Coach Phillip Fulmer — Legendary Former Head Coach of University of Tennessee Vols Football

This presentation is from our cityCURRENT signature speaker series event on Friday, May 6, 2022, featuring Coach Phillip Fulmer, University of Tennessee 1998 National Championship Coach and member of the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame.

Coach Fulmer served as Head Football Coach at Tennessee for 17 years, from 1992 to 2008. He and his staff built an organization that produced the most successful era in modern Tennessee football history. Fulmer’s family approach in developing and guiding his young men on and off the field gave him the opportunity to mentor some of the top names in college and NFL history, including Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, Eric Berry, Chad Clifton, Al Wilson, and Jason Witten to name a few.

In Coach’s last 11 years, he played in the SEC Championship game five times, winning twice. He also led the Vols to one of the greatest moments in school history, the 1998 National Championship in the very first BCS title game. In his 17 seasons, he had 92 players make an NFL roster, 18 players earn All-American honors and another 68 players were selected All-SEC. This all led up to an induction into the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame in 2012.

This event was hosted by ServiceMaster by Cornerstone.
