Phillip Fulmer on his role in bringing football back to ETSU

Local

A new rivalry is hitting the field for the first time. One that pits a powerhouse against a hometown program ready to prove they are worthy of the national spotlight. 

News channel 11 is live at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville as the Tennessee Volunteer’s take on the East Tennessee State University Buccaneers. 

Today’s game has more meaning for Vol’s Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer. While Fulmer needs no introduction in Big Orange Country, he was instrumental in getting the football program at ETSU back on it’s feet.
