Aberdeen native to take reins at Tennessee

UNDATED (AP) – Josh Heupel has been hired as Tennessee’s new football coach. New athletic director Danny White has announced that he has hired Heupel as Tennessee’s 27th head coach overall. Heupel is the Vols’ fifth different head coach, not counting interim or acting coaches, since the end of the 2008 season. Heupel will be introduced at a news conference later today. He was 28-8 in three seasons at UCF, where White hired him to replace Scott Frost after the Knights went 13-0 in 2017. White was hired just last week to replace Phillip Fulmer, who retired.
