    Anyway link says they will start the search thought they had Gruden on standby
    With Gruden making 4.3 million per year for his Monday Night Football gig, think they might want to look elsewhere.

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

    Gruden has a double-wide on his aheep farm in Maryville. Plus his wife was a cheerleader there. Plus, he was, like, a GA there. It's all so obvious.

    The pressure on UT cannot be overstated. Their top 3 rivals - Bama, Florida, Georgia - are about to be ranked numbers 2, 3, and 4 in the country this week.

    Re: Dooley is Out At UT (per VolQuest.com)

    Found this nugget, over at Fox Sports:

    Tennessee faces some financial issues as it chooses its new coach. The university's athletic department posted a $3.98 million budget deficit for the 2011-12 fiscal year in part because of buyouts it was paying to Fulmer, former athletic director Mike Hamilton, former men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl and former baseball coach Todd Raleigh.
    Good luck paying $$$$$ to get a real coach. Couple that with the 2-year extension, added to their probation................couldn't happen to a better bunch of rats. (API being lower than rats.)
    "He's crazy, Doc. He won't fly with me. I take good care of him, but he won't. He's crazy, alright."
    "There, that's proof, isn't it?. They all say I'm crazy."
    "They're crazy."
    "Then why don't you ground them?"
    "Why don't they ask?"
    "Because they're crazy, that's why."
    "Of course they're crazy. I just told you that. You can't let crazy people decide if you are crazy or not, can you?"

    Their athletic department just completed a restructure back in the summer. Looks like money is tight. http://www.utsports.com/genrel/041612aad.html

    Re: Dooley is Out At UT

    There is a huge difference in being an assistant coach and a head coach. As an assistant, it is easy to believe you have all the answers,, but the game is completely different when you are on top and having to make the tough calls. Dooley will land on his feet somewhere as an assistant, but he simply was not ready for taking on this position.

    I think he will be a head coach somewhere. I think he is a good head coach. He has been real close to winning 3-5 more games this year. One possession games where one play makes a difference. He may want to spend more time in a smaller school to learn and develop his coaching style. He may end up taking a Louisville if Strong gets offered a better job.

    Perhaps he might get another gig as HC at a smaller school, but there is a greater chance that he ends up as an assistant somewhere, even in the NFL.

    They came within a too-many-players-on-the-field penalty of beating the who's LAST year. I hope they hire Bobby Petrino.

    You say this like it is a common thing for fans to want Peyton Manning as a coach in Knoxville. Anyone that has a clue about football knows that would be a horrendous decision if Manning was looking for a job. Like you say he has never coached at any level. You also hear the name George Quarles thrown around by some idiots. http://www.hsfdatabase.com/tn_maryvillefaf.htm - if you are wondering who he is. He is one of the best high school coaches around.

    Manning or Quarles could possibly make good coaches at the college level but you don't get your first college job as a head coach in the SEC.

    Best hire that would probably jump for UT, Dan Mullen. HC experience, knows the SEC and UT is a step up.
