Don’t Expect Fulmer To Be UT’s Next AD

Earlier this week Phillip Fulmer told ESPN that he and his family would discuss their plans for the future and wait to see if the University of Tennessee administration would approach him about its soon-to-be vacant AD position.

MrSEC.com has learned that Fulmer will need to apply like anyone else if he’s to get consideration.  And even then that consideration is unlikely to be too strong.

Sources have confirmed reports that UT chancellor Jimmy Cheek is interested in finding an athletic director candidate who is currently serving in such a post elsewhere.  And while the Vol job is a tough sell at the moment — NCAA probation on the horizon, lengthy contracts for football and basketball coaches that a new AD will have to inherit — the school’s decision to combine its men’s and women’s athletic departments was a step taken with the express goal of making the job more appealing to “name” candidates.

While Fulmer certainly has ties to Tennessee as well as the support of many fans and ex-players, it would be an enormous surprise if the ex-football coach landed the AD gig.  In fact, it would likely take the schools’ biggest boosters swinging their wallets around to force Fulmer into the AD’s office.  And that’s not going to happen.

We believe in saying “never say never” and we’ll toss that caveat in here, too.  But according to this site’s sources, Fulmer does not fit the criteria put in place for Tennessee’s search.

As we wrote last night, we at MrSEC.com expect UT to soon announce that a search firm has been retained in an effort to track down a proven candidate.
