Q & A: Heupel talks Vols, Chattanooga, dodgeball, Heisman and more

Tennessee Athletics photo by Andrew Ferguson / Tennessee second-year football coach Josh Heupel continues to appreciate the commitment from last year's team and is excited about the potential of his second season in Knoxville.

During his Thursday appearance in Atlanta for the Southeastern Conference media days event, Tennessee second-year football coach Josh Heupel took some time to discuss Chattanooga, dodgeball, the 2000 Heisman Trophy race and, of course, all things Volunteers.

Q: This time last year, you had yet to visit Chattanooga. I know you made a Big Orange Caravan stop, but have you had time to take in the city?

A: I've been able to go through there this summer a little bit, and that's a cool downtown area. Obviously it's hugely important to us on the recruiting side of it, and it's a huge part of our fan base. It's a cool city, and I'm looking forward to spending more time down there.
