Mike Hamilton's Replacement Is A Lady! (For Now)

Tennessee is one of the few major-college athletics programs in the country to field two directors, one for men's sports and one for women's, and according to Knoxville radio, the latter is about to take over for the former: Lady Vols' athletic director Joan Cronan, will serve as interim AD for all sports in the absence of Mike Hamilton while the university searches for a replacement candidate.

That replacement will also be Cronan's eventual replacement -- according to the Knoxville News-Sentinel, the new AD position will helm both departments, with Cronan moving up to serve in the school's chancellor's office in 2012. 

And if I ran the zoo, she'd have the job outright if she wanted it. The woman has worked side-by-side with Pat Summitt for so long that an untold volume of Summitt's death-ray stare power must have leached into her body through osmosis. If you've ever looked into her eyes, you already know: Nobody, pampered player or entitled coach, would dare put a toe out of line on her watch.
