If anyone is absorbing any real damage, it's head coach George O'Leary, whose critics can now add "probation" to the pile of logs fueling the fire under his office chair. UCF took a chance on O'Leary after he was infamously fired from Notre Dame after two days on the job for falsifying his resumé in 2001, and has been repaid with the burden of a mediocre record, a wrongful death suit following the death of a player during an unusually strenuous offseason workout, the collapse of a second player during another workout less than a year later (that player, running back Brandon Davis, recovered to contribute in two games last fall) and a petty feud with the local media. During O'Leary's otherwise successful stint at Georgia Tech in the nineties, the Yellow Jackets were cited by the NCAA for playing ineligible players, and an offensive lineman accused the coach of siccing four defensive linemen on him as punishment for missing too many blocks.

Former Georgia Tech coach George O'Leary has gotten another program into trouble with the NCAA.

Is Tennessee Close to Hiring David Cutcliffe?


It's looking that way, and, if it turns out to be the case, it's a good hire. David Cutcliffe has been a successful SEC head coach (one bad season at Ole Miss that got him undeservedly canned notwithstanding), he has been relatively effective at Duke (albeit not at Spurrier-scary levels), and, unlike Lane Kiffin, he regards Knoxville as an ultimate destination rather than a way station. Coach Cutcliffe isn't a splashy pick, but his history with the Vols suggests that he was to Phillip Fulmer as Ralph Friedgen was to George O'Leary or Erskine Russell was to Vince Dooley. The Fridge went on to have some stellar seasons at Maryland (though not lately) and Erk had a Hall of Fame-worthy career in Statesboro from start to finish. If Tennessee is looking to strike fear into the hearts of rival fans, David Cutcliffe isn't the way to go, but, frankly, every guy they might have gotten who would have frightened me (Will Muschamp, Charlie Strong, Tommy Tuberville) is off the table, so they should opt for restoring their program to respectability. David Cutcliffe does that. Go 'Dawgs!
