Todd Raleigh out at Tennessee?

According to Jimmy Hyams of WNML-AM, Tennessee head coach Todd Raleigh will be fired on Sunday after the Volunteers complete the 2011 season. It has been a tough season in Knoxville for the Volunteers as they are 24-29 while being a disappointing 6-22 in SEC play. Raleigh has never qualified for the SEC Tournament during his four year tenure with the Vols.

Jimmy Hyams posted the following tweet about the coaching change:

It would be very interesting if Tennessee went the way of hiring Chris Burke as the head coach since he has no collegiate coaching experience after a six year MLB playing career.
