Dooley: Help Wanted. No Experience Required.


Like Bill King said on Twitter: Knoxville is a dumpster fire. I say that Derek Dooley is like a chicken bone stuck in our throat. Can’t swallow it but can’t cough it up either.

Dooley already reeling from multiple public relations disasters such as losing recruits, losing to Kentucky, that stupid ass orange ceramic dog, the mishandling of the release of wide receiver DeAnthony Arnett and getting bitch slapped daily by Vandy Coach James “Milk Dud” Franklin (and his proxy Clay Travis), Tennessee football  resembles the floor of a adult video peepshow: A wet sloppy mess. Check this:

Ex-Tennessee recruit LB Khalid Henderson said he thought he was a “Vol for Life” until hearing from Dooley.

“Coach Dooley said there is a ‘possibility’ you might not be coming to Tennessee,” Henderson told the AJC. “He said you have two options: ‘You can stay committed to us, wait it out and see what other players do. Or you can de-commit and try to get some attention from other schools but that doesn’t mean you can’t come to Tennessee’ or whatever. He was very iffy about everything. He wouldn’t say anything concrete. He kept on using that word ‘possibility.’”

“I thought it was a bunch of crap. I guess if Tennessee is out there looking for other linebackers, then I can go find another place to go. Tennessee is where I wanted to go, and that’s where I’ve been loyal to ever since June. But it is what it is.”

This soap opera is becoming very tiring. Now Dooley is losing more assistant coaches.  I would assume he has a backup plan.  One name that is the hot rumor is former Miami head coach Randy Shannon.  Awesome, Shannon and Dooley will be  quite the dynamic duo. Shannon Link

Rest assured that Coach Dooley had contingency plans in place and he  was not surprised with Wilcox and Sirmon (a pair of dudes) bailing on this sinking ship. Two smug, A-list clowns struting towards the west coast. He is always that on top of things. The one thing that Dooley knows is that his staff is always ready to leave his underachieving ass.  With that in mind Dooley keeps a short list of unemployed coaches in his Blackberry.  FYI, I heard that some of the Bowden boys are still available……

Interestingly enough this  was a lateral move  for Wilcox and Sirmon. Frankly, Wilcox just flat needed to GTFO he had become a distraction to the program.

A) He ain’t no John Chavis for sure.
2) Wilcox was job shopping for weeks.
C) Wilcox was rumored to be hired away to at least 3 other schools.

I say good fucking riddance. Wilcox’s bullshit and his pussified “bend but don’t break” effeminate defensive scheme was just fucking awful. With this quitter gone Dooley can continue his pursuit of mediocrity without fear.

What a disaster this program has become.  Bring back Fulmer.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
