Former Tennessee coach Derek Dooley will be a guest analyst for ESPNU's coverage of National Signing Day, the network announced today.
Dooley will be paired with former Auburn coach Gene Chizik to talk about recruiting during daylong programming on the network.
Both Dooley and Chizik were fired in November after losing seasons at their schools.
A news release said the coaches would offer "insight into their experiences with (National Signing Day) and firsthand knowledge of what it's like to recruit in a conference that has nine schools ranked in the Top 20 class rankings."
Dooley, who received a $5 million buyout as part of his firing, was in Mobile this week for the Senior Bowl, leading to speculation that he might be seeking an NFL job. But many have suggested that his personality and wit make him an ideal candidate for television.
Dooley was 15-21 in three seasons at Tennessee.
