Vols Kiffin Rubs NCAA Again

Tennessee Vols New Head Football Coach Lane Kiffin must LOVE the NCAA.

His latest antics have Vols brass looking into whether he committed ANOTHER recruiting violation by allowing media to be present during a meeting between the coach and some recruits.

It happened during a segment of ESPN's Outside the Lines program which aired Sunday.

Tennessee has responded to at least 4-minor infractions since Kiffin was introduced as Coach December 1st.

ESPN's "Outside the Lines" segment, which recapped Kiffin's

first six months as coach of the Volunteers, also included a

statement made by Kiffin's former team, the Oakland Raiders.

Kiffin was fired in September for cause after what owner Al

Davis described as acts of insubordination and lying. Kiffin filed

a grievance and is seeking two months pay for the time he was

unemployed before being hired at Tennessee.

"Lane Kiffin is a flat-out liar. He lied to the team, he lied

to the fans, and he lied to the media," the Raiders' statement

said. "He will try to destroy that university like he tried to

destroy the Raiders, and will eventually clash with (women's

basketball coach Pat) Summitt and (men's basketball coach Bruce)

Pearl."

Carpenter declined comment on the Raiders' statement.
