"I’m not looking for an extension. I am not seeking any extension and I think I just need to leave it at that," Phillips said. "I can’t really add anything." "I feel very good about the momentum we have," Phillips said. "I feel our total sports program is poised to continue to progress and do well. I’m pleased where we are. We are in good shape financially. ... We are stable with our (football) staff. "Hopefully we’ve done things that whenever we were to leave they can build on what we have done and take advantage of it. I feel good about the coaches we have in place."Post & Courier: TDP giving it up when contract expires. Not exactly news, as I was expecting him to call it quits when his contract expired in summer 2013. He doesn't want to fundraise or sell the AD, and my opinion of the Department's performance in all sports and his leadership is well-documented. I will only say that there are some powerful people who are nudging him out. We have worked on our list of possible replacements already, which we'll post in time, but I can tell you I do not want either Kyle Young or Billy D to get this job next summer.
