Source: Dooley to resign on Tuesday?
6:44pm EST: The same source of the information that I reported earlier today has informed me directly that Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley will resign on Tuesday (tomorrow) at 1:00 pm.
That’s all I have – a simple message, received from someone I trust that should know: “Dooley is resigning tomorrow at 1.”
If I receive any further news — supporting this or refuting it, I’ll let you know.
Seems improbable, but regardless, hold on to your hats…
8:59pm EST — UPDATE: Source says that the information is from the inside, but that it could well be crap. We’ll see. Wouldn’t be the first time that inside information was crap.
10:15am EST Tuesday — UPDATE: Yes indeed, the information that Dooley would resign on Tuesday was crap. Dooley appeared at a meeting with the press Tuesday morning in Knoxville and made it abundantly clear that the reports of his death were greatly exaggerated. So much for ‘inside’ sources. They are as prone to mis-information as the rest of us. And so it goes. That has been addressed in my Tuesday post [read here]. And, it should be emphasized that numerous stories at other outlets that Randy Shannon would be announced as the new defensive coordinator were not true either. Life in Knoxville with the Vols remains as crazy and rumor-driven as ever. I don’t think it will even change.
