Justin Hunter grew up in Virginia, but the state of Tennessee has felt like home as he travels around the state.

He became an All-SEC wide receiver in Tennessee before spending his first three NFL seasons with the Titans, who selected him in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. After retiring, he moved further west across the state to Memphis, where his wife is from.

So it seemed natural that his move into coaching would find his way to the Tigers. Hunter will be working with the Receivers as a research assistant throughout the 2023 season, and for that he has several unexpected connections to thank.
