KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Rumors mixed with support and disgust for coach dooley have floated around UT's campus for weeks now. Now that he's officially out, here's what students had to say.

"I think it's good news. Get him out of here. Bring someone in with talent like John Gurden. Keep those orange pants out of Tennessee," said Andrew Peterson.

"He should definitely be gone today, because I mean he made some really bad decisions and those are things that the players can't handle," said Patrick Olson.

"I already heard a lot of people talking about it last night after the game saying, they know he's gonna be fired and that they were pretty glad about it. So I think the talk's gonna get even bigger now," said Ron Peery.
