Kiffin warns 'people are going to come after' Vols football program

Austin Ward, Knoxville News Sentinel • Dec 11, 2009 at 12:00 AM

Lane Kiffin has not spoken with the NCAA.

The first-year Tennessee coach hasn't been contacted by the New York Times either.

But Kiffin clearly isn't running away from an investigation by one and doesn't seem all that shaken by a report from the other. If anything he only seemed annoyed Thursday to have to answer questions about his recruiting practices again in his first public comments since an NCAA review of the Vols came to light this week.

"I know that we've done a phenomenal job in recruiting," Kiffin said. "I know that it's very competitive around the country with the kids that we go after and within this conference. I think that anytime you're operating at the level we're operating at in recruiting, people are going to come after us."
