The Importance of Keeping Rick Barnes

By Alex Norman In recent years, Tennessee has not been a “destination” job when it mattered most.  In football, Lane Kiffin memorably bolted for his “dream job” at Southern California in 2010.  In men’s basketball, Cuonzo Martin, who many fans were happy to see leave, departed for what could only be seen as a less […]
