Phillip Fulmer is a former American football player and coach.

He served as head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers football team from 1992 to 2008, compiling a 152–52 record.

He is best known for coaching the Volunteers in the first ever BCS National Championship Game in 1998, defeating Florida State University.

Fulmer was the Volunteers' 20th head football coach.

At the end of his tenure at Tennessee, Fulmer had the second-highest number of wins of any head coach in Tennessee history, 21 behind Robert Neyland.

Fulmer also was the third coach in Tennessee history to win a claimed national championship.

His 1997 and 1998 teams remain as the last teams to win consecutive SEC championships.

Despite a decline in the later years of his career, he was considered by many to be an icon of college football, especially one of institutional loyalty.

In recognition of his accomplishments at Tennessee, Fulmer was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012.

Fulmer currently serves as a special assistant to the athletic director at East Tennessee State University.
