Report: Derek Dooley out as Tennessee football coach at season’s end
Derek Dooley will be fired as the head football coach at the University of Tennessee after this season, according to a report on Tennessee-focused Rivals site volquest.com.
Dooley has been under increasing scrutiny throughout this season, his third in charge of the Volunteer football program. His team is winless in the Southeastern conference and owns a 4-6 record overall. The team’s last loss to SEC newcomer Missouri was especially bad – Tennessee held a two touchdown lead, but allowed the Tigers to rally back. Missouri won the game 51-48 after four overtimes.
The Volunteers have a 15-20 record in three seasons with Dooley at the helm, with a 4-18 mark against SEC competition.
