William Inge details why he was interested in joining Vols’ staff

William Inge was hired as Tennessee’s linebackers coach on Feb. 21.

He came to Tennessee after serving as co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Washington from 2022-23.

Inge met with media at Tennessee for the first time on Monday. He discussed why he was interested in the Vols.

“Because No. 1, I know the history, the tradition and the branding that this place has with that Power T and what it all represents,” Inge said. “The recruiting that you can be able to do here, but also, I am a fan of coach (Josh) Heupel as well. Being able to see the things that he has done with his background and his record, and then, when we got to talking.

“I think, I knew that I could have a big impact here in the group with respect to my position, helping the defensive staff, the overall staff, helping our football team, and that was something that was important to me.”
