Word coming down now:

Jimmy Hyams ‏@JimmyHyams
Derek Dooley has been fired. Will not coach kentucky game. Press conference today at 2 pm with AD Dave Hart. Dooley will not attend


So who's next? Any chance UT gets Gruden or Charlie Strong? If not them, who?

And he still get a $5 million payout for his shitty coaching

I think Gruden would be a great college coach, but I don't see it happening.

who cares...

they suck.........every coach since 1969 (Neyland) himself has been fired there

Roll Tide!

Gene Chizik should be available soon.
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 7:07:54 AM EST
In just the SEC alone we'll be looking for at least three and possibly four coaches. AR fired its coach this past April, KY a few weeks back, TN today, and quite possibly Auburn (based on their performance this year). Gonna be quite a market for coaches. Let the bidding begin!
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 7:19:38 AM EST
Sorry Tennessee you are not getting Strong and you definitely not getting Gruden. Better start looking at high school coaches. Program is in shambles and just got slapped with more violations.

All I got to say is it's about damn time! Dooley and the Vols suck

Would love to see Gruden in college.

All I know is, UT better get their shit together. They're a disgrace.

their talent level is better now than it was when kiffin started the dumpster fire down there.

if they get a solid coach they could turn it around fairly quickly. i imagine they will. they will pay somebody far out the ass.

@BradenGall: CBS Sports saying Gruden's focus on building staff has been college related. Recruiting, etc. Chances of him in SEC seem to be growing.

Don't see it happening, but it would be a coup if TN could get him.

i agree. i dont know why gruden would go college level when there are any number of NFL teams that would pay him 7-8 million to coach there.

most he would get at UT is probably in the 5 mil range. i think saban makes 5.2?

He has family ties in the area and to UT. I am hoping , but trying to be realistic.

Dunno who Tennessee will get, but I'm hoping like hell that Kentucky will be so fortunate as to land that lying, dirt bag, douche nozzle named Bobby Petrino. Kentucky fans have been waiting an entire lifetime to field a competitive football team and are willing to take Petrino, baggage and all, to get there. But our retarded AD probably won't even offer him the job and instead hire another in a long list of nobodies.

I'd still rank Ravens games above it. But it was against Buffalo, so it's not like it was a competitive game.

Pfft...that's nothing. Chizik will get $7.5M when he's let go in a couple weeks...paid out over 3 years...so he's going to get over $200k/month for not winning a single SEC game this year.

Yeah...he re-did right after the NC game in 2011.

Then apparently said fuck it the last couple years.

Whoever is selected at UT, it better be a big name with some serious skills and ability to recruit. UT has the money to get some high profile people, and they better use it!
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 11:25:33 AM EST
I'm hearing that Jimbo Fisher at Fla St. is looking for a new job.

I say we offer the coach who wins the BCS championship game 10 million to come to Tn next year. Go totally mercenary. Saban is not above a payday obviously.

Fuck everybody, the new AD, Hart i think is his name, better not fuck this up or people are gonna be ready to lynch him.

According to Hart, they have a $1.9 mil reserve, compared to some SEC teams having $50-100. He did say money would not be what prevents anyone from being hired, though. Evidently, the Haslam's and several other huge booster have committed to getting a big name hire.

Like Saban-esque money.
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 12:24:37 PM EST
Look! Suddenly UT Athletics has an extra $6 mil for the next 3 years to play with. What is supposedly in the works to kick in in roughly 3 years? SEC Network and it's revenue stream. Funny how these things work out...
