Vols focused on improvement during spring practice

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's last two spring practices were all about getting to know a new coach. The Volunteers are kicking off their second spring session under coach Derek Dooley focusing on how to return to being a competitive program again.

The Vols, who finished 2010 6-7 after a loss in the Music City Bowl, will work on becoming bigger, faster and stronger than their Southeastern Conference foes when they return to practice Tuesday afternoon.

Dooley had only been at Tennessee for two months when he began last year's spring practice session. He spent the first two weeks of the period trying to learn who the players were and teach them what he expected of them.

That's why he feels as if he's only just beginning his first proper season at Tennessee.
