    Re: Dooley is Out At UT - not so fast, my friend - He's Out

    Done! Oh well... I hate it that he has to go. They may not want to hear this but this job (UT head coach) has gotten more and more unattractive... even if Gruden was looking for a good college team to coach, no way he would want to come here and try to raise this sunken ship.

    Do you really think that Coach Smart would take a job where he would be in direct competition with Coach Saban every year recruiting and on the field, especially with no HC experience? I don't and I don't think he would be wise to do so...
    That's the paradox of success. The moment you stop to enjoy it, you are in trouble. You have to keep moving forward. It's not what you have done that's important. It's where you are going.

    Well, this should not come as a surprise for Dooley, although I hate to see him go because he is the cleanest coach the've had up there for several years. Whoever takes over will have a tremendous task to completely rebuild that program. Finding the right guy will be tough because things are very, very broken up there. Fulmer really screwed things up for them, then Kiffin started the fire that still hasn't been quenched.

    I'm very glad they have fired him. Now I can go back to hating the very core of the viles' existance. Coach Dooley has too much class and character than to be stuck in Knoxville. With his law degree, I would think he would fit well at any university as an NCAA compliance officer. I hope they do NOT hire Coach Smart because I love to hate Tennessee.
    The best thing to ever come out of Tennessee...I-65 heading south.

    This is a watershed hire for Tennessee. They are going to try and hire an experienced head coach. They have to. Their three chief rivals are all winning at a high level. They can't afford to let another young, inexperienced coach "grow into" the job.

    Sal Sunseri's reputation was a gift from Saban. He coached several of the best linebackers in recent memory. If you've been following Tennessee this season, you know that guy hasn't exactly looked like Vince Lombardi.


    I hope that Tennessee does hire Gruden. He won the Super Bowl with Dungy's team. Besides that one season, he had very little success in the NFL. He has no experience recruiting. If you lived in Tennessee like I do, you'd know that their fans want Peyton Manning to be the next head coach. To those of you keeping score, Manning has never coached a football team at any level and he is still a choke artist of the highest order.

    In addition, I am thoroughly amused by how many of us just hate to see Dooley go. I remember how many Vol fans told me about what a mistake it was getting rid of Mike Shula. "That guy is a real class act. He was turning it around there; you should have given him more time."
