KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Phillip Fulmer remembers assuming he would coach again when Tennessee fired him in 2008.
Four years later, Fulmer still hasn't returned to the sidelines. He hasn't closed the door on the possibility of a comeback, but it seems less likely with each passing year. Fulmer said he's had chances to return, but the opportunities haven't been tempting enough.
The latest signal of potential closure comes Tuesday when Fulmer is inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, an honor that generally comes after retirement.
Fulmer will join former Miami coach Jimmy Johnson, former Texas A&M coach R.C. Slocum and 14 former players in getting inducted at a National Football Foundation awards dinner in New York. He posted a 152-52 record at Tennessee that included a 1998 national championship.
