KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -

Former Tennessee assistant strength and conditioning coach Troy Wills faces burglary and vandalism charges after police say he broke into an office at Thompson-Boling Arena and stole $4,150.
 
According to a University of Tennessee police report, a video camera showed Wills carrying a saw in his right hand while walking toward the office Saturday at about 3:50 a.m. Police say he later walked off camera, returned with another saw, walked to the main entrance of the office and was seen leaving the building at 4:31 a.m.
 
Police say he was the only person seen coming in and out of the room during those hours. Several doors, fixtures and appliances reportedly were spray-painted orange.
 
Wills, 37, joined Tennessee's strength staff in 2003. He was fired after the 2011-12 season.
