NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Peyton Manning said he still bleeds orange, and Albert Haynesworth said he hopes new coach Lane Kiffin works out at Tennessee.
That doesn't mean the former Volunteers are ready to embrace the guy who replaced their close friend and former coach, Phillip Fulmer.
Not when both remain disappointed that Fulmer was pushed out.
"Obviously, it's a big change there, so we'll see how it works out," the Colts quarterback said Wednesday in Indianapolis. "I wish him the best, obviously. My blood still bleeds orange."
Haynesworth, a defensive tackle with the Tennessee Titans, said he doesn't want Kiffin to fail.
He said he hopes the coaching change does not turn around and bite the boosters and athletic director Mike Hamilton.
