Lee Fowler is garnering media attention….again. Can you believe it?
I guess this is the appropriate spot where we will add one of the dozens of links that we could add on the topic of Lee Fowler’s name being in lights!
This time the News and Observer showers him with praise for his availableness and willingness to “speak for his department”. First an award of excellence and now this. We are truly blessed to have such a man leading our athletic department. Read about how the reporters love our AD.
Evidently, Fowler held the role of color commentator for the radio broadcasts at Memphis from 1985-1994 while also working in the University’s booster club. This was his first role after serving as an assistant coach on the Memphis State basketball teams who were penalized by the NCAA for some of the most major violations in the history of college basketball. (The school formerly known as Memphis State) were forced by the NCAA to vacate their 1985 Final Four appearance and forfeit games won in those years. Fowlers former boss and the former head coach of the Tigers, Dana Kirk, spent time in federal prison later in life.
