The University of Tennessee has decided to go back to a familiar face to become their new AD, after the hiring of former head football coach Phillip Fulmer. Fulmer will be introduced some time today in Knoxville, after being hired this past Summer as an “Advisor to the community,” whatever that means. He was given the job a day after the Volunteers fired John Currie, who was just hired 8 months ago.
There are numerous reports out about how Fulmer has been behind the scenes lobbying and for this job and trying to sabbotage Currie during his search for a new coach, since Butch Jones was recently fired. I’m not too sure about all of that, but I do know that having a stronger personality in Rocky Top, will definitely help sooth whomever decides to accept the head coaching job in Knoxville, because lord knows it’s been an absolute mess since the firing of Phillip Fulmer in 2008.
