Clark, Cheatham, Ruggles and Withers commanded what were designated as divisions that were incorporated into 2 corps commanded by Bragg and Polk. Hardee and Breckinridge commanded what were designated as corps, but were formations of three brigades each which made them effectively divisions.

Edit - The Army of the Tennessee was on the Union side.
