KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart believes his department is on the right track, even though the Volunteers' recent results show there's plenty of work left to do.


The Vols have failed to earn a bowl bid or reach the NCAA men's basketball tournament each of the last two years. Before 2011-12, Tennessee hadn't missed out on a bowl and the NCAA tournament in the same school year since 1977-78.


Tennessee placed 37th in the 2012-13 Directors Cup standings, its lowest finish in the 20-year history of the award given annually to the nation's top college athletic program.


Hart says he understood the challenges facing Tennessee when he took the job in September 2011. He believes recent moves such as the hiring of football coach Butch Jones will turn things around.
