Fulmer: UT paying a price for lack of loyalty

By  | 

NEW YORK (WVLT) -- Almost two years after his ouster, former Tennessee football coach Phillip Fulmer continues to speak out about the negative effect the coaching change has had on the Vols.

"Our school has probably paid a pretty big price financially and from a reputation standpoint with the transition [from Fulmer to Lane Kiffin]," Fulmer said in an interview with CBS College Sports, for whom he serves as an analyst.

"It doesn't make any sense, the cultural change that was tried," Fulmer said. "We have a lot of great things at Tennessee. You don't have to go and flip it. It didn't work."

Fulmer added that he likes new Vols coach Derek Dooley and thinks he's "going to do fine." The UT legend's issue relates to the circumstances that led to his forced resignation following the 2008 season.

"I think from a personal standpoint or professional standpoint loyalty is very important," Fulmer said.
