    I can vouch for Tommy Deas. Great guy and a great opening. The T-News is top-notch.

    Matt Burrowes left our staff. His wife got a great job out of town that prompted the move. Matt did a great job for us and will be missed.

    The job description doesn't state so, but experience in the "war room" on a high school football Friday night is essential for this position. We haven't missed a high school football deadline since 2008 and we're not anxious to break the streak.

    Sounds like a good gig. I've worked with Tommy Deas before and can say that he was a pleasure to work with. Good folks over there at The Tuscaloosa News.

    Is this under the Alabama umbrella of CNHI? God forbid....

    I fear if CNHI owned it, they probably would have run it into the ground by now.

    Tommy is definitely good people. I've interned and done other work for him in the past. T-News has a great sports staff.
