KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — SI.com has a good story on former Tennessee coach Philip Fulmer’s role in East Tennessee State’s start-up football program.

“I’m certainly not retired,” Fulmer told SI’s Zac Ellis. “People ask me all the time, ‘How are you doing with retirement?’ I’m certainly not retired. I’ve got like three jobs it seems like.”

ETSU ultimately hired Carl Torbush, a coaching veteran who is well-liked and respected in the business. ETSU plays its first game in 2015.
