internal investigation into potential recruiting violations.

    UT reportedly hired two prominent lawyers, Mike Glazier and Kyle Skillman, to assist in its internal investigation, which will include the attorneys interviewing current players regarding alleged improper benefits and other NCAA violations this week, according to sources.

    "We take seriously our institutional commitment to NCAA compliance, and are reviewing regulatory issues that have been brought to our attention," university spokeswoman Tyra Haag said in a statement obtained by ESPN this week. "As part of that process, we are currently working with attorneys Kyle Skillman and Michael Glazier with Bond, Schoeneck & King. We will provide additional information when it's appropriate."


    Last month, Tennessee's compliance department launched an investigation into improper recruiting practices within its football program, ESPN reports. Compliance department officials reportedly interviewed current players, recruits, assistant coaches, student volunteers and other members of the athletic department in relation to the accusations facing the football program, with interviews beginning in November.

    Sources told ESPN that they weren't sure whether NCAA officials had interviewed student-athletes and coaches or whether information regarding possible violations was turned over to the NCAA at the time of the report.

    Tennessee ranked No. 13 and No. 10 overall during the 2019 and 2020 national recruiting cycles, respectively, according to 247Sports' Composite team recruiting rankings. The Vols finished the 2020 season with a 3-7 overall record and head coach Jeremy Pruitt currently has a 16-19 overall record during three seasons as head coach.

    Sure looks like a Tech/Leach type deal. "We don't want to pay him - quick let's dig up something wrong!"
