RTI staff writer Ben McKee was on campus to record each assistant’s media availability.
Defensive line coach Tracy Rocker discussed the “roller coaster” of coaching the defensive line, advice he took from Reggie White, the difference between last year’s group and this year’s unit, and more.
Running backs coach David Johnson detailed sophomore running back Jeremy Banks’ attitude, what he wants to see from his unit this upcoming season, the influence of Jim Chaney on his group, and more.
Quarterbacks coach Chris Weinke talked about the growth and progress of starting quarterback Jarrett Guarantano, why the Vols’ offense is a “quarterback friendly” offense, creating competition even though Guarantano is the undoubted starter, and more.
