I read today that he was very harsh on a TE for a mistake he made in a game, so harsh that the player almost got up and hit him. Player quit UT and went to Duke due to this type of issue. Take it for whatever it is worth.
Don’t know back story here so I might be off base (imagine that). I’ve always said the coach doesn’t throw interceptions, fumble, miss tackles, and drop passes, etc…so if you’re a coach riding an iron hot seat with you’re next loss possibly being you’re last, I can see where a couple of timely dropped balls contributing to that last loss would cause one to lets say, HOLLA at a player on the sideline. I realize one can ‘cross the line’ while ‘hollering’ at a player but I can only imagine what Butch might have said to make a player quit and transfer.
