Phillip Fulmer asked about Vols' Notice of Allegations stemming from Jeremy Pruitt era
Former Tennessee athletic director and football coach Phillip Fulmer will be keeping a low profile while the school deals with the NCAA notice of allegations served last week.
Spoke briefly with former AD Phillip Fulmer about Tennessee’s NCAA notice of allegations (among other things).
He declined comment and said he’s under the same confidentiality as UT administration during the active case.

The NCAA handed Tennessee a 51-page report that covered 18 Level I violations. The report outlined cash payments made to players by former coach Jeremy Pruitt, his wife Casey, coaches and boosters.
Pruitt and the majority of his staff were fired on January 18, 2021, after an internal investigation revealed recruiting violations. Pruitt spent the 2021 season as a defensive assistant with the New York Giants.
Fulmer spent four years as Tennessee AD before retiring in 2021. He spent 17 seasons as head coach of the Volunteers, going 152-52 with a BCS Championship in 1998.
Tennessee online sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
