(AP) ATLANTA - Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin said he is "very confident" the NCAA's inquiry into the university's student ambassador program will reveal no rules violations by his staff.
Kiffin and Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer visited Atlanta on Thursday to preview the Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Bowl.
A smiling Kiffin drew a laugh when asked by a fan what has been the biggest challenge of his first year as the Vols' coach, he said, "Following all the rules."
Female members of the school's Orange Pride ambassador group traveled nearly 200 miles to a high school football game where three players are being recruited by Kiffin's staff.
Kiffin said the NCAA has interviewed Tennessee recruits, but has not contacted him.
