Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

So, let me try and get this straight. Todd Turner ran the search for Pittsburgh AD Scott Barnes -- who just hired Kevin Stallings. Turner hired Kevin Stallings when he was the AD at Vandy in the late 1990s. Then Turner went to Washington where he was the AD (hired in 2004) and Barnes was a senior associate AD (hired in 2005). Now it makes sense, I guess.
