Tennessee hires Jim Chaney from Georgia as new OC

By WNML Staff

The University of Tennessee’s extended offensive coordinator search has come to an end.

According to multiple reports, and confirmed by our Sports Director Jimmy Hyams, Georgia OC Jim Chaney has been hired as Jeremy Pruitt’s new offensive coordinator at UT. Chaney returns to Rocky Top after OC stints under Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley.

Chaney had earlier spoken to Pruitt without an offer being issued. Chaney was also said to be hireable as Jimmy Hyams outlined in this article last weekend.

No official release has been distributed from UT. We do not expect a press conference for the hire or an additional media availability with the Tennessee head football coach. The next time we are likely to see Pruitt in a pres conference setting is on February’s National Signing Day.

Jimmy outlined more details on the hire and Chaney tonight.

All of our weekday local shows (6a to 7:30pm) will have coverage, information, opinions and reaction to this big hire for the Tennessee football program.
