He was recruited to the University of Tennessee by former Purdue star Emmett Lowery. During his time in Knoxville, Bumper became a 3-year starter, set the Tennessee career rebounding record (1,113 rebounds), an 16.9 rpg rate; was twice named All-SEC and was named to Converse's All-American team and become known to scores of Vols fans as the "Chairman of the Boards."
Later, Tormohlen became an assistant coach for the Hawks, and served as an interim coach at the end of the 1975-76 season; replacing Cotton Fitzsimmons. The next season, the team hired Hubie Brown as their full-time head coach.
