Tennessee AD Dave Hart Admits It Was A Mistake Hiring Donnie Tyndall

Donnie Tyndall is out as Tennessee's men's basketball coach. The 44-year-old coach is the subject of an NCAA investigation centered on the Southern Miss program he ran from 2012-14. 

The firing of Tyndall is a result of the potential sanctions that could be placed on Tyndall as a result of the investigation, Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said. 

During a press conference this morning, Hart admitted it was probably a mistake hiring Tyndall in the first place.
