We hired Boots after the '78 season to come home rebuild a once proud MT football program that had become complete trash in the late seventies. I too fear that MT football is not too far from falling into the same mess as it was under Ben Hurt. Boots was hired away from Peay and he is still the last coach to win an outright conference title, even twenty years after he stepped down as coach. That alone speaks to how bad the culture has become. I would certainly welcome the current Peay coach as the next MT coach, we should be so lucky.
