The next phase in the rebuilding of Tennessee will include another change in the coaching staff.
According to multiple sources familiar with the personnel but not authorized to speak publicly on Thursday, Charlie Baggett will not return to the program for a third year and has elected to retire.
The assistant head coach earned $400,000 for his work leading the wide receivers as the Vols struggled to a 5-7 record last season. The school has not confirmed the move, but sources briefed on the decision indicated it was Baggett's decision to step down after 35 years on the sidelines, including the last two with the Vols after being hired by Derek Dooley.
Baggett helped develop former UT wideout Denarius Moore into an NFL draft pick during their one season together, a campaign that produced career highs for the current member of the Oakland Raiders with 47 catches for 981 yards and nine touchdowns.
Despite losing leading target Justin Hunter in the third game of the season, Baggett still had a pupil turn in one of the most productive seasons in the conference this year with Da'Rick Rogers hauling in 67 receptions for 1,040 yards and nine scores.
