Tennessee Athletic Director Mike Hamilton Should Be Fired

Bruce Pearl is out at UT, ending the most successful six-year span the men's basketball program has ever experienced. Pearl led the Vols to a 145-61 (65-31 SEC) record including an Elite Eight and two Sweet Sixteen appearances.

But with impending NCAA violations, Pearl is playing the part of the scapegoat. The person at fault is actually Mike Hamilton.

Hamilton has done little to police the athletic program and was responsible for the hiring of Lane Kiffin. We all saw how that worked out.

Pearl made mistakes, for which he is now paying, but he single-handedly made UT men's basketball relevant.

And now he's gone. And Hamilton should be following.

I know most agree with me.
