Derek Dooley was an emergency hire by the Tennesse Volunteers, following the abrupt departure of Lane Kiffin to USC after only one year Knoxville. However, the coach was fired following a third season that resulted in zero SEC wins for the son of the legendary Vince Dooley.
Nearly a month out of the conclusion of the NFL regular season, however, the Dallas Cowboys have taken their sweet time in bringing Dooley to the professional level.

Dooley compiled an 0-15 record against ranked opponents as a head coach. He was a mere 15-21 in three seasons. However, again, most of Dooley’s wins came again creampuffs.
