Matt Luke: 'Fulmer is one of my mentors'

ATLANTA — Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke debuted in his first SEC Media Days and he discussed one of his mentors in former Tennessee head coach and current UT athletics director Phillip Fulmer.

Luke played center at Ole Miss from 1995-98.

His coaching career before becoming a head coach at his alma mater had a stint at Tennessee during Fulmer’s head coaching tenure.

Luke spent two seasons at Tennessee where he served as recruiting coordinator while coaching tight ends and assisting with the offensive line from 2006-07.

“I really learned a lot from Coach Fulmer,” Luke said. “Him being a former offensive line coach at his alma mater, there are some similarities there.

“Coach Fulmer has been successful whatever he has done and he will do a great job with that program (as athletics director). He is a really good man and I consider him as one of my mentors.”
