Chattanooga-(WDEF) UTC wrapped up their interviews for the athletic director's job on Wednesday by bringing in Lee Fowler.
Fowler is the current director of basketball operations for the Sun Belt Conference, but he has decades of experience as an A.D., including a stint at N.C. State and MTSU.
The former Vandy basketball player believes he has the experience to tackle any athletic budget, even a small one like UTC has to work with. Said Fowler,"When I left Middle Tennessee, I was running a $12-million-budget. That's what it was in 2000, so I'm accustomed to that and have experience with that. Haven't been here (Chattanooga) or through here, except to stop at Nikki's to eat when I come through here. Nikki's hasn't changed thank goodness. If I get this job, my wife says I can only eat there once a month, which is kind of depressing."
