Tennessee has hired UCF athletic director Danny White as the Volunteers' new athletic director just three days after the firing of football coach Jeremy Pruitt and athletic director Phillip Fulmer's retirement.
Chancellor Donde Plowman announced the hiring Thursday, noting Tennessee handled this search with urgency. She said officials had enough interest in the position to be able to move quickly.
"Danny White is an innovative leader in college athletics with a strong track record in recruiting and developing leaders," Plowman said in the release. "He brings the combination of winning attitude, competitive drive, and dedication to integrity and academics that we are looking for."
