University of Memphis raising profile in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Memphis appears to be trying to raise its profile in Nashville.

Basketball coach John Calipari and football coach Tommy West are scheduled to be in Nashville April 23 in behalf of the school's Tiger Scholarship Fund office.

The event will be at the Frist Center for the Performing Arts.

Some Tiger fans in Nashville have long complained that the Middle Tennessee media snubs the school.

The University of Tennessee already has annual events in Nashville featuring coaches.
