Vols To Introduce Donnie Tyndall As New Head Coach On Tuesday


 

It’s officially official.

Donnie Tyndall, as reported by various media outlets on Monday night, will be the next Tennessee basketball coach, according to a release from the school.

The Vols will hold a press conference at 2:00 PM ET on Tuesday to introduce Tyndall.

According to Gary Parrish of CBS sports, the deal between Tyndall and Tennessee is worth $1.6 million a year for six years.

Tennessee had offered Cuonzo Martin $1.8 million a year to remain head coach, which was up from his $1.3 million per year salary.

Tyndall comes to Tennessee with a track record of success. He has a career record of 200-106.

The Michigan native guided Southern Mississippi to 29 wins this past season.

    A good hire considering the situation. UT will have to rebuild now that the big three are gone. Hopefully UT fans will be patient once again and give Coach Tyndall time to rebuild. So far it has worked with Coach Butch Jones and I expect it will work here as well. Many fans don’t seem to realize the financial burdens UT is under right now. Go Big Orange!
