Tennessee's six legacy freshmen met with the media for the first time as Vols on Friday afternoon. Check out what they had to say: #VolReport: Legacy Freshmen Open Up.
Brown led the Longhorns to a national championship in 2006 and won 244 games as a head coach while Fulmer led the Volunteers to a national title in 1998 and won 152 games as a head coach. Both Fulmer and Brown had assistants that won the Broyles Award including Tennessee offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe in 1998 and Texas offensive coordinator Greg Davis in 2005.
The selection committee has won a combined 2,263 games, coached in 178 bowl games and won 11 National Championships. The award is named in honor of former Arkansas head coach and athletic director Frank Broyles, who had 24 of his assistants become head coaches that led their teams to 8 Super Bowls, winning 6 of them, as well as 5 college national championships and over 2000 victories. Some of those assistants included Joe Gibbs, Barry Switzer, Jimmy Johnson, Johnny Majors and Hayden Fry.
