UNC claims Fedora didn't even interview for the Tennessee job, sounds like CYA to me:

    Ken, there were so many rumors out there about the Tennessee job and Fedora, it was hard to ferret out the truth. When I heard things on David Glenn's show, on Channel 14's Sports Night, I thought that Fedora had spoken to Tennessee. I also thought Bubba was skirting the issue by saying he wouldn't comment on the coaching rumors. Why not come out and say Fedora is staying in Chapel Hill?

    I'm not sure 903 is right about Fedora's agent putting out feelers, and Fedora feeling UNC lied to him. The only thing I'm sure of now is that Tennessee hired a coach, and it looks like Fedora is staying put.

    You're right, TBK. I wish I could remember the name of the guy (I think he is a coach) who hired Fedora as an assistant years ago. That guy spoke on camera on WTVD about Fedora commenting about "more money than he thought he'd make in a life time."

    All I can say at this point is I'm glad Fedora is staying.

    We had a very nice, satisfying 8-4 season. No bowl game, but, overall, I feel good about it. You, on the other hand, have to be hurting due to NCSU's continued failure to live up to the hype and need to fire yet another coach. And now basketball is shaping up to continue to fuel your rage. Poor guy.

    Kinda hard to prove a negative. How about you providing a link to Fedora not molesting collies?

    Or better yet, how about you just provide a link that he was OFFERED anything from Tennessee.

    Nowhere will you find that he was offered anything. All he says is he turned down a large chunk of money. These are coaching word games, kind of like all those coaches using State's coaching search to get raises for themselves when in reality, they had not even interviewed at State.

    The most likely scenario is Tennessee was floating around the dollar amount they were going to pay their next coach to compile a list of names of possible candidates. Fedora did not (IMO) even submit his name. And now he can say he turned down all those millions from Tennessee.

    Good luck finding ANYTHING concrete that says he was offered the job or even interviewed for sure. He wants people to think that. Probably bucking for a raise like Butch did after his first year.

    No credible outlet said that he interviewed for the Tennessee job either, but ABC'ers such as yourself pounced on it.

    Sadly, the entire group of you will do anything that you can to spin it in a bad way.

    I am sure it could be more pathetic, but I really do not know how.

  • 903 mens national championships Dec 9, 2012

    www.<fill in the blank with any sports media outlet>.com never reported he got an offer for 3.5 million/year.

    Link to him putting out feelers for a job?I don't follow that closely, but the point is that's what's out there and what's out there is what recruits hear and believe.

    Cutcliffe "took his name out" as you said because other coaches get fired for having his record.As soon as the Tennessee job gets opened up, Cut's name is always the first one brought up. They tried to get him in 2008 and they would've done it again but he showed his commitment to Duke the honorable way by publicly stating that he wasn't leaving.

    No one offered anyone 3.5 million a year. Period.

    And you believe what you want to believe, recruits hear what the rest of us do. And that's that Fedora's agent put feelers out for other jobs because he felt UNC lied to him about the corruption.

    Cutcliffe was never in discussion this time about Tennessee because he came forward and took his name out of the search.

    You reaffirm your commitment to your job the way Cutcliffe did, not the way Fedora and his agent do.
