Artis opened up on Tennessee’s Twitter account saying he brings leadership and hard work ethic to the position. He says his coaching style is just being him. Artis says, if he’s got to get hyped and get in their face, he’s going to do it and that Tennessee will never shortchange itself of greatness.
