Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said he has no desire to return to Alabama to replace Mal Moore, who announced his resignation Wednesday due to health concerns.
Hart, an Alabama graduate, was a top lieutenant to Mal Moore for three years before taking the top job at Tennessee.
In an interview on WNML in Knoxville, Hart said his main concern was for Moore’s health.
"He is the finest human being I’ve ever met, worked with or been associated with in my career,” Hart said.
Asked about the possibility of returning to his alma mater, Hart said, “My focus is purely here. My total focus is on continuing to be privileged to serve as vice chancellor and director of athletics at Tennessee."
