Fulmer Finished at UT

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's Phillip Fulmer has confirmed
he's leaving at the end of this season, implying that he's been
forced out after 17 years that included a national championship.

Fulmer, 58, his voice cracking and pausing to keep his composure, announced he will step aside at a news conference Monday afternoon. He said he was "accepting the university's decision."

Fulmer had a 150-51 record with the Vols, including the national championship in 1998. But Tennessee fell on hard times this season and fell to 3-6, including 1-5 in the Southeastern Conference after a 27-6 loss at South Carolina on Saturday.
