Tennessee takes its turn at SEC Media Days

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Tennessee coach Derek Dooley wants "a little less conversation" about turning around his football program and more action.

The third-year coach said Thursday at the Southeastern Conference media days that he feels "better about our program than at any other time I've been in Knoxville."

The Volunteers have an 11-14 record over the past two seasons, including a 4-12 mark in the SEC. Dooley says that should improve thanks to a stabilized roster, a healthy quarterback and 17 returning starters.

Junior Tyler Bray was one of the SEC's best passers before injuries limited him to seven games. He threw for 1,983 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Bray also has some talented receivers around him. Da'Rick Rogers led the SEC with 67 catches for 1,040 yards last season.
