Phillip Fulmer 50 years giving his all for UT

98

The Tennessean, January 5, 1999

The Tennessee football program changed directions for the better on December 1, 2017. After a coaching search that went through many coaching candidates that either remained at their present schools or Tennessee fans exercised their voices of displeasure to move on to another coaching candidate, the search ended with two choices that have placed Volunteer football back on stable grounds and on the right direction going forward.

Phillip Fulmer was brought in as athletics director and made a calm and swift head coaching hire for his first choice in Jeremy Pruitt. Pruitt is now on the eve of his first game day.

Fall 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Fulmer arriving at UT as a freshman.

As a former Tennessee football student-athlete from 1968-71, a UT assistant coach from 1980-1992 and a national-championship-winning full-time head coach that won two SEC championships between 1993-2008, Fulmer is the right person at the right time overseeing the Tennessee football program back to a championship level and also leading the way for a coming together as a university as a whole.

Fulmer is the second-winningest coach in Tennessee football history, establishing a 152-52 career record that spanned over 17 seasons. His win total as a head coach only trails General Robert Neyland’s 173 career wins at Tennessee.
