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

    I would be ok with having Dooley as an assistant. It worked out when Dooley coached under CNS at LSUWHO. I think he's a pretty good assistant. I think he would do really well recruiting. He had to clean up Lame Kitten's mess at Tennessee. I can't hold him entirely responsible for what happened at Tennessee considering what he walked into.

    If he's good enough for CNS, he's good enough for me.

    I would feel better if he was put in an off-the-field position, like 'assistant director' of football operations or something like that.

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

    I have no problem with him or Sunseri. Sunseri left for a promotion (even though it was Tenn...) so i'ts hard to blame him. I'd expect Dooley would be short term though as within a year or two I figure he'd be back to being a HC somewhere. In that short term though they both might potentially help with some UT recruits we may have interest in. (I've not looked a a list, just saying potentially) Not that we'd hire anyone from the Barn, but there may be a recruit or two there looking to rethink things if Chizik gets canned.

    I have no problem at all with either Dooley or Sunseri returning to Alabama.

    I also have no problem with it if their Bama salaries are set such that UT is paying the bulk of their salary while they coach for Bama.

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

    Only if we had a vacancy.

    Senseri & Dooley are both good 'position coaches'. We could do worse.
    In our distant past, we have done worse...
    If Coach Saban wants one or both of these guys, and we have an opening... Yes.
    Recent history... Coach Saban re-hired Lance after his ill-fated stint at Tennessee.
    Lance filled a need, and Coach Saban was familiar with him and his abilities...
    Same With Sal & Derek.

    He rehired Lance Thompson. After that, I question no more hires...

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

    I'd be happy for him to be on our staff. He's a good coach that inherited a Kiffin cluster and, in my opinion, didn't get enough time to fix it.

    Is he smart enough to run the ball on first and goal? If so, I'd happily take him as OC.

    He walked into a tough situation, but he did himself no favors. The Vols have progressively gotten worse every single year. And he has no excuse to be as bad as they've been. They've got a LOT of NFL talent on their roster, top 5 in the SEC for sure.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    This is the reason why I knew Vinnie wouldn't go with his dad. Wish he could come back too. He probably made as much as DC's at smaller schools.
