    Also, IMO Sal is overrated as a coach.
    All pretty much true. He was also informed that he was not in line for DC if Smart left...

    said exactly the same to my wife. Sitting on a tie and going to overtime when you have those receivers, a QB that can get them the ball, two timeouts and only need ~30 yards to kick a field goal?

    Dave Hart says that a decision has not been made yet

    http://espn.go.com/college-football/...-made-decision


    "We talked very frankly about it," Dooley said. "He told me he had not made a decision, if we go 6-6, despite what all the reports are. Either the sources are wrong or Dave wasn't being forthright with me, and I have no reason to think Dave's not being forthright with me. He's an honest man. He's always been honest with me. I've appreciated how he's handled everything about this."

    Looks like just another rumor, nothing more.

    I sure hope he stays.

    Compare today's climate. Would Vince Dooley have made it to year 8 with the record below? He finished his career 201-77-10 and 104-42 and he is considered
    one of the greats? His SEC record was 60%? Minus his Herchel Walker years, Vince's teams would lose 4 on average every year. No wonder their Auburn's biggest out of state rival.....they have something in common.....average! Plus Dye played at Gowga and Dooley at Auwbun.

    So even if Derek could match his father, he would still get canned!

    196-

    64 7-3-1
    65 6-4
    66 10-1
    67 7-4
    68 8-1-2
    69 5-5-1
    70 5-5


    Would never have reached the 71 season today.

    71 11-1
    72 7-4-1
    73 7-4

    Don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet, but I think Sal has a guaranteed 3 year contract. I think when Dooley came on board, he had to keep a couple of the coaches (lance Thompson). Not sure if that means UT will have to buy out the contract or if the new coaches will have to keep him on board.

    So, are they just going to leave DD twisting in the wind, or what? There really is no reason to keep delaying the inevitable. I guess they are waiting to see if he can get his signature win this Saturday against Vanderbilt. If the powers that be are still having their doubts, they need to think about it this way. Thanks to tennessee, Missouri's bowl hopes are alive and well. Missouri's season was over and done until last Saturday. That should tell them all they need to know.

    After getting drubbed last night 41-18 by Vandy, per Josh Ward:

    Tennessee has fired Derek Dooley, per @JimmyHyams. UT AD Dave Hart will hold a press conference without Dooley at 2 ET. Derek Dooley will not coach the Kentucky game. He finishes with a 15-21 record at Tennessee, 4-19 in the SEC.

    After that loss I'm just amazed he wasn't filmed getting fired on the way off the field.

    Re: Since my last Thread was "dupe"

    I look for Tennessee to interview Kirby Smart. If offered, I think he would take it. Remember the Dave Hart/Bama connection. He's one of the few candidates without HC experience I believe a school on whom a big-time program would take chance.

    Right now, I'd also say there's more of a chance of Derek Dooley coming to Tuscaloosa than Sal Sunseri returning, probably as a recruiting coordinator or assistant director of football operations, etc. A previous post was correct, Sal was able to negotiate a guarantee for 3 yrs.
