U of M Tigers Football Preparing for Season

MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - The University of Memphis football team has made tremendous strides since Justin Fuente took over as head coach.

In the two years before he arrived the Tigers won just three games. In Fuente's first year they posted a 4-8 record.

Fuente tells LocalMemphis.com what to expect next season.

"You'll start to see a team evolve into the team I envisioned when I took this job," he said, "We've made large strides. I don't think there's any arguing that. I think our kids see it. The administration sees it. And the coaches see it."

From 2009 to 2011 The Tigers went 5 and 31. Fuente almost matched that win total in just one year.

"We did things that hadn't been done in several years, so I think we're in a much better state. But I take it with a grain of salt we had a long road to hold. We'll get there. It takes a quite of bit of work."
