Barry Alvarez famously took over the head coaching gig at Wisconsin under similar circumstances, and the same could easily happen here.

Fulmer previously served as head coach for 16 years – a tenure that culminated in a national championship and two SEC titles.

Tennessee will take on Chattanooga at home next weekend.

It remains to be seen who the coach will be when the two teams kick off.
