Finally, a dose of stability.

If nothing else, the announcement that Cuonzo Martin will remain as Tennessee's basketball coach brings some sense of continuity to an athletics program that has been bouncing off the walls for the last several years.

Barring a surprise (and at UT there always seems to be a surprise just around the corner), this could be the first year since 2009 that there will not be a major personnel shift in the athletics department.

Think about it: Over the last five years, there have been changes involving football coaches, men's basketball coaches, women's basketball coaches and the athletics director.
