    Junior wide receiver Gerald Jones said Friday night that he hoped Wilson would stay but would be OK if the coach left. The player said he and most teammates understand that major college football is a "business" and that most players and coaches want to advance their careers as quickly as possible.
    "We've been through worse," Jones said. "It is what it is."
    Jones said Wilson was a "big reason" for the Vols' consistent passing-game improvements this season.
    "I wouldn't say he was overlooked, but I think he deserved more credit than he's gotten," Jones said. "At the beginning of the year, the receiver corps was suspect. It was, 'Oh, my gosh, the receivers aren't in the right spot. (Jonathan) Crompton's overthrowing them. Whose fault is it?'
    "Now you barely see drops by the receivers. You see big-time plays. As a corps, we're coming together, and we're becoming I think one of the best receiver corps in the nation. And all credit is due to him."

    Good to know he is that highly regarded by his players. He'll have alot to work with here, and hopefully he can help develop our guys.

    I will enjoy watching our WRs line up correctly next year.

    Okie, Wilson is coming in as a RB/recruiting coordinator or assistant coordinator.

    He only coached WRs once in his career.

    I am sure he will give some input with the WRs as well.

    I understand he's coached mainly on the RB portion of the game. Tenn has used him as a WR coach this year. It sounds like he would be great at either spot if he came here.

    And to agree with The Dude, it will be nice watching receivers line up correctly:grin:
