Lambuth’s Wallace
leaving team’s sideline

Longtime Lambuth University head football coach Vic Wallace will not be the man patrolling the team’s sideline in 2008.
Wallace was offered and he has taken the title of Special Assistant to the President for Athletics.
In 15 years as the Eagles’ skipper, Wallace posted a 98-64-1 record with four conference championships and six appearances in the NAIA playoffs.
Over the course of his 27-year career as a head coach, Wallace accumulated a 176-109-5 mark.
No replacement has been named although a search committee has been organized by the university for his successor.

Haynesworth sits;
LenDale works out

NASHVILLE (AP) — Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth sat out a light practice Wednesday with the Tennessee Titans, but he said he hopes his right hamstring recovers enough so he can play Monday night in Denver.
Haynesworth missed his first game this season last weekend in a 28-13 loss to Jacksonville, and the Titans (6-3) gave up a season-high 166 yards rushing without him. He said sitting out was tough.
LenDale White, who left the Jaguars game with an injured knee, worked out Wednesday. He said he ran and felt fine. Chris Brown, who has missed four straight games with a sprained ankle, was not on the injury report.
