LOOK: Lane Kiffin trolls Phillip Fulmer on social media
Lane Kiffin is at it again.
The Florida Atlantic coach took another jab at his old school Friday, trolling former Volunteers coach and current athletic director Phillip Fulmer with a simple tweet. Kiffin, who coached the Vols in 2009, tagged Fulmer in a picture he took with former Tennessee coach Johnny Majors, whom Kiffin called “the greatest Tennessee Coach ever.”
To fully understand Kiffin’s troll, you have to untangle a historical web going back to Majors’ stint in Knoxville from 1977-92.
Fulmer served as interim coach for the first three games of 1992 while Majors recovered from heart surgery, leading the Vols to a 3-0 record. But the team finished just 9-3, prompting school administrators to force out Majors, a move that some still believe Fulmer had a hand in orchestrating.
Either way, Fulmer took over and coached Tennessee until 2008, when he was replaced by — you guessed it — Kiffin. Kiffin infamously bolted for USC after one year on Rocky Top, but he still hasn’t stopped poking fun at the Vols on social media.
