The University of Tennessee dedicated two areas in honor of former Volunteer athletics director and head football coach, Doug Dickey. The Doug Dickey Hall of Fame Plaza, adjacent to the new residence hall being built on Lake Loudoun Boulevard, and the Doug Dickey Hall of Champions, located in the north hallway of the Neyland-Thompson Center.
Upon completion of the new residence hall, this area will serve as the main entrance to the athletic facilities for all Tennessee student-athletes. The Hall of Fame Plaza will recognize all members of the Tennessee Athletics Hall of Fame, including all current inductees to the Lady Vol Hall of Fame as well as future classes for the combined hall.
The Hall of Champions will recognize the tradition of competitive excellence for all Tennessee sports and will detail NCAA and SEC championship teams, Olympians, All-Americans and championship moments.
