He is amazing.

Maybe so. These guys just seem to make those kinds of decisions a lot. Team chemistry and all that. So long as they're winning, I won't bitch about it too much.

Default Re: UT fires head coach Derek Dooley

Of all the other Head Coaches in the SEC, Dooley was a guy I really
admired for his coaching style and his down to earth approach to the
game and disipline. Unfortunately, it wasn't going to get him a lot of points
without the Ws in Tennessee. He was a good man, and I really think a
good Old School coach, but unfortunately too, those kinds of coaches don't
last long with a program that is looking for getting back to it's nationally
recognized status. Hate that it didn't work out for him and wish him all
the luck in the world with his future as a coach.

Default Re: UT fires head coach Derek Dooley

Here is how I see it playing out.

Start with Gruden.

Move on to Stoops.

Then move on to Jim Mora Jr./Mike Gundy/Gary Patterson

Then to Charlie Strong/Al Golden/James Franklin/Jimbo Fisher

Hopefully we don't fall below that.

If he could have just closed out that Florida game (we were up 7 with the ball in Florida territory with 3 min left in 3rd Qtr) then his tenure could have been very different.

Everything was riding on that game...and he let the opportunity slip away.

Very true. All things being equal, he could have been the difference against LSU, and then who knows how different things would have been against Florida, though that was just one of those disaster games.
Not to go too far off topic, but quite a few people on this board were calling for us to go after him. I'd read that it was debatable who expressed a lack of interest first (us or him) but the bottom line is there was a huge miss on that evaluation by the staff.

I knew from the day they hired him it wouldn't work out. He seemed like a good guy though, guess a little too good.

Boy, ya'll sure are thinking only a big name coach.. it'll sting when it's none of those.

Stoops? zero chance. Mora is meh, same for Gundy. Patterson would be the best hire, but I wanna see him vs SEC teams first.

Strong will not goto UT, Golden is a meh coach, Franklin would be an interesting hire, SEC East to SEC East. Great recruiter though. Doubt Jimbo leaves.

Regardless, UT may lose many talented guys to graduation/leavign early.. so whoever gets hired better not be expected to win anytime soon haha.

Personally I hope it is Gruden.. Recruits may want to play for him because of his name, but I just don't seem him succeeding in the SEC.

Our boosters are ready to back up the dump truck of cash for a big name coach.

Gruden would win at TN, but i don't want to start that argument with you again.

I don't believe Stoops would leave either so we agree there.

Mora and Gundy aren't Meh IMO, they are both great young coaches. I don't forsee either of them coming to TN though...could be wrong I guess.

Strong will not go to UT? Why wouldn't he? Huge upgrade for him, he is an SEC coach by nature and TN is one of the top 6 jobs in the SEC.

Agree Golden and Jimbo are Meh, and Franklin would be interesting. Just don't think our fanbase could wrap their heads around an ex Vandy coach as our coach.

Even though I think he could do well at TN.

By the way....You folks who think Teeneresee cant go out and get any coach they want because of money....??..You are out of your mind....The Vols will get what they want this time....Coach Cut or Petrino is what I think...But you can bet, now that Teeneersea has put some space and time between themselves and the Kiffen abortion they are ready to go...
I still think Dooley was kind of a buffer like when we hire King Dixon and Sparky Woods....Scape goats till time heals the wounds so to speak..

If Dooley is Sparky, then God help TN because that means they're due for a Fat Brad.

...Nah....they really like DatzBow....I ask them why they like him so and I pretty much get the same answer from all of them.....DatzBow is a great recruiter and he is growing into the position.......They are are putting a lot in their basket with Morris and Vernables....I think Morris is a good OC but we all see when a GOOD defense plays them they have trouble...Vern is not a good coach...Just because he coached at OU they think he can get it done....Well he didnt at OU and he aint going to in klempzun...

Kind of weird that Tubberville isnt being mentioned more....I would think Coach Cut and Petrino are on top of the list but Tubbz would be a strong hire also..

Gruden is interesting because he hasn't taken his name out of the pot yet.

He could be angling for more tv money or he could be really interested in the Tenn job.

I also have to wonder though if he is waiting to see how the Carolina Panthers season plays out (or any of the other jobs that are sure to come open in the NFL) maybe he has the NFL itch again (but not the NFL itch that is attained from camp followers).
