Tennessee football: Five positives from Vols hiring LB coach Shelton Felton

In a surprise move, Tennessee football really doubled down on the youth movement with its new on-field assistant coaches. With Chris Rumph leaving to join the Houston Texans, Jeremy Pruitt lured Chris Rumph away from the Akron Zips to take his place.

Well, the truth is that we don’t know just yet. Tennessee football could be getting a major steal, or they could be getting a flop.
