KNOXVILLE — Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer has received a four-year contract, the university announced Thursday.

Fulmer had been working as an at-will employee since replacing John Currie on Dec. 1.

Fulmer's contract will run through Dec. 31, 2021. He'll earn $1 million annually. That figure is comprised of his base salary ($300,000), supplemental pay ($600,000) and annual retention bonus ($100,000) that's due if he remains AD on Dec. 31 each year throughout the duration of his contract.

He's also eligible for up to $300,000 annually in performance bonuses. Those bonus figures will be determined by Tennessee's graduation success rate and its standing in the Director's Cup. More about Fulmer’s deal from the our partners at the Knoxville News Sentinel.
