By the way, can a school interview a guy like TT without getting permission from Texes Tech? It sures seems that way. It's a wild, wild west out there where head coaches are concerned
Whit called Texas Tech and left two voice mails with this AD prior to contacting Tommy Tuberville. I suppose he didn't have "permission", but it wasn't due to him not trying. I can't fault him for Texas Tech not answering their phone.
Also, Whit commented during his press conference that Tennessee was the only school to request permission to speak with Butch Jones. He stated that it is rare today but a very important action for him.
