    Yeah it does matter. As fans, we are not obligated to like our coaches' decisions.

    Do you think that would influence Coach Saban? If yes explain if No .. it doesn't matter. Actually when Lance was rehired plenty were not happy about it correct? Did it change anything at all?

    On a personal Yourworld view sure it does, but in reality it doesn't.

    Re: How would you feel if Coach Saban hired Derek Dooley?

    I don't see why he shouldn't be a consideration. He'd probably help with recruiting, even if he wasn't a good SEC coach, he still was in a lot of kids living rooms and such. Also, Saban doesn't like incompetent people. I was thinking that there might be a couple members of the UT staff that Saban might take a look at.

    No we do not influence CNS's decisions. However, we do not have to sit back and say "Don't matter what I think. Saban does no wrong. He's going to hire a good one."

    How would you feel if Coach Saban hired Derek Dooley?

    As long as it helped Bama I would be all for it.

    Re: How would you feel if Coach Saban hired Derek Dooley?

    I would not at all be surprised if it did happen and we see some changes in coaches being moved around next year. Not saying that it will happen (nor that it should happen) but I would not be surprised. Derek Dooley has been very loyal and has a ton of respect for CNS and remember that CNS and his family are good friends with the Dooley family. I think they may have lake property in North Georgia close to one another. I do wonder if Dooley joining the Bama staff would require more work hours of him than he required of himself at UT?

    Also, remember that Coach Sal Sunseri will be looking for work as well and CNS is a big fan of his and I do not believe any bridges were burned when left Bama for UT

    Well, he's done pretty good work for us the last couple of years...

    I don't know, what do you think, if there is an opening? Are you ok with Dooley on board?

    tough for me to have an informed opinion.....his only body of work that I'm familiar with is at ut. I know that not everyone is cut out to be a head coach, or even a coordinator. So, if he's a fantastic position coach, then by all means....

    If that happened, I would feel he should have tried to get Sunseri back instead. That's whose departure seems to have left a bit of a void, IMO.

    Re: How would you feel if Coach Saban hired Derek Dooley?

    Too be fair..What he walked into at Tennessee was a culture of thuggery leftovers from Kiffin..A lot of those great recruiting classes Kiffin had never made it to campus & the ones that did had really bad attitudes..No matter who the HC was..It was going to take more than 3yrs to fix the mess Kiffin ran away from..I honestly don't think he's a bad HC..He just wasn't ready for the magnitude of problems he took over..A seasoned disciplinarian type HC was what was needed after Kiffin left..
