2010 Tennessee Volunteer Football

Head Coach Derek Dooley

Lane Kiffin has come and gone, and hopefully he hasn't left the Volunteers shattered. Derek Dooley takes over the reins as head coach this year. He's never been the head of such a large program, but he did work under Nick Saban at LSU, so hopefully he learned a thing or two under him. Dooley also happens to be the son of SEC coaching legend Vince Dooley. On paper, it appears that Coach Dooley knows what he is doing, but the future will only tell.

Jonathon Crompton has graduated and Nick Stephens has transferred away, so the position of quarterback is in question. Retired NFL quarterback Phil Simms' son, Matt Simms, has transferred in from community college. He'll probably be pegged as the starter for the 2010 season. The Vols also managed to signed Freshman Tyler Bray out of Kingsburg, California to presumably be Simms back up for this season.

On a positive note, Gerald Jones and Denarius Moore return at the wide receiver position along with Luke Stocker at tight end. This is a huge help for essentially a wounded lineup-assuming UT can get a quarterback that can hit their receivers.

Dooley somehow managed to sign a top ten recruiting class, so maybe the future is not too bleak, but only time well tell. The Big Orange face a tough schedule this year. Assuming a blow out against UT Martin in the first game, the Oregon, Florida, LSU, Georgia, and Alabama games will not be so easy. Tennessee may very well be looking at another 7-6 season for 2010. The Pride of the Southland band may not get to play Rocky Top as much as fans would hope.

2010 Schedule

The Vols host Oregon and Florida in back-to-back weeks during September, then travel to LSU, Georgia and South Carolina in October, with a home date against Alabama sandwiched in as well.

 

In November, Tennessee visits Memphis and hosts Mississippi before concluding the season in traditional fashion against Vanderbilt and Kentucky.
