Fuente building off Memphis' 10-win season, Top 25 ranking
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The Memphis Tigers and coach Justin Fuente have done their best to capitalize on their best season in decades with his fourth signing class.
The Tigers are coming off a 10-3 season, their double-digit win season since 1983, that also earned them a No. 25 ranking in The Associated Press' final poll. They earned a share of the American Athletic Conference title - their first since 1971 - and won the Miami Beach Bowl.
"I think it gives a tangible reference point for those kids," Fuente said Wednesday of the Tigers' success. "It's no longer just a dream or a vision. It's something that they are able to see. The trophies and ability to see the games on television validates the hard work that the kids before them have put in. I think those played big roles. Slowly we are building a brand and reputation."MORE
