Dooley: "Hart has not made a decision"

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee football coach Derek Dooley says he hasn't been told whether the Volunteers plan to fire him at the end of the season.

Dooley said at his Monday news conference that he had spoken with athletic director Dave Hart since Tennessee's 51-48 overtime loss to Missouri, which represented the Volunteers' 13th setback in their last 14 Southeastern Conference games. Dooley said Hart informed him that he hadn't decided whether to make a coaching change.

Dooley owns a 15-20 record in his three-year tenure. He is 4-18 in the SEC and 0-15 against Top 25 teams. Tennessee (4-6, 0-6) plays Saturday at Vanderbilt, the only SEC team to lose to the Vols over the last two seasons.
