An Updated Hot Board for the Vols’ Coaching Search

Phillip Fulmer

Quick Bio: Phillip Fulmer is one of the most recognizable names and faces in Tennessee sports. He helped lead the Vols to the 1998 national title and over 150 wins during his tenure as head coach. Fulmer is back in the employ of the university, and many fans want him used as a one-year bridge or possibly longer.

Pros: Fulmer led the Vols to a national title, and Tennessee hasn’t been the same since he was fired in 2008. Hiring him back would win over a large portion of Vol fans, and it would give Fulmer a chance to go out in a much better way than he did almost a decade ago.

Cons/Questions: Fulmer already works for UT, and he doesn’t appear to have a desire to get back into coaching. This is likely just a fantasy in every way imaginable, even if it might be a way to bring a stabilizing force into the football program before hiring your long-term coach.
