The incident came to light when the coordinator was asked about coaching from the sidelines instead of the coaches' booth in the press box.
''It's been OK but I got the crap knocked out of me last week,'' Chavis replied. ''I didn't like that very much. I learned to get out of the way in a hurry.''
When pressed for details, the coordinator added: ''I got run over by a quarterback. Isn't that something?''
Jones is a 6-5, 215-pounder with remarkable speed and power, proved difficult for Vol defenders to tackle all evening. ''I guess he ran over a bunch of people,'' Chavis conceded, ''but it probably hurt me the worst.'' At this point, yours truly smugly noted: ''At least YOU brought him down ...'' Yeah,'' Chavis said. ''No doubt about that. But I had a hard time getting him off of me.''
