ennessee’s whirlwind search for a new coach ended Friday with the Volunteers hiring Derek Dooley of Louisiana Tech.
Like his predecessor — Lane Kiffin — he comes with a short head coaching resume.
The son of former Georgia coach Vince Dooley, Derek Dooley went 17-20 in three seasons at Louisiana Tech and was the only coach in major college football to also serve as his school’s athletic director. He holds a law degree and previously worked for several years under Nick Saban at LSU and with the Miami Dolphins, including as a recruiter for the Tigers.
