Derek Dooley didn't take home a championship.
The Tennessee coach did earn some conference bragging rights, though.
With partner and former Vols legend Stanley Morgan, Dooley combined to fire an 8-under-par 64 on Tuesday in the Chick-fil-A Challenge charity golf tournament outside Atlanta. The tandem finished second, earning $60,000 in scholarships for UT, but with Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson and Jon Barry taking home the overall title, the Vols can claim an SEC crown of sorts.
The 12-team field featured SEC representatives in Dooley, Houston Nutt from Ole Miss, Steve Spurrier of South Carolina, Nick Saban from Alabama and Mississippi State's Dan Mullen, along with famous alumni from each school.
"We had a spectacular day on the golf course today, and this incredible group of coaches and celebrities represented their universities in a first-class way," Chick-fil-A Bowl president and CEO Gary Stokan said in a press release. "But the privilege was all ours in being able to give so much back to these great schools and great competitors."
