Tough Job Ahead For New Vols Receivers Coach Zach Azzanni
The Vols had one of the best receiving duos in college football last year. Too bad new UT receivers coach Zach Azzanni won't get to work them.
Azzanni says he'll start with a clean slate this year since Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson went pro. That means Tennessee needs to sign some receivers this February. And while Azzanni recruited in the Big Ten at Wisconsin, he knows it's a whole new recruiting game in the SEC.
Said Azzanni,"Recruiting at this level is different. It really, really is. It's a fight every day. You take a day off, and you are going to get beat. It's ultra-competitive every single day and every single hour. We all have great facilities. We all have good people. We all have big stadiums. We all have nice carpet in the locker rooms. Got to find that little edge, and what's going to separate you just a little bit to make that kid make a decision. You are trying to search for that every single day."
