Tennessee Athletic Director Resigns

8 Jun

Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton announces his resignation just days before NCAA hearing.
Hamilton said “I’ve never experienced more challenge or frustration in my 26 years of professional life than during the last 18 months.”

The last 18 months have had both the football and basketball teams in the midst of national controversy. Head football coach Lane Kiffin and basketball coach Bruce Pearl was fired and put the university under review by the NCAA infractions committee because of possible violations.

Hamilton however did go on to say, “I accept the responsibility for the things that have led to some of these challenges. Ultimately, I think today was inevitable based upon today’s operating environment in college athletics.”
