The University of Tennessee knows how to do damage control. After the firing of Athletic Director John Currie, they announce Tennessee legend Phillip Fulmer New Acting Director Tennessee.
Tennessee has suffered major backlash through the Schiano episode. In an effort to put the innocent in the past, they fire Currie and put Fulmer as AD.
A great move on the University’s part as fans and social media will instantly be satisfied. Fulmer is Orange royalty as he was the Head Coach in the 90’s when Tennessee competed for National Titles.

With in an hour the program is on a new path in the right direction. Fulmer was an advisor to the program all along and likely has his eye on a HC.
Additionally, the board trusts his opinion implicitly and will stand behind any decision he makes. This should fat track the hiring for the new head coaching position.
The new era fans have begged for is currently upon us. Will Fulmer get us the head coach we have been wanting for just as long is the next question.
