Tyndall's task at Tennessee already tougher

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Donnie Tyndall just took over Tennessee's program on Tuesday, yet his job already has gotten tougher.

Tyndall knew when he was hired that he'd have to replace four of the top five scorers from a team that went 23-14 and reached an NCAA regional semifinal this season. Now the former Southern Mississippi coach must rebuild a recruiting class that has been decimated since his arrival.

Tennessee granted releases Wednesday to guards Larry Austin Jr. and Jordan Cornish, who signed letters of intent before former Volunteers coach Cuonzo Martin left for California. Tyndall said Thursday he still wants to talk to forwards Phil Cofer and CJ Turman - the other two recruits to sign with Tennessee in November - but he believes they also are leaning toward seeking releases.
