Taylor returns to familiar place

I wrote a notebook for today's paper. Here's how the first item starts:

AUBURN, Ala. Auburn wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor is about as excitable as it gets, whether it's at a practice, an interview or a game.

So just because he's returning this weekend to Knoxville, where he was an assistant for four years, doesn't necessarily mean he'll be taking things to another level.

"I think he's at the level where you just can't crank it up anymore," Auburn coach Gene Chizik said. "I don't know that he can get more excited on a daily basis than he already is."

Taylor was a Vols assistant on Phil Fulmer's staff from 2004-07, coaching first running backs and then wide receivers during that time, holding an assistant head coach title as well. He was an integral part of recruiting a number of players still on Tennessee's roster, including safety Eric Berry and running back Montario Hardesty.
