MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - At the University of Memphis, new Tigers head coach Ryan Silverfield proud to say he got all the recruits who originally committed to former U of M head coach Mike Norvell to sign on the dotted line.

“I was named interim head coach right at the time I was supposed to be at an in-home visit at 5 p.m. that night.” Silverfield said, “I had to do a press conference with you guys which I enjoyed. I had to do a Cotton Bowl teleconference with Coach Franklin.”

The Tigers have 16 players in Silverfield’s first class as head coach.
