No need for the unemployment line for Derek Dooley.
The Dallas Cowboys announced Saturday they hired the former Tennessee football coach as wide receivers coach.
Dooley, who received a $5 million buyout as part of his firing at Tennessee 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 and 4-7 this past season.
Dallas coach Jason Garrett and Dooley were on the same staff with the Miami Dolphins in 2005-06. Garrett was offensive coordinator, and Dooley coached tight ends. Those are Dooley's only two years of pro experience.
On Thursday, he was hired as a guest analyst for ESPNU's coverage of National Signing Day.
