Fulmer to Step Down

Postby deerayfan072 » Mon Nov 03, 2008 11:17 am

Phillip Fulmer, who a decade ago brought Tennessee its first national championship in 47 years, will not return as the Vols' coach next year, multiple sources told ESPN.com.

An announcement is being planned for later Monday at Neyland Stadium. The Vols (3-6, 1-5 SEC) have lost four straight games and are in danger of suffering their second losing season in the last four years.

This is going to be a tough job to fill. SEC jobs are getting tougher and tougher to fill nowadays because of the ludicrous expectations that go along with them. Sure there's still tons of talent in the southeast but the best jobs to have are the jobs in the south (where the athletes are) that have great facilities but aren't in the SEC. (Think Clemson, FSU, GA Tech)

What I am afraid of as a Florida fan is Lane Kiffen going there.

I think Will Muschamp is the hire. He's a hot name right now , he's got an SEC background (LSU and Auburn) and he's got a pedigree for being a very high intensity coach.

Also, Tennessee looks to be paying out Fulmer's buyout in full. That's $6 million (they have 4 years to pay it out). I think I could live on the beach somewhere for $1.5 million a year.

effect on recruiting:
Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer was putting together one of the best recruiting classes in the nation before word of him stepping down leaked out Monday morning.

So, what do Tennessee's commitments do? Several say they're sticking with Tennessee. Others say they're taking a wait-and-see approach.
