HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer denied reports Thursday that he was served with a subpoena to testify in an Alabama court case while appearing at the annual Southeastern Conference football media days.
The Tuscaloosa News reported that Fulmer was served with the document inside the hotel where the event was held. A clerk in Jackson County confirmed to The Associated Press that the subpoena was issued Wednesday, but did not know whether it had been given to Fulmer.
``I don't know anything about a subpoena,'' Fulmer said.
Attorneys have been seeking his sworn statements in a lawsuit filed by former Alabama booster Wendell Smith against the NCAA. The clerk said Fulmer was ordered to appear to give a deposition on Sept. 25 in Birmingham. The date is two days before Tennessee plays at Auburn.
Fulmer participated in SEC media days by telephone from Tennessee four years ago. That move let him avoid coming to Alabama and possibly being forced to testify in another case involving an NCAA investigation of the Crimson Tide.
