Vols hire Ekeler to coach outside linebackers, special teams

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) New Tennessee coach Josh Heupel has finalized his coaching staff by hiring Mike Ekeler as his outside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator.

Tennessee announced the hiring Thursday.

This will be the third different Southeastern Conference program Ekeler has worked for. He coached linebackers and special teams at Georgia in 2014 and 2015, and he was on LSU's staff earlier in his career. Ekeler and Heupel both were graduate assistants at Oklahoma in 2004.
