  • Tennessee to Hire Derek Dooley

    ESPN is reporting now that Tennessee will hire Louisiana Tech HC Derek Dooley to replace Lane Kiffin as HC.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=4829107

    Dooley is the son of former UGA HC & AD Vince Dooley. Dooley was recommended by Texas DC Mike Muschamp after he refused the Vols job this wk.

    Dooley was 17-22 at Louisiana Tech.

    It's not yet a done deal yet.

    As a Vols fan who's payed attention to all the different reports come out over the past two days, I'm not gonna believe anything til he's speaking at the presser.

    Also, no matter what, UT AD Mike Hamilton will probably be fired if this is true. Make room for Fulmah!

          Who knows? Hamilton is most likely fired soon either way. Pretty sure the only coach he could have gotten that would have temporarily got him off of the hot seat was Muschamp.

                  I was never on the Gruden bandwagon.

                    I think he could have recruited the **** out of Tennessee. That's the kind of hire i think you all needed. A big splash to recover from the heartbreak and rioting. This hire seems very anticlimactic.

                      Gruden was a pipe dream, and the odds of him coming to Tennessee was about as good as Cowher or Dungy.

                      I'm actually opening up to the Dooley hiring!

                        Tennessee probably didn't contact Gruden because I doubt he has any interest.

                            I don't care one way or the other if this guy is the hire. Unfortunately right now I'm feeling kind of apathetic towards college football.

                              C'mon big guy! Don't say that!

                              Dooley seems to be the offensive version of Muschamp, and at least he has HC experience. Plus, he was the recruiting coordinator under Saban at LSU when they were pulling in big time classes and winning a NC. To me, he's got the upside that made the Muschamp hire so appealing (and, apparently Muschamp HIGHLY recommended Dooley, who Hamilton and others already had on their list of candidates).
