    Was this Hopp's old gig? Or was that longer ago?

    It was Kuharsky's spot. I believe he's left to go to ESPN.com

    Will ESPN.com ever stop hiring? Pretty amazing (in a good way). I just hope they never cut back. That would be ugly.

    Surprised to see Gannett offering this job -- I thought they'd tell Tennessean to "do more with less" and work the top beat guy to death. Regardless, great gig for who gets it.

    Newspaper has improved somewhat in the last year -- still not top shelf, but better IMHO.

    It's going to catch up to them eventually... Some bean counter is going to point out that they're spending over $1 million a year in salary on NFL writers who write twice a week for the website.

    It would be one thing if these guys could double and go on camera, but it's safe to say that the majority of these guys will never be on camera.

    Fortunately, most of them got 3-year-deals.
  7. Why is this job posted on Career Builder, and not conventional journalism job sites?

    because careerbuilder is a gannett site and costs them nothing.

    Tennessean's No. 1 writer on this beat is Jim Wyatt, and he truly is an ace and a great guy as well. The new No. 2 person will be plenty busy, but working with Wyatt will be a pleasure.

    Kuharsky is going to ESPN? Really...
    I wouldn't piss on Kuharsky if he was on fire. Calling that dude a douche is an insult to douches everywhere.

    wow! can't think of a time when I hated someone that much. Didn't the Tennessean get a new SE a year or so ago?
