    Gruden to Eagles is already a done deal from what I'm hearing. I'm seeing UTjr go the Sylvester Croom or the Houston Nutt route.

    Why would a coach who has been away from coaching football for 4 years and away from college ball for over 20 want to take a college job?

    Perhaps only if UT was his alma mater but it is not. He was only a graduate assistant there for one year. No mama calling! And for less money than what he makes now?

    And no way in hell the West Virginia coach comes to Knoxville he already has a comparable job and he has an exclusive recruiting territory from his other conference foes.

    Sonny Dykes would be at the top of my list for a head coaching job.

    Sonny Dykes cleaned up Dooley's mess at La tech and there lies the problem. Dooley was not successful at his only previous head coaching job!!!!

    Sonny Dykes has worked a miracle at La tech and is a great recruiters there.

    Bring him in with his staff except offer him the cash to go out and get a high profile proven defensive coordinator. That combination would work.

    Dykes has been an assistance in both the sec(Kentucky) and the the big 12(Texas tech).

    Dooley was 17-20 at La tech. WTF! They hired a guy with a losing record!

    Sonny Dykes in the 3 years after Dooley? 22-13.

    La tech is 9-1 this year. Their only loss was by 2 points to Texas A&M!!! That guy can coach!

    Well, we all agree that Dooley sucks. I guess that's a start.

    Dan Mullen would be worth looking into.

    Doubt by that much, but they will win and UT will go two seasons in a row without a bowl game. When is the last time that happened? Whoever is there next coach will have a lot of work cut out for them.
