Wonder how long it will take Dools to get a HS gig?


Just curious, what is YOUR coaching resume??

Dooley = Shula

Shula was hired at "O Bama" because no one else wanted the job.

Dooley was hired at U.T. because no one else wanted the job.

Shula was "O Bama's" 10 choice as their coach.

Dooley was our tenth choice.

Shula could recruit, fairly well but could not coach.

Dooley could recruit, fairly well but could not coach.

Dooley father was a coaching legend.

Shula's father was a coaching legend.

Shula was the keeper of the "O Bama" program until they could get off of probation and hire a better coach.

Dooley was the keeper of the U.T. program until they could hire a better coach.
Shula was infinitely better than Dooley

North Texas State. Well, that was another beauty. I was there. Some midget back ran for over 100 yards and had like a 99 yard kickoff return. We had first and goal at the 9 and ended up punting on 4th and goal from the 41. You couldn't make up what happened in that game. At the time seemed like rock bottom of all time on Rocky Top.

Mike Shula is insulted with this comparison.

If you had a clue about the subject, I might agree with you.

Kiffin may have crashed the program into a tree, but Dooley pulled the tree right down on top of it.

Don't know why this is still brought up. Kippy was not going to take an interim position.

Nope. Just reporting the facts of the game and the general reaction at the time. I've been through many "all time lows". There will be more for all of us. Just keep moving forward...

Shula would curb stomp Dooley. Atleast Shula did go to a BCS Bowl.
