Tennessee football players aren’t the only ones who face potential distractions as questions swirl about head coach Derek Dooley’s future.
The Vols’ assistant coaches, seven of whom are in their first season UT, say they’re focused on winning Saturday.
“Nothing going’s to change,” Sunseri said. “We work right now for the University of Tennessee. We’re going to work every single day. I’ve been here every morning at 5:30 and haven’t left until 11 o’clock at night. That’s what we do.”
The Vols (4-6, 0-6 SEC) play at Vanderbilt (6-4, 4-3) on Saturday (TV: ESPN2, 7 p.m.)
Sunseri said players have been sharp in practice this week.
“To me, the practices have been good as they were last week,” he said. “Now it’s just the execution we’ve got to take to the game.”
