KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The returning Tennessee players won't just know their coaches and coordinators this season. They're heading into fall practice with a clear idea of what those coaches expect of them on the field.
Senior tailback Tauren Poole says that will make a big difference to a team that's seen a lot of turnover when it comes to coaching. When the Volunteers begin fall practice on Tuesday it will be the first time in four seasons they won't be getting used to either a new head coach or new offensive or defensive coordinator.
That means Dooley, offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox will spend less time this August trying to impress on players what is expected of them and more time on fundamentals and on restoring the Vols' pride.
