some yahoos on social media are now saying Holly Warlick is on the hot seat..."Derek Dooley in a pantsuit." UNBELIEVABLE!!!
To top it off, Butch Jones is going to take the Marquette basketball job tonight and Vols will re-hire Derek Dooley to stop paying buyout...
Is Holly Warlick just Derek Dooley in a pant suit ? . . . .bad coach
Yes, Leonard Little (just referred to Derek Dooley as "...that other coach before Butch Jones.". It was awesom…
UK's last two SEC wins are came against Derek Dooley and Houston Nutt.
Wait? No suspensions or discipline announced yet for arrested players? I totally woulda been on top of this sooner. Sincerely, Derek Dooley
I probably argued there was no way Derek Dooley wasn't going to win the East with all that offensive talent.
that's what Derek Dooley Way is for!!
remember when you hired Derek Dooley? LOL
Chillin' with Joel Osteen, the only man with better hair than Derek Dooley...
Derek Dooley still gets a check from Tennessee for $105,000 EVERY SINGLE MONTH.
I have an autographed Derek Dooley UT hat that I wear when I want to feel completely useless
Yes. They're sitting together. Derek Dooley is with them too. Deion Sanders is there too, but not sitting with them.
Just remembered that Derek Dooley said he wasn't excited about the Today Show coming to UT... Ugh, I hate him even more now.
Ladies are flocking around Tony Romo & not Derek Dooley during the hoops game. Weird.
I remember all the Tennessee fans saying that with Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley. That's all UT is, TALK. Alabama actually wins
Looking at Tennessee recruiting now, it's quite possible Derek Dooley didn't realize Nashville was in the United States.
Yes and Derek Dooley was pretty bad also! ;)
Congratulations to the University of Tennessee for an outstanding 2014 football recruiting class---bested only by Alabama, LSU and Florida State. People forget that Tennessee averaged in the top ten in recruiting from 1980---2009 under Johnny Majors and Phillip Fulmer. I won't even count Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley as the last four years have been very trying on the Vol nation. Alabama will always keep the standard high as long as Nick Saban is there---Just hope Lane Kiffin doesn't destroy that program.
"I'm the only guy that has any sense of reality in this whole organization." -Derek Dooley 2011
I enjoyed that so much more thinking the Derek was in reference to Dooley.
lol apparently ur moronic vandy troll self never saw a Derek Dooley recruiting class, looked like urs this yr for 3 yrs
Mike Hamilton hired lame kiffin derek dooley and cuonzo martin. However an arguement can be made that jimmy cheek has actually been worse
Martin is the Derek Dooley of basketball coaches. 3 years of disappointment is enough.
Do they get a trophy for this one? Butch Jones and Gus Malzahn are better coaches than Derek Dooley and Gene Chizik.
In 2012, Derek Dooley said Alabama "doesn't recruit, it drafts. And it has the first 25 picks." For proof, see: NSD 2014.
I sense that John Fox spent a lot of the last 2 weeks picking the brain of Derek Dooley.
Early indications from Titans GM Ruston Webster are that the team's Top 3 candidates to fill the coaching vacancy are: Lane Kiffin, Derek Dooley & Phillip Fulmer.
lol I'd hope so. Y'all are talkin about a Lane Kiffin/ Derek Dooley team right now. recruiting class
'member when Derek Dooley was a preferred choice over David Cutcliffe.Doolish!
Great to see the whole Young Irish Film Makers archive going online! Here's a little seen gem for your Friday night viewing. Suckers is a comedy horror directed by John Doran and Chris Slack from a script by John Morton. It's basically The Breakfast Club with vampires, featuring a vintage YIFM cast where the students are played by John Doran, Peter McGann, Liadain Kaminska, Stephen Colfer, Peter O'Connor, Amy Hughes and Kevin Mooney and the staff room consists of David Thompson, Derek Dooley, Paul Young, Darragh Byrne, John Morton, *** McGrath, Tony Murray, Eddie Brennan and Simone Kelly. And it's got an R.S.A.G soundtrack! For more old YIFM gems, check out:
Derek Dooley, former coach of Tennessee/now Cowboys WR coach, participated in No Shave November
It pains me to say this but Derek Dooley>>Jim Schwartz.
For all this talk of James Franklin being a great coach, don't forget that he lost to a Derek Dooley coached football team.
Athlon named Derek Dooley the worse hire of all time in college football! So congrats to Hammy and Cheek
Derek Dooley tops the list of worst football coaches. Bet he's still laughing, seeing how he left UT with a $5million parting gift.
"“Website puts Derek Dooley atop 'worst coach' list who would've thought?

Derek Dooley was the greatest President of all time
Derek Dooley came in at for the first time in his life lmao
Derek Dooley: [Dez Bryant's] had some challenges the last few weeks, but he's handled them like a pro. I expect him to have a great finish."
Derek Dooley on criticism Dez Bryant received for his sideline actions in Detroit: "I think that was harder on him than most people realize"
Derek Dooley: "When you don't know Dez and you don't hear the words that are coming out of his mouth, his animation is really aggressive."
Cowboys WR coach Derek Dooley on Dez Bryant: "He's got an incredible passion about him and I think sometimes that passion is misunderstood."
WR coach Derek Dooley: "Our expectations [of Dez Bryant] are higher than anybody else we can coach. There's a lot more we expect out of him"
you have one and we have one. We also had Derek Dooley and you got the coward. Congrats.
11/12/13 is Derek Dooley Day. That's how many players he played on defense, depending on who he wanted to lose to.
Any other UT football fans getting at least some satisfaction from seeing the Cowboys struggle while employing Monte Kiffin and Derek Dooley. Only thing that would've been nicer would be if Jerry Jones had hired Mike Hamilton too.
I watch a lot of football and seem to never see position coaches on TV but Derek Dooley is all over my TV.
Is that where Derek Dooley ended up?
We just saw Derek Dooley on the cowgirls sideline.lol perfect fit
So if any UT fans are watching Sunday Night Football pay attention and you might see our old football coach Derek Dooley on the sideline on the Cowboys coaching staff. He just caught me totally off guard.
did anyone else notice Derek Dooley as the WR coach talking to a player on the Cowboys sideline?
And found out the scrub at wr coach is Derek Dooley ur dad is sorry so r u.bring in Michael Irvin as wr coach but we get what we pay for!!!
Why is it that I smile every time I see Dez Bryant giving Derek Dooley the business on the sideline? Dooley has that same here-we-go-again look I used to have when I had to go see him in his office.
"Why did the cowboys hire Derek Dooley?" - Savannah "The same reason Tennessee did. They both suck and apparently like losing" - Gordon
Is that Derek Dooley on the Cowboys sideline? Well there's you problem, Dallas. Dooley set the Tennessee Vols Program back five years.
I will admit that the only tiny little bit of respect that I have for the Dallas Cowboys lies solely with Mr. Derek Dooley.
I just saw Derek Dooley coaching on the Cowboys' sideline? Former coach at LSU and LATech - cant believe he went over to the dark side LOL!
Derek Dooley is on the coaching staff for Dallas, that explains it all
My worst nightmare... Romo talking to Derek Dooley before he goes out on the field.
Derek Dooley is the wide receiver coach for the Cowboys. Is it just a coincidence that they haven't had a completion to the wide receivers and it is halftime?
Derek Dooley gets a lifeless look in his eyes every time Dez Bryant speaks. Sort of like the look he used to get every time Tyler Bray was on the field.
Wait! Was that Derek Dooley who was getting "coached up" by Dez Bryant on the sidelines?
Derek Dooley went from getting harassed by UT fans to getting harrased by Dez Bryant. What a joke!!
Even though Derek Dooley is a wide receiver coach. I still believe he is the reason the Cowboys are losing.
And Dez Bryant is on the sideline accosting Derek Dooley. LOL @ Dallas.
Does anyone else see the irony in Derek Dooley and Monte Kiffin coaching for the same team?
Weird that Derek Dooley and Monte Kiffin are on the same NFL team
As this college football season becomes more clear, here's what we know: Is Alabama very good? Why yes we are! Sorry to my UT friends, Butch Jones just put another brick in the wall. Just as a point of reference, Derek Dooley went 6-6 and took his team to a bowl game his first year. This team has a long way to go.
Anyone have extra sand I could use to bury my head in after losing to the Jags? Did the Titans hire Derek Dooley from the Cowboys without us knowing about it?
History of Coaching changes in my lifetime at UT: Bill Battle becomes youngest head coach in nation in '70 after Doug Dickey pulls a "Kiffin" in '69, Battle goes 53-17-2, (59-22-2 overall) and has a 6-5 season and has a moving van sent to his house by fans after a 6-5 season, and the HOT coach, fresh off a National Championship at Pitt Johnny Majors is hired in '77. Johnny is fired in '91 off a 9-3 season, and before then 11-1, 9-2-2, 9-3, 9-3 record because while in the hospital because the powers that be like the style of play of replacement Phil Fulmer at the helm. Fulmer is fired after the '08 season after a 5-7 record, and NO top 25 recruiting class. Lane Kiffin is hired bringing Tn. it's last winning season to date (then pulls a "Dickey"), then Derek Dooley is brought in as head coach, Tennessee's 5-7th choice, and fired before his contract is fulfilled costing 5 million plus cost of new coaching staff of Butch Jones (around 6 mill) a coach from C. Mich, and Cinn (that our fired coach beat by ...
Well i think its time to put tenn football team where thire thay I think that's all there is to it. another Derek Dooley era coming right up.tenn ***
I think the Gators are looking for a coach. I think Derek Dooley might be looking for work.
I stand behind coach Butch Jones because he is working with what Derek dooley left him . It will take a while to rebuid this program but i believe that we have got the right coach for the job.
Messege to all Vol fans and Bama haters.for a few hours tonight let us all become LSU Tiger fans.the scenerio we are hoping for is an Alabama loss.fans question Nikki Satan...Nikki takes the Texas job and all the Alabama fans switch to Texas fans then they all move to Texas to be with their leader Nikki Satan! Then an added bonus Derek Dooley becomes the new head coach at Alabama with a lifetime contract and billion dollar buyout. ROLL TIGERS!
I hope Barbara Dooley's proud of her son. Even though Barbara said, "my baby inherited a mess". I hope she's proud of the absolute debacle that her little Derek has left the Tennessee football program in. I hate the very ground that Derek Dooley walks on!
And i thought Derek Dooley was bad tennesee and Florida now have the absolute worst coaches in the SEC it can't be the players they have talent just no brains to guide the talent
The ghost of Derek Dooley is still haunting Tennessee.
Every single Tennessee football games i went to from 1997 to 2009 we won. Every single game I went to with Derek Dooley besides one (Montana) we lost. . Butch cant win with a bunch of Dooley's
Maybe one day we will exorcise the ghost of Derek Dooley but today is not that day.
I'd love to be Derek Dooley for a half hour.
Watching Romeo & Juliet and wishing Derek Dooley was sitting here beside me to interpret what they are saying. :)
We are back from SEMA and trying to recover after 3 solid days on our feet taking in the scenery! We will have more coverage for you soon, so stay tuned! Until then, back to our regularly scheduled program! Axial fan Derek Dooley washes his Wraith in the local creek! Thanks for sharing Derek!
Behind the SEC, I've gotten more involved in watching other NCAA conferences and learning how the leagues affect one another (coaching changes, etc...) plus the BCS & Nat'l Championship. I thought the ACC had a # of intruiging aspects - i.e. BC, Clemson (Dabo Swinney beating LSU, UGA, having that program be competing and the like...), Duke, FSU (an impressive program under Jimbo Fisher, our fmr OC under Saban & Miles & their current QB), UNC & NC State, Syracuse, Wake Forest... With changes to the Big 10 & Big 12 (Baylor held strong tonight too...), making them misnomered in that the former has 12 teams (then 14 come 2014) and vice versa (due to the 2 newest members of our conference defecting), they've been good for some chuckles if nothing else; and then there's the American (former Big East) being newly developed... Well, I've been looking forward to this Stanford-Oregon game for a few weeks now, not just for the upset of but after Oregon's comments against Mike Leach & Washington - c'mon, you're serio ...
5 head coaches have worn the headset since my last UT game: Phil Fulmer, Lane Kiffin, Derek Dooley, Jim Chaney (Interim), Butch Jones.
Researching my speech topic and I came across this. I'll admit, I lol'd a bit harder than I probably should have. Sorry Derek Dooley.
Funniest thing I've seen in a long time: Who are the Berry twins? Sincerely, Derek Dooley
Nearly a year since Derek Dooley was mercifully relieve of his duties as head coach of the Vols. When the report that was first leaked by Volquest.com became reality upon UT Athletic Director Dave Hart officially announcing Derek Dooley's firing on November 18, 2012, following the humiliating loss to Vanderbilt, nearly the entire Vol Nation was relieved and hopeful that under Hart, greener pastures lie ahead for the Vols football program. On December 7, 2012, former Central Michigan and Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones was named to the same position here in Big Orange Country. Onto the ash heap of history were the three years of humiliating defeats and sub-mediocre teams and recruiting practices instituted by Derek Dooley and in was a man with a vision for a return to dominance for Tennessee football. Tennessee became the eighth program in the history of college football to win its 800th game with his season opener victory over Austin Peay, 45-0. Since then, he has maintained this young and experienced . ...
We'll thank you Derek Dooley for the lack of talent that you left behind. Thank you!!
Can someone let Al Golden know the getup he's wearing looks foolish? At least he's not wearing Derek Dooley pants.
I thank the good Lord we fired Derek Dooley. If he was still at UT we wouldn't have any kind of future. Butch Jones is doing the best he can with what he has this year and has recruited a top 5 recruiting class. Not to mention the raw talent josh dobbs brings to the table. He's making mistakes a true freshman usually makes but is improving on each and every snap. The Future for the vols looks very bright!
All I can say is if your a Tennessee fan, just hold on until Butch Jones gets some more talent in here. Because right now we have Conference USA talent playing the toughest schedule in the country. It makes you wonder what Derek Dooley was doing during recruiting time? One thing is for sure Dooley was not a good evaluator of talent. Help is coming next year, but win or lose it is still GO VOLS!!
First Derek Dooley, then Zack Mettenburger, and now Will Muschamp. When you turn on UGA, you pay the price. GO DAWGS!!!
Tennessee getting the poo poo beat out of them by Missouri, that is embarrassing a non-sec team!!! Missouri 31 to Tennessee 3!!! I think Tennessee should have given Derek Dooley more of a shot!!! Maybe one day Tennessee want suck? Go Vols!!! Who Dat!!!
Apparently Derek Dooley called and got a temp job in Missouri today...
Has Derek Dooley been coaching UT the last two weeks? The players just seem to be going through the motion. Just like the last three years.
Win or lose, one thing is for certain for Vols Team they will not go down without a fight in this game unlike Derek Dooley's teams made a habit doing every week they played, win or lose.
Daniel Hood says UT coach Derek Dooley is one of the most important people in his life
bobby valentine and Derek Dooley are 4th cousins
Nice photoshop, but Derek Dooley remains the most terrifying part of that image.
The Cards are playing like they're managed by Derek Dooley.
I try to put something new on the media sign-in sheet every day. Next week: "Your Mom" on Tuesday and "Derek Dooley, Esq." on Wednesday.
Due to mudduckulous swamp donkey Derek Dooley created it, please stop using real folks will stop using it ASAP!
Oh the delights of Derek Dooley Way :-(
Things I would rather do than watch the NBA: praise Derek Dooley.
I tutored Derek Dooley on WWII history, bamboo, and shower etiquette. Couldn't help what he did with it.
I am smarter than Derek Dooley ever thought about being.
I picked a scary costume for Halloween this year... I'm dressing up as Derek Dooley.
he's more like a whiny loud mouth Derek Dooley
Derek Dooley is the wide receivers coach at Dallas. Nice gig after getting fired from Tennessee I'd say.
who knew that derek dooley was the Cowboys wide reciever coach?
This shows that Derek Dooley has no business being a football coach.
it was comical for me to see former Vol Coach Derek Dooley trying to console his Dez. He had practice a UT.
Dez Bryant was just venting fustration of new dallas WR's coach derek dooley not wanting to sell him his orange slacks.
Fire Dooley: Days of Future Past. Time travel will be used to stop the events leading to the hiring of Derek Dooley as UT HC.
if only one half of football counted by God Derek Dooley would have been 8-4 last yr
My favorite thing about the Dez and Romo stuff is that Derek Dooley is right in the middle of it.
go figure... A team that has bad team chemistry has Derek Dooley as a coach... Coincidence?
The funniest part of the Dez Bryant video was when Derek Dooley kept trying to coach Dez and he was like "I got it."
Am I the only who thinks Dez Bryant shouldn't be fined for not taking the time to knock Derek Dooley out during his tantrum?
I was watching that video of Dez Bryant do absolutely nothing wrong when A WILD DEREK DOOLEY APPEARED
I'm pretty sure Derek Dooley didn't sign up for this...Dez Bryant had the most absurd tantrum since ...http:/
I think your forgetting that the coach is Derek Dooley ...you're allowed to yell at Derek Dooley lol
I just found out what Dez Bryants problem was during the game. He figured out Derek Dooley was his wide receiver coach!!!
I will NEVER get tired of seeing Dez Bryant yell at Derek Dooley on the sidelines. NEVER.
randomfact highest average home league attendance came in 1952/3 when the goals of Derek Dooley fuelled a 42,539 average
Peep this: Told you on yesterday that the Dez Bryant issue was a non issue: Here is the transcript of the audio version from the league.IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has taken some heat in the past 24 hours for two sideline rants in the loss to the Detroit Lions. But sideline audio and video released by NFL.com on Monday night, supports Bryant's assertion he was offering support to his teammates. During the first sideline chat, when Bryant is waving his arms, he yells, "No, we can't let them do that. They playing me (expletive) up. We destroy that." [+] EnlargeDallas' Dez Bryant AP Photo/James D. Smith"It's all about motivating, trying to get guys' minds right and things like that," said Dez Bryant. Bryant is referring to press-man coverage by the Lions, something Bryant feels he can beat with a deep pass. Quarterback Tony Romo and wide receivers coach Derek Dooley are also on the audio speaking to Bryant about watching where the safety is playing him. After Bryant breaks throug ...
I can't stand Dez Bryant but if I had to deal with Derek Dooley telling me what to do everyday, I'd crack too.
ESPN's obviously missing the point. Dez Bryant was obviously upset at his lack of a receivers coach- one Derek Dooley
Aand Derek Dooley is in the middle of Dez Bryant's, uhh, passionate rant with Tony Romo on the sideline:
Derek Dooley Cameo RT: Hear what Dez Bryant was really saying during sideline outburst against the Lions. MUST-SEE:
wanna watch Dez Bryant yell at Derek Dooley? lol
Derek Dooley should have Flair chopped Dez Bryant to the ground and then put him in the figure four leg lock.
Great video. On a side note, I love Derek Dooley.
OK, so what Dez Bryant said to Romo and Derek Dooley wasn't really bad. Wish the Jason Witten audio was up too.
In those photos Carpenter looks more like Clay and Clay looks more like Derek Dooley.
Just realized Derek Dooley was the one trying to settle Dez Bryant down yesterday. That stuff is sooo hilarious now.
if Derek Dooley were to rock the stubble, y'all could be twins from that angle.
If Dez Bryant wanted to yell at Derek Dooley, why didn't he do it like everybody else and call a sports talk show in Kno…
Not sure what concerns me more; Jerry Jones saying he worries about RBush more than Megatron or Derek Dooley being one of our coaches.
Derek Dooley needs to go back to being a lawyer before he gets killed on the sidelines in Dallas!
well they did talk, and it became a three-person conversation with the esteemed Derek Dooley.
Also Derek Dooley actually kind of knew what he was talking about except for the fact he sounds like the HS coach from Blind Side
You gotta check out Derek Dooley giving him pointers about sitting on his route though. Hilarious.
Silly Derek Dooley, thinking just because he's the WR coach he is allowed to "coach" (1:05)
He is actually listening intently to Derek Dooley lol
I would like to thank Dez Bryant for doing to Derek Dooley what I wanted to do to him for three years in Knoxville!
It's the week of Halloween. I think Derek Dooley must have summonsed Dez Bryant's inner Da'Rick Rogers yesterday.
All this talk 'bout Dez Bryant! Derek Dooley get your player under control!
Dez Bryant really needs someone who commands his respect as WR coach. Alas, his WR coach is Derek Dooley.
Wait, so you're telling me this show Hart of Dixie isn't an autobiography of Derek Dooley's coaching career?
Dez Bryant’s meltdown on the sidelines in Detroit was wildly entertaining for NFL fans, maddening for Cowboy fans and business as usual for the Cowboys themselves. Anarchy is the rule at Valley Ranch. Has been since Jimmy Johnson was deposed almost 20 years ago. That’s the Cowboy culture. There is no authority, at least not with the football delegation. Jerry Jones is the boss, the coaches are mere strategists who need not concern themselves with discipline and personalities and the like, and players answer to Jones. No one else. It’s been that way for a generation, and it’s not a secret. So Dez Bryant, like Terrell Owens and others before him, knows the ramifications are limited if he rants and raves along the bench area at quarterback Tony Romo, receivers coach Derek Dooley, head coach Jason Garrett or even team leaders DeMarcus Ware and Jason Witten. WATCH: Dez Bryant goes off on sidelines Sunday VOTE: Better catch, Calvin Johnson in double coverage of Dez Bryant one-hander? That kind of thing ...
Did anybody recognize 1 of those coaches that Dez Bryant was going off on on the sidelines? Derek Dooley.
Watching Dez Bryant punk out Derek Dooley on the sidelines yesterday should make UT fans realize exactly why the Vols were sub par for those seasons.
I don't know why everyone is so upset about this Des Bryant thing. Derek Dooley clearly has everything under control.
DID YOU SEE SHEFFIELD COLLISION Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision which left a 30-year-old man with serious injuries. The man was driving a blue Ford Mondeo along the A61 Derek Dooley Way, in the direction of Sheffield Parkway, when the vehicle left the road and collided with a tree. It happened at about 4.50am on Saturday 26 October. The man was taken to Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital where he remains in a serious condition. Anyone who witnessed the collision, or who may have seen the vehicle as it drove along the A61, is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 289 of 26 October.
You know, Dallas, the first thing you did wrong was hire Derek Dooley! He's a fing joke!!!
Derek Dooley getting yelled at by Dez Bryant during the cowboys game. Priceless :)
So the Cowboys give up 329 to Megaton. Who is playing safety?? But i have to say when Dez is raising Cain did you see Derek Dooley? Boy now THATS coaching!! His reaction was don't talk to me go yell at your QB. Kiffin was a jerk and i don't feel sorry for him at all. Derek Dooley is not a good coach, at all, in any capacity. In Dooley's case your football team gets better by subtraction. Glad he is in Dallas!
I think Dez Bryant was yelling at Derek Dooley yesterday because of the crappy job Dooley did at Tennessee.
These videos of Derek Dooley trying to calm down Dez Bryant are hilarious. Probably telling him "Dude, I'm here now. We're going to lose games like this."
Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant lost control on the sideline during a 31-30 loss Sunday to the Detroit Lions, yelling at assistant Derek Dooley and quarterback Tony Romo, then yelling at tight end Jason Witten before being calmed by DeMarcus Ware.
Programming note: next Sunday is Vikings at Cowboys (aka Cordarrelle Patterson vs Derek Dooley).
Disney on Ice with the kiddos yesterday was fun. It was nice to see Maddie get into it so much. Peyton not so much. It was all about the Princess' and P wanted to know why they don't bring Splash Mountain on the road for these shows!! I like his way of thinking. He did however enjoy the pyro at the end. What else happened yesterday?? Missouri lost...LOL. On to the more pressing subject at hand. Welcome Mr. Hendrix to the VOLS. Help is on the way. There was no way we were going to win yesterday. No way. The gap in depth is so deep. I blame Derek Dooley. I would just hope that he never, ever comes around Knoxville again. IF you had told us as a fanbase that after the Bama game.4-4. We would be smiling. I'm still smiling. Butch is doing a great job getting kids to commit, now if he can just get them on signing day or as EE's will be key. I truly do believe that help is on the way. As far as the Tide goes. They should have won and they did. Mr. McCarron needn't get ...
Another coach the Cowboys need to get rid of is WR coach Derek Dooley... He couldn't win at Tennessee and just because his dad is Vince Dooley means nothing.. I'm sure Dooley wet his Bulldog under-Roos today when Dez had his meltdown.
That moron Dez Bryant melting down on the sideline and yelling at Derek Dooley and Jason Witten. Lol what a goon.
If you haven't seen the GIF of Dez Bryant chewing out Derek Dooley on the sidelines, watch it.seriously, go and watch it right now.
*** Jason garret,did you let Derek Dooley call that last play.you had 12 seconds and two timeouts.WHAT THE *** IS WRONG WITH YOU.
3 reasons why you'll have success as a football team: 1. You dont hire Derek Dooley 2. You dont hire Derek Dooley 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2
Everyone says Dez Bryant is immature for yelling at Derek Dooley in the 8th week of the season. I consider him a saint for lasting that long.
Cowboys, you invited these meltdowns when you hired Derek Dooley.
So, THAT'S what happened to Derek Dooley. Fall forward, my man. Keep falling forward.
Derek Dooley getting screamed at by Dez Bryant. lol
I don't like the Cowboys, never really have; but I loved seeing Dez Bryant cussing Derek Dooley out on the sideline.
I just saw Coach Derek Dooley on the sidelines of the Dallas Cowboys. He was restraining a player who was screaming at another player or coach. I am glad he got a good job so quickly. Coach Dooley is where he belongs as an assistant coach for wide receivers. This reminds me of seeing Coach Meyers ( spelling ???) on Dallas sideline. He coached at Lebanon High School for a few years and I don't think he won over 2 games in a year,but he became an assistant for Dallas Cowboys. Hollywood Henderson (in his book) talked about how crazy Coach Meyers was.
I was pulling for the Cowboys to beat the Lions so the Packers could gain some separation from the perennial pretenders from the Motor City in the NFC North. Then I saw Derek Dooley on the Cowboys' sidline and almost threw up in my mouth.
Dez Bryant just seen on the Cowboys sideline yelling at Derek Dooley. Vols fans everywhere just became Dez Bryant fans
Did anybody else just see Dez Bryant absolutely ripping into Derek Dooley on the Cowboys sideline?
Lol Dez Bryant yelling at Derek Dooley! Even Dez knows he ***
Nice to see Derek Dooley is still doing what he does best when faced with a situation... Ignore it.
Just saw Dez Bryant yelling at Romo and Derek Dooley! Made my day! Even if he is an ***
Yes, that was Derek Dooley that Dez Bryant was berating on the sideline...
Seeing Dez Bryant on the sideline arguing with Derek Dooley brings back a lot of memories.
I figured it out...when Jerry Jones lets Jason Garrett go Derek Dooley is going to be his next patsy.
can't even enjoy watching my Dallas Cowboys play the Lions. They just showed a close up of the Dallas sidelines, and there he was, Derek Dooley.good grief.just hope he is a better wide recievers coach then he was our Vols Coach
The reactions from folks in Tennessee's athletic department to Saban's "Derek Dooley's hard work" quote are pretty funny...
Even thou my Vols lost yesterday. The sun still came up this morning. "Our day will come just not right now" Derek Dooley.
With the score 35-0 at halftime, it made you long for the good old days of Derek Dooley. After all, Dooley lost to Alabama by only 31 points in each of his three matchups with the Crimson Tide.
Tennessee will be back, Butch Jones has already done more in half of a year than Derek Dooley could ever do in 3. We have the rated recruiting class in the nation, and we just beat a top 10 team a week ago. Better times are coming for Tennessee! We just have to be patient until then! Go Vols!
Somewhere right now Derek Dooley is laughing hard. Welcome to Tuscaloosa Butch Jones!
billy no mates,barring Derek dooley
Former Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley's words for struggling kicker Mike Palardy when attempting a big field goal "don't bleep it up" that's so classy . Not ! Great coaching . Just another reason Derek Dooley was trash and why Vols fans should love Butch even more ... palardy has missed one field goal in 10 attempts
"But because Oregon's facility is hailed as the latest and perhaps greatest recruiting advantage, others at the elite end of the spectrum will hustle to catch up. Alabama's facility has a waterfall now, and 10-foot tall replicas of the school's most recent championship rings. Tennessee's plans for a $45 million football facility were altered midstream by then-coach Derek Dooley to include $9 million in adjustments from another consultant. The reason, according to Dooley: "If (recruits) don't go wow, then we hadn't done our job."" College football is a sham, and a ridiculous one at that. Greed and exploitation are now the head coaches and leaders of football programs. I cannot support such an atrocity.
Where was I?? Where I spend every Saturday.. I was out waxing Jerry Jones Rolls Royce... Its part of our deal. -Derek Dooley
This is my last bash on Derek Dooley. I heard Jimmy Hyams on Enrichment Sports this moring say that he had Fuad Reveis on his radio sports talk program after the game last night. Reveis said that Dooley would tell Michael Palardy before he would go on the field to not Fit up. What kind of head coach would say something like this to a field goal kicker. That's not being a coach! What a huge mistake it was to hire him as a football coach!! I'm done with bashing Dooley. no more . Go Vols!!!
Georgia just fell apart after they played Tennessee . Mark Richt may be in need of a job soon . Nobody loses to Vandy and keeps their job ask Derek Dooley !
And that, Derek Dooley, is how you get a signature win! Now go cry to your mommy and take your orange pants with you! Go Vols!
To everyone who said only won at CMU & Cincy because he had Bryan Kelley's recruits...he just won with Derek Dooley's guys...
My Vols knocked off the Gamecocks today!!! Butch Jones accomplished something today, that Derek Dooley couldn't manage to do in 3 years. The future of Volunteers football is looking brighter every week. BUTCH PLEASE!!!
Butch Jones done in 7 games what Derek Dooley couldnt do in 3 yrs.
Somewhere, someplace.Derek Dooley and Lane Kiffin are embracing each other and shaking uncontrollably
Derek Dooley is the man. Oh wait we never played that hard for him!
Lane Kiffin & Derek Dooley this is how you win games at Tennessee.
Someone see if Derek Dooley wants to come back to UT and hangout around the water cooler. I know the guys are thirsty! Ha
Georgia fans...Derek Dooley is available. He cant do any worse.
Wow, I wouldn't believe if I saw it. UT beat South Carolina team coach by Spurrier ranked on the last play. Butch Jones proves with mainly Derek Dooley's players that coaching matters and is the difference between winning and losing. In other words, Butch is earning his money already!!
There is the"signature win" that eluded Derek Dooley. Huge win for the Volunteers.
In 37 games Derek Dooley had 0 signature wins. In 7 games Butch Jones has one. Way to go Vols!!
Better take the warning, Bielema... Muschamp ain't lyin'! Just off the top of my head, Saban has contributed to the end of SEC careers for: - Phil Fulmer - Tennessee - Derek Dooley - Tennessee - Gene Chizik - Auburn - Tommy Tuberville - Auburn (resigned to avoid being fired) - Urban Meyer - Florida (resigned before it killed him) - Bobby Petrino - Arkansas (fired for affair, but Bama put him on the hot seat) When facing Nick Saban... either prepare your team or prepare your resume! ROLL NICK ROLL!!
Appears Vandy coach James Franklin is using a Derek Dooley slogan now.
Here is my short list of candidates for the Southern Cal job. In no particular order. 1. Derek Dooley. He replaced Lame Kiffin at Tennessee and we all see how that worked out. 2. Bobby Petrino need I say more? 3. Chip Kelly hey Petrino left the Falcons in the middle of the year and we see how things worked out for him.
ole miss...? Maybe last year but that hasn't been a common occurrence. It's just because Derek Dooley blew.
These people that call in on the post game shows, holy cow. This loss rests on the hard work and deliberate strategy of none other than Mike Hamilton. He was the wizard who conjured up the Lane Kiffin/Derek Dooley era. If you want to judge Butch Jones, then set your sights on the 2015 season, the year Jones recruits are expected to contribute. For now, measure how this team handles challenges like todays performance, and off field distractions like Mo Couch's improper benefits scandal. A scandal that happened under Dooley. If you are only going to be happy with a victory at Oregon, then pack your bags and move to Eugene, you are polluting the otherwise crisp fall air of the Smokies.
Thank you Mike Hamilton, Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley for leaving your marks on Tennessee football. It is going to take a long time to put their legacies behind us.
When Nick Stephens walks by MT Can't imagine awkwardness of Derek Dooley & Monte Kiffin alone in room trying to make small talk
Monte Kiffin & Derek Dooley are making their debut with the Cowboys tonight. The only one missing is Dave Clawson.
With all the good Butch Jones is doing, it's hard to believe he lost to Derek Dooley.
Reasons Derek Dooley should of stayed at Tennessee
Paging Derek Dooley: Butch mentioned a 3rd down situation where a WR wasn't lined up on the line of scrimmage, would've been a penalty.
Random question: What's Derek Dooley up to these days, other than counting his money?

I can sum up this TN's open practice in the words of Gavin Noe..."Derek Dooley made us PAY for free refills on drinks. Butch is awesome"

No lie. A man just launched a Derek Dooley autographed football from the patio into the Tennessee River.
Is there any chance that Gene Simmons can steal Derek Dooley from Jerry Jones to coach his football team?
Today's moment of zen. Some folks were mad at John Chavis for not coming back to Tennessee and coaching under Derek Dooley.

Derek Dooley on The Fan today. This hire was always weird to me, but I have heard he’s a guy who gives 100% on the job…
Dez Bryant said that he and the other WR's are already building a strong relationship with new WR coach, Derek Dooley. Dez went on to say that having a good relationship with the coaches is very important to him because when you respect each other, it makes it easier to take criticism and then use it to improve.
Dez Bryant spoke about the little things he has been working on this offseason. One thing he has studied closely is Jerry Rice's famous slant-and-go route. "Jerry doesn't just take a step inside, he takes two hard steps inside and he turns his head to look for the ball, which really sells the slant. Then he plants hard, cuts back out and it's a wrap. I'm trying to perfect that route because he runs it so smooth. That's the kind of stuff I've been working on." He then spoke about how new WR coach Derek Dooley has already helped him make strides this offseason. "A lot of times when you're trying to create separation, the DB will lean his shoulder into you and you'll lean yours into him. Coach Dooley told me to quit doing that. He says just keep running and you'll get on top of him because he's leaning and running and you're just running. I've been trying it in practice, and it works."
Derek Dooley wrecked Butch Jones on the field...
Considering changing my major so I can have four years of Butch Jones to outweigh my 3 years of Derek Dooley.
With all the success we have seen with the recent high profile commits Coach Jones has been receiving for the 2014 class, the admin team here at RTB wants to know your opinion- Was Jimmy Cheek REALLY the problem the last few years or was Derek Dooley just that incompetent? BB
Every time Jones gets the another commitment, I shake my head and ask what the *** Derek Dooley was doing for 3 years.
no I think Bruce Pearl, Troy Wills, Tyler Bray, Da'Rick Rogers, Derek Dooley, ut's APR scores...now that's an embarrassment
