Alleva Stays At LSU, UT Keeps Looking

So much for sources saying Joe Alleva would become Tennessee’s new athletic director tomorrow.  LSU has put out a press release debunking that story and Tennessee officials say their search is moving forward.

Alleva said in LSU’s release: “This is not an opportunity that I pursued and Tennessee is a wonderful place.  But in the end I felt that Chancellor Martin has a great vision for LSU.”

He also said, “There is more work to be done and my heart bleeds purple and gold.”

Meanwhile, Tennessee spokesman Jimmy Stanton told Knoxville media outlets that his school’s search “remains in program.” 

As it turns out, Twitter reports from Knoxville spawned Twitter reports from Louisiana this afternoon.  Sadly, while Twitter may be fast, the folks using it are not always accurate.

For Alleva, it will be interesting to see if he gets a nice, fat raise in the not-so-distant future.  LSU’s chancellor cut short a trip to New Mexico to return to Baton Rouge and deal with Alleva face to face.

For Tennessee, the Vols’ AD search is beginning to take on the feel of the school’s post-Lane Kiffin football search.

Come to think of it, Derek Dooley was Louisiana Tech’s AD, too.  Maybe he’d be happy to be UT’s fallback once more.
