NASHVILLE – Thursday night was a good night for "Mr. Monday Night."
Former Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck, tabbed "Mr. Monday Night" following one of his many memorable prime-time performances during his playing career, has been named a member of the 2023 Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame class.
Bulluck got the news tonight when he was surprised at a Titans ticket holder event at Nissan Stadium featuring Tennessee Sports Hall of Famer Mike Keith and new Titans General Manager Ran Carthon.
"Keith Bulluck was the heart and soul of the Tennessee Titans defense for many years. His leadership on and off the field was instrumental in the Titans success of the early 2000's," said Brad Willis, Executive Director of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. "Keith has made his home in Tennessee for over 20 years, and we're excited to have him as part of our 2023 Hall of Fame Class."
Bulluck, a first-round draft pick of the Titans in the 2000 NFL Draft, played 10 seasons for the Titans, before signing with the Giants for his final season.
Bulluck was named to three Pro Bowls in his career before officially retiring in 2012.
Bulluck joins former Predators Captain Mike Fisher, Memphis Football linebacker Tim Harris, MTSU baseball legend Steve Smith, golfer Loren Roberts, Bristol Motor Speedway Co-Founder Carl R. Moore, ETSU Basketball Coach and Athletics Director Les Robinson, and Lady Vol Track star and Olympic Gold Medalist Tianna Madison as 2023 Inductees.
