Entering his third season as head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers, it is doubtful that Derek Dooley is feeling comfortable after a 11-14 record in his first two seasons in Knoxville.

Dooley inherited a program in shambles after the firing of Philip Fulmer and departure of Lane Kiffin after one season. So far, Dooley has completed the off-field steps to improve his team’s reputation. Off-field incidents have been reduced and top-25 recruiting classes are flowing in.

Dooley has not been doing enough in that department.

Fortunately for him, this upcoming season will show significant upturn in the direction of the program on the playing field. Take a look at why Dooley will avoid turning his hot seat into an empty one.
