2003 president and board members. (A Post-Convention Special Report).
Fulmer, former first vice-president of the AFCA, succeeds outgoing president Glen Mason of Minnesota U. Fulmer was elected in January at the Association's convention in New Orleans. "I'm obviously very excited about the opportunity. It's a great honor," Fulmer said. "I'm particularly proud to be a part of the efforts we've made under Grant Teaff. A lot of work has been done and I'm looking forward to continuing it."
The AFCA, founded in 1922 by Amos Alonzo Stagg, John Heisman, and others, has more than 9,000 members from all levels of the coaching profession. According to its constitution, the AFCA was formed, in part, to "maintain the highest possible standards in football and the coaching profession," and to "provide a forum for the discussion and study of all matters pertaining to football and coaching."
In addition to Fulmer, 2003 AFCA officers include first vice-president Ken Hatfield, Rice U.; second vice-president Paul Pasqualoni, Syracuse U., and third vice-president Scot Dapp of Moravian College.
Also serving on the Board will be: Mel Tjeerdsma, Northwest Missouri State U.; Ron Randleman, Sam Houston State U.; Ken Sparks, Carson-Newman College; John Mackovic, U. of Arizona; Larry Kehres, Mount Union College; Tyrone Willingham, U. of Notre Dame; Todd Berry, U.S. Military Academy; Tony Samuel, New Mexico State U.; Rob Ash, Drake U.; Chuck Amato, North Carolina State U.; Lloyd Cam U. of Michigan and Rob Ianello, U. of Arizona, ex officio member and chairman of the Assistant Coaches Committee.
Carr and Ianello are newly-elected members of the Board this year. AFCA Executive Director Grant Teaff serves as secretary-treasurer of the organization.
Fulmer joins Johnny Majors (1990) as the second Volunteers coach to serve as president of the AFCA. He was first elected to the Board of Trustees in 1996.
Fulmer recently completed his 11th season at Tennessee. He has a career record of 103-25 (.805) and has led the Vols to 10 or more wins in a season six times, including 49 victories in the last five years. From 1995 to 1998, Tennessee was 45-5, the most wins in a four-year span in school history.
