I like Dooley, and I was hoping for him to be able to keep his job. They showed some promise in games like Georgia and South Carolina, but they just couldn't pull them out. I think he might have eventually righted the ship at UT, but if I was the AD, I'd fire him too for the sake of fan interest/support. The loss to Missouri had to be the final straw.
Life is short, ocassionally bend the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
Poor game/clock management can be forgiven if the coach doing it has a winning record. Let's use Les Miles as a prime example. Les can make some boneheaded calls in both playcalling and clock management. But Les has a winning record, and has had year after year ever since CNS left there.
So Les gets a pass because his record speaks for itself.
But Dooley at UcheaT is another story altogether. A coach who makes one boneheaded call after another and shows poor clock management skills, especially a coach with a really bad losing record, isn't going to last long.
It takes more than a name to make a winning coach..
Now Vince and Barbara can go back to pulling for the Dogs. It was an awkward fit for them anyway.
Also, IMO Sal is overrated as a coach.
I'm gonna miss posting this.
