“People who are passionate about a program and truly love it, shouldn’t speak disparaging about the program publicly.”
“We are a bad football team……” Derek Dooley
Dooley certainly got his classiness from his daddy and Nick Saban. After all, Dooley was low hanging fruit off of the Saban coaching tree. A tree that has produced so many great leaders of men. I’m sure we will prevail this upcoming season in typical classy fashion.
I am beginning to think Dooley is right for Tennessee. He just needs much more time to build his team. I would challenge any other coach to do as well as Dooley under the same circumstances. i also admire former UT AD Mike Hamilton and his handling of the Lane Kiffin and Phillip Fulmer debacles. He was firm and resolute and showed great leadership when he dismissed both of these established and winning coaches to hire Dooley. the Vol nation has great things in store for it under the leadership of Dooley and the new AD Dave Hart.
