Local sports talk show hosts say the lack of support from fans pushed Cuonzo Martin away from Vol Nation.
KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A number of Pilot Flying J workers have been fired or quit since the fuel rebate scandal, according to a letter to customers from Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam.
The letter is a progress report in Haslam's response to the scandal.
Haslam writes that Pilot's audit team has completed its initial review of manual diesel discounts and sent checks to customers who had a discrepancy in their favor.
In addition, six sales team members have resigned or been terminated.
Pilot has also hired a new vice president and named a vice president of sales, but Pilot has yet to hire a chief compliance officer.
Haslam explains it has taken longer than expected due to the importance of getting the right person for the job.
Five pilot workers have pleaded guilty to charges including fraud and conspiracy since the April raid at the company's headquarters.
