If Tennessee fans are to be believed, not only is Volunteers coach Jeremy Pruitt on the hot seat, but current UT athletic director Phillip Fulmer should and/or will make a return to the sidelines to lead the much-maligned program. However, in Fulmer's opinion, those rumors can be put to bed -- full stop. 

Courtesy of Tennessee's IMG Network, the former Tennessee coach said that he "totally believes" in Pruitt, now in his second year, and added that "the coaching chapter of my life is long closed." 

"I love doing what I'm doing at UT, but I love more being with my family and my grandchildren," Fulmer said. "I'm still the assistant to the assistant pee-wee baseball coach and I'm the flag football coach. You can't do those things and ever coach. We got a really, really good coach and we need to make sure we appreciate that."
