His work is done.

And what a legacy he leaves.

Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton will announce his resignation at a news conference Tuesday morning, sources with knowledge of the situation told ESPN.com’s Chris Low.

Hamilton has been the men’s athletic director since 2003.

Phil Fulmer is on the mother.


UPDATE:  Tennessee is reportedly paying a buyout to Hamilton of $1.335 million.  That’s nice work if you can get it.

    DJD! I’ll miss him like I miss Reggie Ball.

    When the Knoxville press tried to reach Mr. Fulmer at his home for comment, they received no answer but did find a copy of the bereavement press conference notice for Mike laying on the front porch with this, instead of an al-Queda #2 playing card, on it

    What a crook.

    Ufk folks are mostly fine people, and they are always great fans (will never forget how gracious they were exiting the stadium after the ’01 game) and absolutely did not deserve the finger in the ass that was Mike Hamilton. There is a special place in hell for that guy, and for the nitwits who put him in charge.

    What a dumb son-of-a-bitch.

    Odd that after all this time this comes on the week of UT’s meeting with the NCAA.

    It’s always reassuring to see people like Mike rewarded for their overall body of work. This frees him up now to adopt the Peasal Sisters because not only does he like their music…

    Man I sure wish somebody would pay me $1.333 Million to quit. I’d be gone at warp speed.
