Tusculum head coach Frankie DeBusk received a call on Friday from Torbush telling him of ETSU’s interest in Gaines.
“The timing is horrible, but that’s also our profession,” De-Busk said Tuesday. “Nothing personal to Teddy or Carl or ETSU. It’s just the nature of the business. I’m in the process of hiring his replacement. I think I’ve already got somebody in place.”
