DESTIN, Fla. - Mark Smith is still on the Tennessee football staff, UT football coach Lane Kiffin said Tuesday at the SEC spring meetings.
"We have not parted ways," Kiffin said of his strength and conditioning coach. "There has been nothing done.
"I evaluate him like I would anyone else on our staff."
Smith never signed a contract with UT when he was hired by Kiffin in December. UT and Smith do have a memorandum of understanding.
Smith isn't expected to be on the staff much longer, according to a News Sentinel source in the UT athletic department.
Former UT track and field athlete Aaron Ausmus is regarded as the leading candidate to replace Smith.
