After doing my daily scan of Rotoworld I bumped into something I found quite interesting...
Broncos offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates was given a raise and a contract extension after flirting with the University of Tennessee.
Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin presumably wanted Bates to run the Vols' offense and Bates was reportedly "seriously" considering it, but Denver's offer was too good. Bates also probably realized that Tennessee is far from guaranteed success in the SEC.
Kiffin's got a strong staff, but has an uphill battle for both recruits and wins against NFL-caliber players.
So the former Raider got wise and he is officially poaching our staff. Thoughts anyone?
