 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Coaching in the SEC means taking home some of the biggest paychecks in college football - and managing some of the greatest expectations in the sport.
The Southeastern Conference will play for its seventh consecutive national title this year. As the championship total has increased, so has the pressure to win.
Arkansas, Auburn, Kentucky and Tennessee fired their coaches this year. No other league has dismissed more than two coaches thus far.
Volunteers athletic director Dave Hart says, ``This league, it's a different world.''
Kentucky has filled its vacancy, going with Florida State defensive coordinator Mark Stoops. He replaced Joker Phillips, who went 13-24 in three years.
Arkansas, Auburn and Tennessee are still searching.
