Vols' Dooley to coach from stool on sideline

Posted:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Derek Dooley will coach from a stool on the sideline Saturday for the Volunteers' game with No. 1 Alabama.
    
Dooley worked from the press box last week in a 41-31 loss at Mississippi State after undergoing surgery Oct. 9 on a fractured right hip. Dooley had said earlier this week he would probably return to the press box for the Alabama game, though he added that he didn't like the experience because he couldn't look in his players' eyes.
    
Until last week, Dooley hadn't worked a game from the press box since his 2005-06 stint as the Miami Dolphins' tight ends coach. He was the first Tennessee head coach to work a game from the press box since Johnny Majors on Sept. 26, 1992.
