Settled on 2.5 million buyout. I'd like to know how we rank among all schools in buyouts the last 10 years.

I wish I could get paid 2.5M to suck out loud. Pretty good work if you can get it.

Settlement was more than I thought it would be.  I guess the combined payouts for Bruce, Currie and the football staff are around $11M over 3-4 years. 

I would think a lot of the assistants got jobs, but their share was pretty small anyway.  Really wonder how much Jones is making from bammer....my guess is 100K, if that.  Who knows.

Although, being public universities, I would expect the salary from bammer to be public knowledge, as well as the amount paid by UT to Jones.

All the football staff payouts were significantly mitigated by their taking other jobs. Only FCLJ hasn't pursued other gainful employment

Dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
May act their dream with open eyes, to make it
Possible. This I did.

All kinds of interesting stuff coming out of the Currie text dump. Sounds like some of our "friends" in the national media weren't working in the interest of impartiality at all. Who knew?

Incredible. What a shizzle show! So is this still on Haslam? Either that or Currie is just embarrassingly inept. Where the fizzle did Schiano come from? Still boggles the mind

The best thing that has happened to UTsports in the last ~15yrs is getting rid of Currie.

For some reason this part sticks out to me as one of the funniest things in the timeline:

Tennessee interim head coach Brady Hoke threw his name into the hat as well with a text in all caps saying: “JOHN I HOPE YOU DO KNOW I WOULD LIKE TO BE YOUR HEAD FOOTBALL COACH I DO KNOW THE ENVIRONMENT WE LIVE IN AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AT TENNESSEE!”
