Reports: Sal Sunseri to Take Tennessee Job


It's is being reported by GoVols24/7 and Izzy Gould of, that Sal Sunseri will be taking the defensive coordinator's position at Tennessee.

Although Sunseri's son Vinnie plays for the Tide, apparently the money that UT is offering was too much for Sunseri to turn down. According to Gould, Sunseri's salary will almost double. Sunseri, who was expected to make 400k this year, will make between $700-800,000 per year.

Sunseri was Alabama's assistant head coach, and linebackers coach last season. He joined the Tide staff in 2009 after seven seasons with the Carolina Panthers. Sunseri is considered one of top recruiters in the country. He was credited for bringing in big names like linebacker Trey DePriest and left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.

Don't worry Tide fans, Vinnie Sunseri will not be joining his dad in Knoxville.
