KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The University of Tennessee said two attorneys from Kansas have been brought on to assist as the football program faces an internal investigation from the school’s compliance department regarding possible recruiting improprieties.

In a statement to WVLT, UT said, “We take seriously our institutional commitment to NCAA compliance, and are reviewing regulatory issues that have been brought to our attention. As part of that process, we are currently working with attorneys Kyle Skillman and Michael Glazier with Bond, Schoeneck & King. We will provide additional information when it’s appropriate.”

Vols head football coach Jeremy Pruitt and his staff are back working in the office on recruiting and preparing for players to return for the spring semester.
