I thank my lucky charms that Fulmer has been content to stay retired and not accept a coaching position elsewhere. I will admit that I was really hoping that Tennessee would bring the Old Battle Captain back to the Hill in order to stabilize the Program.
He would have done well with the right staff. He would be able to recruit IMO, especially with that National Championship ring. I just can’t imagine watching him at a smaller school doing what Frank Solich did at Ohio this year. Back to back bowl wins at Ohio is unheard of. The Vols fanbase would be unbearable if Fulmer was winning somewhere else.
I was actually worried he would get the interim job at Arkansas this year. Thankfully he’s enjoyed retirement and speaking appearances, and he’s just a little too old
