Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer Rules Out Return as Coach

Published

Tennessee Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer ruled out a potential return as the Vols head coach, saying he no desire to return to the sideline and that the “coaching chapter of my life is closed”, according to ESPN’s Chris Low.

Fulmer, 69, led the Vols to a national championship in 1998. Fulmer was fired at the end of the 2008 season following a second losing season in four years.

“We’ve got a good football coach, and I believe in Jeremy Pruitt totally,” Fulmer said. “I have no interest in coaching again and would rather spend that time being a grandfather and doing whatever I can as athletic director in helping Jeremy get this program where we all want it to be. Any talk of me coaching again is just a bunch of rumors.”

Fulmer’s only focus is being the AD at his alma mater.

“I’m way past that point in my life,” Fulmer said. “I love the job I have [as AD] and am committed to seeing this thing through.”

“Jeremy Pruitt is as bought in as anybody could possibly be bought in at the University of Tennessee,” Fulmer said.
