Chris Low:

Phillip Fulmer, who a decade ago brought Tennessee its first national championship in 47 years, will not return as the Volunteers' coach next year, multiple sources told

An announcement is being planned for later Monday at Neyland Stadium. The Vols (3-6, 1-5 SEC) have lost four straight games and are in danger of suffering their second losing season in the last four years.

The press conference is scheduled for 5 pm.

Thanks for many good memories, Coach.

And Yet

Yet the luxury sky boxes remain.
Now that's a legacy!

fewer seats, multiple millions on luxury sky boxes, the heck with the little people.

But what can the coach of a professional sports team expect from a losing season? Now he can watch from the comfort of his very own sky box! The man owns nearly as many homes as McCain.

Fewer or just smaller seats?

Well, he deserves a skybox.

Plus, I wouldn't want to wind up sharing a seat next to him. Those seats for the little people can't be much more than 12" wide.

I don't think the excessive

I don't think the excessive expenditures made by UT sports over the last few years are Fulmer's fault. Teams have bad seasons. It's a fact.

Financially speaking, UT sports shouldn't have expected the financial good times to go on forever, pouring more and more money into the department. I don't think the lack of conservative fiscal administration is Fulmer's fault. The fault is with the sports department's administration.

You are correct and my snark is misplaced.

Fulmer is a good guy as far as I can see.
