Local News

University of Tennessee basketball head coach Rick Barnes went on a “Thank You Tour” in Knoxville thanking the people and businesses who supported him.

Many businesses offered free food to Barnes if he stayed in Knoxville instead of heading to UCLA for their head coaching position.

The official Twitter account for UT Basketball tweeted the video out Saturday.

In the video it shows Barnes giving gift baskets in exchange for the free food that was offered to him by Scrambled Jake’s, Hard Knox Pizza, Stock and Barrell and many other places.

“There are so many great people in this town, it’s a great place to live,” said Barnes in the video.
