Tennessee retailer to donate Lane Kiffin T-shirts to earthquake victims

January 13, 2010 |  3:12 pm

It appears a Knoxville, Tenn., apparel retailer has come up with the perfect way for Tennessee fans to get rid of their Lane Kiffin merchandise.

The owners of HoundDogs has decided to turn "a negative into a positive" by offering a 20% discount to any fan who donates Lane Kiffin T-shirts to earthquake recovery efforts in Haiti.

A manager at the store said owners Dan and Tona Burks came up with the plan when they saw fans destroying T-shirts with Kiffin's name and image on them.

Although it sort of helps people with two completely different problems, I hope someone else comes up with a plan to donate shirts to the victims of the Haitian earthquake.
