Hamilton was the worst AD in UT history. I can remember reading all of the idiotic posts and listening to all of the idiotic callers to the sports talk shows who said that UT needed to emulate other universities and hire a bean counter as AD. They got their wish, and a bean counter WAS hired as athletics director. That bean counter then promptly directed the men's athletics programs into the dumper.
Hamilton's hire led the men's track program downward. His hire let the baseball program tank. His hire led the NCAA to the men's basketball program's door. His first football HC hire could only get by his first couple of months before being reprimanded by SEC commissioner Mike Slive. And the university wasn't through paying for the hiring of Kiffin 3 years after he left: last November the NCAA extended Tennessee's recruiting probation by two years. His 2nd football hire ... well, we all know how that one went.
Before Hamilton, UT's athletics budget operated in the black. Now, the university is trying to dig out of a ton of debt after gross mismanagement.
Now, who's the idiot who is trying to blame this on Fulmer?
