Mike Shula- 26-23 record as the Head Coach at the Univ. of Alabama (most storied football program in the SEC) from 03-06. Followed severe turmoil with the termination of Mike Price. Son of legendary NFL coach Don Shula. Unimpressive resume(better than Dooley's though), when hired by a premier football university. Youth, inexperience, and injuries plagued his 1st 2 seasons at Alabama. His 3rd season was a dramatic improvement in which the team went 10-2 and led to him receiving a 6 year contract extension. In his 4th year, the team faltered to a 6-6 record, thus leading athletic director Mal Moore to fire him, and pay him a 4 million dollar buyout. Then the team hires a certified coaching badass in Nick Saban and has went on an impressive 55-12 run, including 2 national titles. Recruiting is currently off the charts for the Crimson Tide. [ddiapos]- 11-14 record as the current Head Coach at the Univ. of Tennessee (2nd most storied football program in the SEC) from 2010 till present. Followed severe turmoil in the aftermath of the Fulmer firing/Kiffin resignation. Son of legendary SEC coach Vince Dooley. Unimpressive resume. Youth, inexperience, and injuries plagued his first two years at the helm of the Vols program. His 3rd season is expected to be a very good improvement. Beyond this we don't know, but the university hired Dave Hart as the AD, who went through the Shula/Saban transition at Alabama, and expect Hart to try to make a homerun hire if Dooley does not pan out. Recruiting is top 15-20 in the country under Dooley. it was in that range with Shula at Alabama. I couldn't help but do this. I know that this has been beaten to death, but the parallels are astounding. Add anymore that may come to your mind.
