Johnny Majors was a guest on the morning show of our local sports station this morning and was posed the question, "What happened in the last few years at Tennessee that led to Phil Fulmer's firing?" The answer was pretty interesting. Apparently Johnny doesn't think too much of ole Phil (probably goes without saying). He basically said that NFL scouts stopped spending time there because they didn't need much time to evaluate the players. They knew the talent level was dropping. There was a lack of discipline, and he couldn't understand why the university was wasting so much money giving a guy extensions after winning 8 games a season. He went on to say, "John Chavis saved Phil Fulmer's job for those last 4-5 years. He was the only thing keeping the team from completely going under." He said that he knew Chavis was a great coach when he hired him in 1989, and that he was going to do a fine job with LSU. Throughout his narrative, it was pretty obvious the high regard in which he held Chavis, and the vitriol he held for Fulmer.
