Bama product seen
as Vols’ next AD
KNOXVILLE — A person familiar with the situation says Tennessee has offered its open athletic director’s job to Alabama assistant athletic director Dave Hart.
Tennessee has been looking for a new athletic director since Mike Hamilton resigned in June in the wake of a lengthy NCAA investigation. The person spoke Thursday to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the offer had not been made public.
Hart did not immediately return a telephone message left by the AP. He has been executive director of athletics assisting Alabama athletic director Mal Moore since August 2008.
