Vols promote Larry Scott, hire Mike Canales as QB coach

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee has promoted Larry Scott to offensive coordinator and has hired Mike Canales as quarterbacks coach, bringing the two former South Florida colleagues back together.

After former offensive coordinator Mike DeBord announced earlier this month that he was leaving for the same position at Indiana , Jones said he wanted to "enhance" the offense but didn't anticipate making "monumental changes." The decision to promote from within to replace DeBord reflects that approach.

"You spend all your career working hard, being diligent, trying to be out in front of everything, (on the) cutting edge, learning as much as you can everywhere you go, taking every experience and opportunity as a learning opportunity so that one day these types of opportunities present themselves," Scott said at a news conference Friday. "I'm super excited."
