Why would we bring Fulmer back?Ans. To hire the next HC at the University of Tennessee and I'm talking about the one we would have AFTER Fulmer. If we can't get a proven coach that has experience as an HC, then we don't want to make another roll of the dice with an assistant. I would hire Fulmer as a 4-5 year "interim" coach (yes, but "headcoach in waiting" was radical also), and task him with hiring UT's next HC that would be either the OC or DC off his staff depending on who works out.
While Fulmer's hiring of the coach from Richmond as his OC was one of the reasons we're in this ordeal, he was limited by funds - he wasn't given the money to hire someone like, say, Kippy Brown as the OC. When the story is written someday, I think the downfall may well be traced to that decision to not let Fulmer spend the money to get his OC. That decision led to Kiffin and Dooley.
