Former Tennessee head football coach Johnny Majors spoke at the Montgomery Quarterback Club meeting that happened on October 26 at 6:45 p.m.. Tickets to get into the event costed $30 at the door and did require a reservation due to the high number of people wanting to attend. Prior to Majors’ speech, there was a social hour and a dinner provided that allowed people to mingle a little bit before the main event. Overall it was a great turnout, and the former coach did an excellent job talking to the crowd and getting everyone pumped up about football.
The Lynchburg, Tennessee native was an athlete during high school and ended up attending the University of Tennessee where he became a Heisman Trophy winner in 1956 and an All-American player. For just one year in 1957 Majors played for the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes before going back to his home state to begin a coaching career for the University of Tennessee. He worked with the teams at Mississippi State and the University of Arkansas before landing a head coach position with Iowa State where he stayed for four years. Majors also did three years at Pittsburgh before becoming the head coach for the University of Tennessee between the years of 1977 and 1992. Prior to retirement, he went back to Pittsburgh for another three years but will always be most associated with The Volunteers.
Majors gave a great talk at this year’s Montgomery Quarterback Club meeting at the end of October, and was able to share a lot of great stories and information about what it’s like to coach an NCAA team.
