Phillip Fulmer was a first-ballot selection Tuesday for College Football Hall of Fame enshrinement.
Fulmer becomes the third University of Tennessee coach to be selected in the coaching category, joining Robert Neyland and Doug Dickey.
Johnny Majors and Bowden Wyatt were inducted as players, along with 17 other Vols.
Fulmer coached the Vols for three games as interim head coach in 1992 then took over full time in 1993.
He went 152-52 as head coach, a .745 winning percentage, until he was forced to resign effective at the end of the 2008 season.
Induction criteria require a coach be retired for three years. Fulmer was one of eight coaches on the ballot. Coaches have to have won 60 percent of their games over a career of at least 100 games.
Fulmer’s most celebrated season was 1998 when the Vols went 13-0 and won the BCS national championship. (via)108 days!!!
