In an interview with 247Sports earlier this week, Vince Dooley talked about Tennessee's defense...
Considering the mess he inherited from Lane Kiffin, do you think Derek has gotten a fair shake at Tennessee?
Well, there’s no question I knew the job at Tennessee was tough. It’s tougher than I thought it would be. When you have three coaches in three years, you will lose players. They’ve lost some. The last couple of years under Fulmer, who will be a Hall of Fame coach and should be, the recruiting was not as good as it had been. Kiffin comes in and you had changes. Derek gets there and there are more changes and a new staff. It’s pretty obvious to me that, at Tennessee, they are short on personnel. At a lot of places you could come in, like I did at Georgia, and do well early. I don’t see that at Tennessee, particularly on defense. They have rebuilt the offense, but the defense is at the bottom of league. It’s pretty obvious they don’t have as much talent as needed. Sal Sunseri is a good coach. He’s well respected. They just don’t have the personnel yet.
