Fulmer Turns Down UT Paycheck

Former Tennessee coach Phil Fulmer has decided *not* to accept a position as a special assistant to the University of Tennessee.

The school announced Monday Fulmer was being hired for three months with a privately funded salary of $37 thousand, 5-hundred dollars to assist with fundraising and outreach efforts.

But after complaints at the Knoxville campus that Fulmers appointment was coming at a time when layoffs of non-tenured track faculty were being considered to meet up with state funding cuts, Fulmer has chosen instead to work as an alumni volunteer.
