Dont know if this has been posted yet but Associate head coach and LB coach Sal Sunseri is leaving the Tide to become the D-coordinator at Tennessee.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
... should help Tenn.
I doubt it. Once a tire fire is started you just have to let it burn out.
He'll say on as DC next year when Dooley is fired and replaced by Kirby Smart.
This cannot hurt our chances in Dallas.
Money, cash, hoes brah. Such is the life in the ESSSSS EEEEEEE SEEEEE
I think...maybe...hell I don't know
That's considered base treason in Alabama. You really don't see that too often, and won't see it a lot going forward.
Bama sure has a lot of traitors. Dave Hart the AD is from Bama, as is the current LB coach Lance Thompson.
Can't hurt our chances next year, but it won't change much anyway. Alabama's D will still be ridiculous w/o him, Hightower and Kirkpatrick.
If we consider the number of players and coaches that have left Alabama in the past 24 hours, and then extrapolate that trend to continue over the reminder of the offseason, I like our chances.
I see no holes in this logic. I'm going to try to place my bets now...
lol wish I had enough points to upvote.
I didn't see one in the OP do here's a link. Maybe UT's D won't be horrible next season!
Perhapstl they guaranteed him a shot at the top job after this season when they inevitably fire Dooley
First off, the guy was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It's not like that's fighting for the top city in America.
Second, Knoxville is a great small city and the people love football down here. People avoid planning events on football Saturdays because they know Knoxville shuts down on game days. .
Nothing wrong with Knoxville
Johnny Knoxville however is a total douche bag.
is worth a stop down there if you like ribs. Plus, the hotties on campus in umbros and tees (March - Mid November) isn't bad either. Beware the tornados however.
Tuscaloosa for four years - nothing special as a city, but it is a great college town.
Knoxville for four years - infinity times better of a city than tuscaloosa, central to the beach and mountains, atlanta, and nashville, charlotte and charleston. I had a great time living there and the campus is beautiful, except for the big effing orange.
Knoxville was really nice.
That is great to hear. My wife may go to grad school at UT. From my research Knoxville looks ok.
Clearly you've never been to K-town. Douche.
Tennessee will be changing from a 4-3 to a 3-4. Probably not the best idea to change defenses while the coach is on the hot seat.
I know the Obrien ship has sailed but what does this mean for him? Does he fit in a 3-4? (Just curious about a local kid's future)
Smart move for Sunseri as there will likely be a head coaching vacancy there, possibly as soon as next season so it makes sense for him to position himself for that now.
as a ut fan I hope this works for my boys down south next year. easy schedule and returning talent makes for a make or break year for coach dooley.
