Tony Vitello and the Tennessee Volunteers are off to a great start to the 2022 season. So far, the Vols have an overall record of 32-3 and have an SEC record of 13-1.

But, on Saturday night in a 9-2 win over Alabama, Vitello and pitching coach Frank Anderson were ejected following a confrontation with the umpire.

Vitello bumped the umpire during the altercation, and now it is reported that he has been suspended for 4 games. Anderson received a 1-game ban:

Anderson will serve his suspension on Sunday in the rubber game against the Tide. Vitello will be eligible to return next Sunday at Florida.

How will the Vols fare on Sunday without the 2 important coaches? We’ll find out at 1 p.m. ET on SEC Network+.
