LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis is focused on beating another Southeastern Conference opponent this week.

That team just happens to be his alma mater and the place he spent 20 years coaching.

Chavis insists he's moved on and won't be talking with his former players when the Volunteers visit LSU on Saturday.

It's been nearly two years since Chavis stoically gathered his belongings and left Tennessee's Neyland Stadium for the last time, ending a 20-year career at his alma mater with a strong defensive
performance over Kentucky.

The man known to his players and colleagues as "Chief" probably would have stayed at Tennessee for the rest of his career, given the chance.

But his boss Phillip Fulmer was fired, and Chavis found a home almost immediately at LSU as the Tigers' defensive coordinator.
