Fulmer Interested In UConn Job?

Connecticut athletic director Jeff Hathaway says his school’s search for a new head football coach — to replace Randy Edsall — will be “quick” but the school will “be diligent.”  Already a surprising name has popped up in connection with the Huskies job.

According to The Hartford Courant, “A source confirmed that former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer is interested in the UConn job.”

Jim Wogan of WATE-TV in Knoxville reports today that “a source close to Phillip Fulmer” says the coach “may indeed have an interest” in UConn’s job and “may look into” it.

Or this could be yet another push for Fulmer to keep his name in the hopper.  When contacted by Minnesota representative Tony Dungy in November, Fulmer said nice things about the Gopher program before admitting that the fit was not right (meaning he wisely wasn’t going to go to a second-class program up North and compete against Ohio State, Penn State and Nebraska).

The Big East is currently a weak sister conference and Connecticut just won the league (and reached a BCS bowl) for the first time.  Those are positives. 

But would Fulmer really want to work so hard at recruiting?  If you think Tennessee is a tough state to recruit in, consider Connecticut.  The rich ground of Georgia was always just a few hours south of Knoxville.  Where would Fulmer go at UConn?  Vermont?  New Hampshire?

Another “hot name” connected to the UConn job — according to The Courant — is KC Keeler of FCS national champion Delaware. 

So the Huskies might have to choose between the former FBS national champion Fulmer and the current FCS national champion Keeler?  Sorry, but it’s hard to picture this story having legs.

Here’s guessing Fulmer is simply letting his name swirl around a bit.

Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as New York, are a lot closer to Storrs than you think. While not Texas, California, Florida or Ohio, they are still very fertile recruiting states. Our facilities are top-notch, and the fan base is rabid. Like Jim Calhoun said in 1986--an I'm paraphrasing here--Connecticut is a diamond in the rough waiting for the right coach.

Must be false since they don't have Krispy Kremes in the Northeast, they only have Dunkin Donuts. There is a big difference!

  1. [...] Probably.  Is he interested enough to really take the Connecticut job if offered?  Probably not.As we stated yesterday, Fulmer is likely more interested in keeping his name in the spotlight.  It’s not like other [...]

    I work for a company that is wanting to e-mail some of our media contacts from our Press Release blog posts. The main problem I am running into is finding a service that doesn’t require opt-in. Does anybody have any suggestions?.
