Former Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley reportedly has a new employer. Surprisingly, it's another coaching job as opposed to a job as an analyst on Television. The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly hiring His Fairness as the team's new wide receivers coach. This from ESPN NFL "Insider" Adam Schefter. If true (and if you can't trust Adam Schefter, than who can you trust?) this would have to qualify has to big the biggest out of left hire of the year so far,
Dooley has a connection to current to Dallas HC Jason Garrett. They were both assistant coaches on Nick Saban's Miami Dolphins coaching staff. He would be replacing current Cowboys WR coach Jimmy Robinson, who will reportedly stay on in an consulting role for the team.
No word yet if Dooley will be bringing his orange ceramic dog with him, though he will probably be leaving the orange pants at home.
