KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The University of Tennessee has hired Bob Welton as director of player personnel after he spent the past nine years as a scout with the NFL's Cleveland Browns.
Coach Butch Jones announced the hiring Tuesday, saying that Welton's experience in the NFL and as a head coach will be key for the Vols.
