Fulmer handles final walk with class

KNOXVILLE — Cross John Majors Way.
Take a left on Lake Loudoun Boulevard.
Turn right on Volunteer Boulevard.
Bear right on Peyton Manning Pass.

At the bottom of the hill, turn left on Phillip Fulmer Way.
Insert irony here.
In good times, they name streets after you. In bad times, they make you walk the plank on a street that bears your name.
This might have been the longest walk of Phillip Fulmer’s life. On his last day as University of Tennessee football coach, Fulmer led his team on the traditional Vol Walk from the Neyland-Thompson Sports Complex to Neyland Stadium.
