Done deal: Derek Dooley to the Dallas Cowboys
Posted by: Pete Roussel on February 4, 2013
Sources have informed CoachingSearch.com that former University of Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley will be named wide receivers coach of the Dallas Cowboys on Monday.
The news does not come as a total surprise.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Dooley would land in Dallas a couple of weeks ago.
Last week, however, Dooley stated last week that he had not accepted the job and that the Cowboys hadn't even made a decision.
The bottom line is the Schefter is becoming like Mort, the guy who knows your traded before you know you're traded.
This is not Dooley's first time coaching in the NFL. After working with Nick Saban at LSU, Dooley served as the tight ends coach for the Miami Dolphins in 2005 and 2006.
No word yet on if Dooley will bring the orange trousers to Big D.
The former Tennessee head coach was set to join the ESPNU telecast of National Signing Day.
