    Currie was hired earlier this year after eight years at Kansas State

    There is "increasing pressure" from some of the Univ. of Tennessee's "big-money boosters to force out" AD John Currie in wake of the uproar surrounding the school's pursuit of Greg Schiano as football coach, according to sources cited by Bruce Feldman of SI.com. One source described the current situation in Knoxville as a "hot mess." Currie was "hired earlier this year" after eight years at Kansas State. Meanwhile, the Knoxville News Sentinel's John Adams said he believes Currie "is done here as athletic director." Adams: "I don’t think he can come back from this, so that may be the next search when they get this football search done.”
