Tennessee WR coach reportedly retires

Tennessee Volunteers logo

The first, but perhaps not the last, of Tennessee’s staff changes have reportedly begun.

Multiple media outlets out of Tennessee and CBS’ Bruce Feldman are reporting that Vols WR coach Charlie Baggett has “retired.” Baggett, who was in his second year at UT, will receive departing compensation, although it’s not being specified as a buyout. The amount of that compensation isn’t known.

The school hasn’t officially confirmed the departure yet.

Tennessee finished 2011 a disappointing 5-7, with their bowl hopes dashed by a 10-7 loss to Kentucky — their first in the last 26 games with the Wildcats.

    This school is a loser! NCAA scandals, girls sent to high school players games, and “on and on” before hiring a marginal small college coach with a famous name. Dooley is the major problem but he will blame it on some assistant while his “momma” trashes anyone who criticizes him as with the Georgia radio jocks who dared to even mildly criticize him.

    Kentucky used to own the two longest losing streaks for one team against another in the country, the longest being v. Tennessee… the second longest being their losing streak to Florida. Next year, watch out. They’re going after that one too :)

    Defensive Coordinator is meeting with his players today. Speculation that he is departing and possibly joining Peterson at UCLA. Wilcox worked for Peterson at Boise, two years ago.

    As to Tennessee is a loser, cannot argue with you about the record. However, the things that Kiffin did and what he did. The book is still out on Dooley, but if it isn’t fixed soon, that book will be short.

    I hope he gets it corrected.

    I don’t think UT envisoned the program looking this bad after letting Fulmer go….what a mess.

    In the long run, Dooley will be a good coach. He inherited a mess from Lane. High HC turnover is a slippery slope.

    In August it was reported “University of Southern California coach Lane Kiffin did not commit any major violations during his one year at the University of Tennessee and will not face any sanctions, the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions announced Wednesday.” Kiffin left Tennessee for a much better opportunity at USC. The continued need my those attempting to place blame on a former coach no longer associated with a program is a red herring.
