There’s a scene in the movie “Titanic” — which has been running about 10 times a day on HBO recently — where rats are running down a hallway in hopes of finding an exit from the sinking ship.
On a completely unrelated note — yes, that’s sarcasm — Tennessee coach Derek Dooley might be on the verge of losing his seventh assistant coach of the offseason. If safeties coach and recruiting coordinator Terry Joseph accepts an offer to become Nebraska’s new secondary coach, only Jim Chaney and Darin Hinshaw will remain as holdovers from last year’s Vol staff… and they will both have some new duties as well.
Joseph served as UT’s full secondary coach last year. Entering the season, the Vols’ DBs were expected to be a strength of the team. They weren’t. Last month, UT hired Derrick Ansley — a former GA at Alabama under new UT D-coordinator Sal Sunseri — to take over the cornerbacks, leaving Joseph to focus on safeties alone.
How Joseph feels about that move will certainly factor into his decision on the Cornhusker job. As will money. As will his view of where the Tennessee program is headed as compared to Nebraska’s.
Bo Pelini is looking for a new secondary coach after losing Corey Raymond to LSU earlier this week.
