The University of Tennessee has found a football coach, but they had to go all the way to Louisiana Tech to get him. Derek Dooley, who accumulated a 17-20 record in two seasons in the WAC. ESPN and a few other people are reporting that Dooley’s hiring is about a done deal.
And now brace yourself for some INSTANT ANALYSIS. Weak hire. It’s amazing that NOBODY wanted this job. I thought that Southern Cal was settling just to get Lane Kiffin, but this was almost sad. It’s an SEC school, a 100,000-plus capacity stadium, tradition, strong booster base, and the Vols are stuck with what seemed like their 22nd choice.
