Condredge Holloway

Assistant AD - Student-Athlete Relations and Lettermen

  • Condredge Holloway is in his 17th year on the Tennessee staff and continues to serve as a vital link between the current Vols football staff and its storied history.
  • UT's Assistant Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Relations and Letterman also is one of the most celebrated players in school history.
  • In 2011, Holloway's amazing career was the subject of an ESPN documentary, "The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway Story," produced by Kenny Chesney. It recounted the life and playing days of the SEC's first African-American starting quarterback.
  • Holloway primarily serves as the department's liaison with the Lettermen's Club, assisting with reunions and other projects. Holloway also is the point person for numerous issues surrounding the conduct of a major college football program. Holloway has taken great pride in helping former Vols find their niche in the business world by assisting them with contacts and employment opportunities following graduation.
  • Holloway remains associated in the minds of Tennessee fans with the razzle-dazzle offense he quarterbacked during his undergraduate days of the 1970s.
  • Nicknamed "The Artful Dodger," Holloway packed excitement into every play, whether it developed into a pass or a scramble.
  • In his three seasons (1972-74) as a starter, Holloway directed the Vols to the 1972 Astro-Bluebonnet, 1973 Gator and 1974 Liberty bowls and an overall record of 25-9-2. He ended his career with the best interception-to-attempt ratio in Tennessee history, throwing just 12 interceptions in 407 collegiate attempts.
  • In addition to being the first black quarterback at Tennessee and in the Southeastern Conference, Holloway also was the first black baseball player in UT history.
  • The outstanding prospect had been selected out of high school by the Montreal Expos with their first overall pick. Holloway opted instead for a two-sport collegiate career and went on to excel on the diamond. He garnered All-SEC and All-America honors as a shortstop in 1975 and finished with a .353 career batting average.
  • Holloway -- still the owner of UT's longest hitting streak at 27 games -- was selected to Tennessee's All-Century Baseball Team, making him the only UT student-athlete named to all-century squads in both baseball and football.
  • Holloway left Knoxville and played 13 seasons in the Canadian Football League, compiling impressive numbers for the Ottawa Rough Riders (1975-80), Toronto Argonauts (1981-86) and British Columbia Lions (1987). He threw for more than 25,000 yards and rushed for another 3,167 while scoring 155 touchdowns. He was league MVP in 1982.
  • After his professional playing days ended, Holloway returned to UT and earned his degree.
  • In addition to his induction in Alabama Sports Hall of Fame, Holloway is a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame and the Tennessee Baseball Hall of Fame, among others.
  • Holloway is married to the former Courtney Haralson of Meigs County and is the father of Jasmine and Condredge III.
