Dooley: “I Can’t Change What Happened”

For all the Tennessee fans who’d like to get their hands on Lane Kiffin, there’s one guy who’d love to be at the front of the line — Derek Dooley.  The alleged scofflaw tactics of Kiffin and his staff have once again left UT’s current coach answering questions about potential violations he himself had no hand in:


“You never want anything to come out on your program that somebody might perceive as negative.  But you know what, I can’t change what happened.  All we can deal with is make sure everybody understands taht this wasn’t under our watch, and it wasn’t involving a coach on our staff and it doesn’t involve a player that’s been in our program.”


Dooley also stated that he hopes the NCAA “is going to stay consistent with what they’ve done, which is, ‘Let’s target the people that make these mistakes, not the programs.’”

Tennessee has been punished for the Kiffin hire, A million times. Dooley is saying why punish him "his program'. NCAA, go get Kiffin and kick his butt out of football.

‘Let’s target the people that make these mistakes, not the programs.’ is total BS. First, they are not 'mistakes'. They are willful violations of NCAA rules, major violations. Second, the people are employed by, and cheating for, the benefit of the PROGRAMS.

Tennessee is responsible for who it hires and for allowing them to purposefully break the rules.

They didn't "allow" him to purposefully break the rules. Kiffin/Garza should be punished, not UT. The UT self-imposed penalties from the previous investigation will be enough. The NCAA is hot after kiffins trail. UT has nothing to worry about. At the worst maybe some recruiting restrictions, that's it. Kiffin should be the one worried.

The University of Tennessee's compliance office's only job is to make sure boosters, coaches and players follow NCAA rules. Did they do their job? No. Should they be punished? Yes.
