    How would you feel if Coach Saban hired Derek Dooley?

    He has worked as a WR, RB, TE coach & recruiting co for Coach Saban.
    He also coached special teams.

    I think if Coach Saban thinks he helps our team, welcome aboard.

    What do you think? Is it possible?

    Most things are possible. This being one of them. However, I would expect him to be able to take a lower level coaching job and try to work back into a decent job. If he was dealt a better hand, he might have done better; he knew UT was going to be trouble when he took the job, though.

    If Saban thinks he could help the program, I would trust his judgement.

    He stayed on a Saban staff what, seven years? The guy obviously is a good coordinator or position coach. Might not be cut out to be a HC. A lot of them are like this. But if Saban hires him then I'm good with it.

    It's when Saban hires me is when y'all should start to worry. You know then we're at the bottom of the barrel.

    You are pretty smart BB!
    he was with Coach for a long time & moved with him is the reason I asked. Seems to be a smart move to me.

    Yes. Go back to a Sun Belt school or maybe C-USA. Heck, he may want to experience the MACtion next season.

    Ok thanks, I guess it's a thing he & his family has to decide but I would be happy to see him here.

    As long as he wears normal pants and Saban thinks it is a good idea, I'm ok with it.

    Derek Dooley did nothing to suggest he was who the Vols should hire. He may be a good assistant but head coach is out.

    Doesn't really matter does it? lol CNS gets paid to do what he does and we get to sit back and enjoy.

    Yes, I agree but I really respect your opinion. Does he fit at the Capstone?
