A familiar face will be taking over the Tennessee Volunteer Athletic Department.
Currie Out, Fulmer In
Phillip Fulmer is expected to be announced as the new athletic director at today’s press conference.
While UT considered Reid Sigmon for interim AD job to replace the fired John Currie, Phillip Fulmer will be named the athletic director at the 4 pm presser, but don't know if full time or interim. With Fulmer at the helm, don't be surprised if pool of candidates opens up.

Yes, this was reported by Jimmy Hyams, who inadvertently reported Jeff Brohm was a done deal as Butch Jones’s replacement. Granted this report should be taken with a grain of salt, his track record suggests it’s unlikely he would put another momentous report out prematurely had he not been given confirmation.
It’s unknown whether or not Fulmer will take over on a full-time or interim basis. More will be known following the press conference.
