Tennessee extends contracts for 9, including Vitello

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee has extended the contracts of nine coaches, including Tony Vitello, who took the Volunteers to their first College World Series in 16 years.

Athletic director Danny White said Tuesday he wanted to acknowledge he inherited an impressive roster of coaches when he was hired in January.

“That’s a credit to those who came before me," White said. “Extending contracts for successful coaches is one indicator of a healthy athletics program, and we plan on continuing to be aggressive with extensions and rewarding success moving forward.”

Vitello coached the Vols to 50 victories for the third time in program history.
