Some schools won’t tolerate losing. I personally think the “for cause” thing is to try and negotiate a smaller settlement with Pruitt.
Trust me when it's all said and done, he was fired for cause. You can't give out 💰💰💰 and not win and get caught doing it

Sounds like most of the football staff got axed as well. Have to wonder if this stuff has been tolerated all along, but finally the idea paying another coach not to coach was too much to stomach. Or maybe the stuff is standard practice at Alabama but not Tennessee?

Most people associated with UT want Blackburn back to be the new AD. And here we have him on staff in a lower position. SMH.
