Tommy West Knows Heat is On Him for Football Tigers

problems abound at the University of Memphis..

Head Coach Tommy West has entered the embattled stage after seeing his team post a second straight 1 and 3 start to the season..

Saturday's double-digit home loss to Marshall in their Conference USA Opener fans the flames of those calling for his ouster.

West says he'll take whatever comes Head On.

  West says look at the NFL Tennessee Titans... They are 1-and-3.  "Anybody jumping off that ship? No!" West says this is the time to dig in, keep doing what he believes in, and the results will come.  He says he can't let talk of his impending ouster affect his job.  He says he hears the talk..but, he's still got to get the job done.

The U of M plays at 2-2 UCF Saturday. Kickoff is 2:30pm.
