...or Lane Kiffin is totally throwing gasoline on this rivalry
al.com is reporting that outside linebackers coach Lance Thompson has been hired at Tennessee. I'm not sure how much of an impact this will have on the defense; he is a position coach after all and everyone knows who is running the show on that side of the ball anyway. But he is a top notch recruiter (McCarron, Richardson, and Fluker are all his) joining a rival staff that already has Ed Orgeron. I'm not overly concerned about him flipping any current Tide commits, but with Kevin Steele gone to Clemson that leaves two spots open on the staff that were previously occupied by outstanding recruiters. Next recruiting season should be very interesting.
ed.- somehow I missed OTS's fanshot on this. oops.
