Tennessee has hired
Alabama's associate head coach and linebackers coach Sal Sunseri as their new defensive coordinator. Sunseri said in a statement...
"The chance to work with Derek Dooley, who has been around championships and knows what it takes to build an elite program, combined with the rich tradition of the University of Tennessee, makes this opportunity so exciting to me," "I am fired up to work with all of the young talent on the defensive side of the ball, and I can't wait to get up to Knoxville and coach them."
Sunseri was on LSU's staff in 2000 as linebackers coach with Dooley who was also on that same LSU staff as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator.
