Derek Dooley won’t be coaching at Tennessee next season. But don’t feel too sorry for him. He’ll be coaching wide receivers for old pal Jason Garrett with the Dallas Cowboys. And the Volunteers will be paying him $5 million over the next few years not to coach in Knoxville.
Having that kind of money rolling in allows Dooley and family to list their 8,818 square foot mansion for $2.9 million. There’s little chance the the ex-UT coach will get what he’s asking for, but Tennessee’s monthly payments to him — more than $100,000 through 2016 — should cover his mortgage costs until someone does decide to make him an offer.
Must be nice.
