No need for the unemployment line for Derek Dooley.
Two days after being hired as a guest analyst for ESPNU's coverage of National Signing Day, the former Tennessee football coach received an even bigger job opportunity.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Saturday that the Dallas Cowboys are prepared to hire the 44-year-old as wide receivers coach.
Dooley, who received a $5 million buyout as part of his firing at Tennesse in November, was in Mobile, Ala., this week for the Senior Bowl, leading to speculation that he might be seeking a job in the NFL.
Dooley was 15-21 in three seasons at Tennessee. This past season, the Vols were 5-7.
Dooley spent two seasons in the NFL as tight ends coach of the Miami Dolphins (2005-06).
