    New Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt is set to hold his first coaching clinic as the Vols’ head coach, and he has some big names set to join him.

    Pruitt’s coaching clinic will be from April 5th through the 7th, and according to a report from Gridiron Now, he will be joined by a trio of Tennessee legends. Tennessee Athletics Director and former head coach Phillip Fulmer, former Vol quarterback Peyton Manning, and former Vol offensive coordinator and current Duke head coach David Cutcliffe will headline Pruitt’s coaching clinic.

    Vol fans know how powerful a trio of Fulmer, Manning, and Cutcliffe can be. The three combined to put together some of the best offenses in Tennessee history in the mid-late 1990s, and Fulmer and Cutcliffe helped lead the Vols to the 1998 National Championship. Fulmer now serves as Tennessee’s AD, and Cutcliffe has been one of the most successful head football coaches in Duke history. Manning set several records for the Vols then went on to do the same in the NFL all while earning five MVP awards and two Super Bowl rings.

    Fulmer has the second-most wins in Tennessee history behind only General Robert Neyland. Manning still holds almost all of Tennessee’s major passing records 20 years after he played his last snap for the Vols. He was recently inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and he will be a first ballot Hall of Famer in the NFL as well. Cutcliffe has the third-most wins in Duke football history. He’s appeared in the most bowl games in Blue Devil history as well.

    The coaching clinic will be open to current high school coaches and other coaches at higher levels.
