Kiffin jokes that he has trouble following rules

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin says he is "very
confident" the NCAA's inquiry into the university's student
ambassador program will reveal no rules violations by his staff.

Kiffin and Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer visited Atlanta on
Thursday to preview the Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Bowl.

A smiling Kiffin drew a laugh when asked by a fan what has been
the biggest challenge of his first year as the Vols' coach, he
said, "Following all the rules."

Female members of the school's Orange Pride ambassador group
traveled nearly 200 miles to a high school football game where
three players are being recruited by Kiffin's staff.

Kiffin says the NCAA has interviewed Tennessee recruits but has
not contacted him.
