Tigers Fire Defensive Coordinator

While the Offense for the 2007 Memphis Tigers Football team put up record numbers, the Defense was a different story...

The Tigers "D" was soo bad it cost one U of M coach his Job.

Defensive Coordinator Rick Kravitz was let go by Tigers Head Coach Tommy West.

In Kravitz first and only season running the Defensive Unit, Memphis gave up more than 31-points a game, and almost 440 yards on average each contest.

The U of M "D" was almost non-existent in the New Orleans Bowl against Sun Belt Champion Florida Atlantic.

Memphis lost that game 44-to-27 and finished 7-and-6 on the year.

Head Coach West says he remains committed to doing what's necessary for the program to reach its' fullest potential.
