Website puts Derek Dooley atop 'worst coach' list

A dubious honor has been dubbed upon former UT coach Derek Dooley.

Athlon Sports has ranked Derek number one in their list of college football's "20 worst coaches at great programs."

Needless to say, Dooley struggled mightily finishing 2-14 against SEC teams and 15-21 overall.

He took over a program reeling from the departure of Lane Kiffin, who by the way is also on the list at #19 just behind current Florida coach Will Muschamp.
