It seems a bit tacky to me. I would rather let Joker finish his last game as HC with dignity. Why kick Dooley out for just one game? What is the purpose in that?
Maybe DD told them find someone else to coach seeing as he was fired.
Da, like I tell my wife al the time. Thanks for the information. To those of use that are not a smart asz and or need further clarification, why fire Dooley with one game to go?

As I understand it, Dooley was given the option of finishing out the season just as Phillips was. Dooley decided not to exercise it. I could be wrong though, I'm not all that in-tune with Tennessee football.
This is accurate according to reporters I know down there.
I sense there's a huge difference between how the UT players feel about Dooley vs. how the UK players feel about Joker. I doubt they begged him to stay.
But I'd say in 9 times out of 10, you'd want the old coach out of the picture. Joker was an exception because of his relationship with the university, the players, and the AD.
