    @AdamSchefter: Dallas Cowboys are set to hire former Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley as their WR coach.

    Didn't see that one coming, anyone know more about him?

    Coached on Saban's Dolphins staff. There's the connection.

    Surprising, since I never read anything about Jerry even interviewing him.

    Well that sucks. I hate losing Jimmy Robinson.

    Dooley coached WRs in college at SMU. It's really a guess how he'll do in the NFL.

    This will not be a popular hire with the fan base, I'm guessing.

    I mean, half the fans will like anything, but the other half will probably not like it.

    He was fired in 2012 from the Tennessee Volunteers. I hate TN but I like Dooley. He had two really good receivers last year.

    What some fans will hate, is that his is obviously a Garrett hire. Doesn't Jive with prevailing thinking.

    So are you saying that makes us one-percenters?

    Jimmy Robinson really had a connection with Dez and you could see that on the sidelines. I am a bit concerned with how that will effect Dez.

    Im a UT vol fan and happy to have him. He isn't a good head coach but he is a good positional coach. He coached up Hunter and Patterson.

    This is a Garrett hire all the way.

    was Robinson forced out or is he retiring? Never heard for sure....I liked him very much but I thought he got hit on the sidelines during preseason and sustained a concussion....can anyone confirm? Anyway, I don't know too much about Dooley but what I've heard and read isn't too great.

    he was the TE coach for the Dolphins under Saban and then became a head coach at La Tech and UT.

    I heard he was retiring due to medical reasons and will still be with the team but not enough time to be a coach.

    I was talking about any past experience he had coaching WRs.
