Default UT fires head coach Derek Dooley

I dont know if this has already been posted but if so mods please remove. Sources saying that it's official. Any body else heard this? I know it's no surprise but I just thought they would wait until after the season.

ESPN is reporting that Dooley has been fired. We need to hire their OL coach.

They won't let him coach the last game against Kentucky?

Ouch, that's a bit harsh isn't it? At least let him finish out the season.

The hate being spewed by ut fans is ridiculous and flat out embarrassing..

1. dooley took a job that everyone was turning down.
2.he cleaned that program up. the inmates were in charge.
3.he was in a no win situation and handled eveything with class.

good luck and a thank you would be appropriate. this mindset is what got ut in trouble in the first place. they deserve all the bad luck possible for their behavior. and to not let him coach another game is classless on ut admin.

I think they should hire Chad Morris, today. Dabo can handle the offensive gameplan.

He did take a chance when many others decline. You got to respect him for that.

He came close to success, just couldn't get over the hump.

Typical outcome following a successful coach
Dooley was in over his head
Low class not letting him coach the last game unless he told admin to stuff it

All he needed was a defense. His offense was putting up some numbers.

There wasn't much Dooley could have done the program was in shambles from the Kiffin year, yet he came in anyway and cleaned up the mess. Dooley is a good guy he will find a job elsewhere in a smaller BCS school or he may even up at UK. Shame he couldn't at least finish the season out.

Tennessee lost 14 of their last 15 SEC games.

Under Dooley, Tennessee was 0-15 against top-25 programs.

They lost to Missouri at home.

At this point, it is believe Dooley already was in lame duck status and his chance to coach out the rest of the regular season depended on him beating Vanderbilt.

Instead of beating Vanderbilt, Tennessee got destroyed by their instate rival and are staring at going winless in the SEC if they do not beat UK.

The AD probably would have a riot on his hands if he would have kept Dooley on for this last game.

Let the last home game of the season be about the Volunteers' Senior class (which may go down as one of the worst in Tennessee history, but it is what it already is) and not about the anger toward Dooley.

Dooley was the wrong man for the situation. Tennessee does not care as much about character and orange pants as it does about winning. There are many questionable decisions Dooley made over his tenure that a better coach would likely decide differently. Even just looking at the last two games, you can point to going for it on fourth down in the third quarter from the shadow of their own endzone, or the game previous to that when, with 40 seconds left in regulation and three timeouts, Dooley decides to take a knee and take the game to overtime rather than attempting to move the team into field goal range.


Tennessee will fire Dooley now and Tennessee will beat UK next week because UK is a terrible, terrible team.

Tennessee will then throw as much money as possible at Gruden. They have a good chance of getting him if the rumors of him studying Tenn game film and visiting Knoxville recently are true. But if they don't get him, they will have to bring in a rockstar coach of the Volunteer fans will not give the next guy any slack to get his bearing in the SEC.

They are hankering for a homerun hire who will be successful right off the bat and whose name alone will make all the top recruits in the nation come a'runnin.

Tennessee is not a bad job.

Dooley was definitely gone so it makes sense they would give someone else a chance to beat UK.

Their fans have unreasonable expectations and will be dissappointed with anyone besides Gruden (and not Jay Gruden).
