Tennessee coaches reportedly gave recruits McDonald’s bags filled with cash

An ongoing internal investigation of the University of Tennessee has already resulted in the firing of head coach Jeremy Pruitt and several members of his coaching staff. And details of Tennessee’s corruption have begun to emerge, with one source telling Dan Patrick that potential recruits would receive McDonald’s bags from assistant coaches that were stuffed with cash instead of a Big Mac and fries.

“You literally had bag men,” Patrick said. “They put the cash in McDonald’s bags and handed it to the recruits. My source said they were so in your face with this — they weren’t even trying to hide it.”
