Reactions to the Mike Hamilton Resignation
As previously mentioned, University of Tennessee men’s athletic director Mike Hamilton resigned today. While not a total shock, the timing seemed a bit curious with Tennessee set to go before the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions on Saturday, but then again, nothing in the eight years of Hamilton’s rule went smoothly and rationally.
....[L]et’s get the reactions of those closest to the situation:
[Derek Dooley:] “So, the guy who, at one point, thought myself and Lane Kiffin were qualified coaches is gone? Note to self: Update resume and references.”
[Pat Summit:] “I AM DISAPPOINTED IN EVERYONE. ALWAYS.”
[Bruce Pearl:] “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait a second. The checks are still going to keep coming, right? Right?”
[Lane Kiffin:] “Who?”
