Report: Ex-Texas HC Rick Barnes To Take Tennessee Job

Rick Barnes not expected to return to Texas

Well it didn’t take too long for Rick Barnes to land on his feet after recently being let go from being the head man at the University of Texas.

The former Longhorns head coach is expected to be named the head coach at Tennessee.

Barnes went from one UT to another. He will need to get a different shade of orange to match his new school, but he won’t be completely be out of his element being at the flagship university of state called UT.

Not a bad hire for the Volunteers, Barnes got Texas to the NCAA tournament almost every year during his 17 year tenure, but had a habit of underachieving. He is a good recruiter and I expect he will do a fine job at Tennessee.
