I think Dooley got a raw deal in TN. Flulmer ran the program into the ground, and Kiffin didn't help matters. Dooley was put in a position without much chance of succeeding. If you go by his record there, he did a miserable job, but if you followed the program at all, you know that the team improved significantly over the past coupla years. Then were in a lot of games against vastly superior opponents until late, but always found a way to lose. Of course, you can argue that's his fault, but the team just didn't have the athletes to succeed. Plus, he wasn't around long enough to field a team that he recruited. He had to work with what was already there, and managed to play competitively most of the time. I think the late-season losses to Mizzou & especially Vandy were his undoing, but I bet the program is already wishing they had kept him for next year, even if he started 2013 "on thin ice."
