Today On Rocky Top: Cuonzo Martin's Job In Jeopardy?


From The Tennessean

I wonder if Cuonzo Martin is starting to feel the influence of the Dooley Effect.

Remember, Derek Dooley was Tennessee’s football coach for only three seasons before it was determined that mediocrity was unacceptable and he was fired. For those keeping score, Martin is in his third season as Vols basketball coach, and his team simply is not playing up to expectations.

College coaches in major sports used to get at least four seasons to prove themselves. It was considered only fair. That way, they could get their own recruits into the program and chart their course.

Those days are gone. By Year 3, you’re on the clock.

Tennessee co-head softball coaches Ralph Weekly and Karen Weekly were inducted into the Tennessee Amateur Softball Association Hall of Fame on Saturday at a ceremony in Nashville.

The Weeklys were inducted in the Meritorious Service Category for their contributions to the sport of softball, especially in the state of Tennessee.

Ralph Weekly has amassed a 1,119-369-2 (.752) coaching record and currently ranks fifth in wins among active NCAA Division I head coaches. His 1,119 coaching wins stand ninth all-time among NCAA Division I coaches and 14th in NCAA history, regardless of division. Ralph Weekly’s .752 winning percentage ranks seventh among active NCAA Division I coaches (minimum five years as an NCAA Division I coach).

Karen Weekly is 841-285-2 (.746) as a head

 

From Bleacher Report

As the clock ticks down to national signing day, the Tennessee Volunteers are more concerned about making their current class of 33 commitments fit into scholarship number crunches than adding new players.

Already there has been some necessary attrition this week with the decommitment of linebacker Kevin Mouhon, who told GoVols247′s Ryan Callahan (subscription required) that he “just felt like (he) had better opportunities elsewhere.”

Even so, there are a couple of major targets the Vols would love to add to close this year’s class and a couple more wavering commitments UT desperately wants (and needs) to hang onto.

    In My Opinion; Former AD Hamilton screwed up Tennessee’s Basketball program by FIRING Bruce Pearl instead of putting one of the Best coaches in College Basketball on probation. What’s your opinion of Cuonzo Martin he knows his stuff But he’s not Bruce Pearl. We should get him back It’s not often you find a coach like Pearl he was really liked and I’m sure the People of TENNESSEE forgive him for whatever ever he did against stupid NCAA rules.
