Even NCAA president Mark Emmert is taking a swipe at Tennessee for their dysfunctional search for a head football coach.

Emmert has seen just about everything in his seven-plus years as president of the NCAA, a position he assumed in November 2010. Scandals, hirings, firings, minor violations, major violations. And he talked about some of those issues on Wednesday morning, including poor leadership leading to botched decisions that negatively affect student-athletes.
His example? Tennessee, who fired Butch Jones nearly one month ago but has still not found his replacement. The Vols have reportedly offered the job to at least seven or eight individuals but are being dogged by unforced errors.
NCAA president Mark Emmert said when a school isn't in alignment with all of its key leaders on an important personnel hire, "Then you get Tennessee." https://t.co/d7Mp0u6lP6

Emmert and the NCAA takes a lot of heat — and rightfully so — but he nailed this one. Kudos to him for calling out Tennessee's inept administration
