Phillip Fulmer Talks “One Time Transfer” Rule, His Coaches And The Future Of Tennessee


Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer joined us on Fox Sports Knoxville this afternoon for a spirited conversation on a number of topics, including the potential new NCAA Transfer Rule.

Phillip Fulmer was very adamant on his stance about the “One Time Transfer:

“I don’t think we’re holding the kids accountable enough period to be honest with you. You come in and you’re not the starting whatever as a freshman and you got the chance to transfer, I don’t know if that’s healthy. I don’t know if that’s telling our youth the right thing. Fight through some things, after 30 hours of academic work or something, some number that makes you commit”

“That’s awful hard on the coaches, you know you got a guy then all the sudden you don’t, I don’t like anything about that. So, I’ll have a vote, but don’t think I’ll be making the decision”


Among the topics that were discussed:

His Transition to AD and how this process has been for him over the past two years

-The start of the 2019 season and the way the football team responded

The roller coaster year for Rick Barnes and the Tennessee Basketball team

An update on the renovations at Neyland Stadium and any kind of updated timetable 

What needs to be done to bring the fans back and the play of the football team heading into the 2020 season

The importance of having “Tennessee people” in charge at the university 

Will we hear anything soon regarding a contract extension for Jeremy Pruitt

His thoughts on the proposed transfer rules

The progression of the Tennessee baseball team and Tony Vitello
