We’re searching for answers on the tenure of Derek Dooley.
About five years ago during the spring of 2013, the Cowboys announced Derek Dooley as the team’s new wide receivers coach.
About four years and 360 days ago I had a conversation with this sweet couple wearing Tennessee gear (where Dooley had just been fired as head coach) while waiting for a table at a restaurant. I mentioned that I was a Cowboys fan, said that Dooley was joining the team somewhat proudly, and got put on blast by Grandma and Grandpa.
“You can have him,” the woman said as she got up (they’d gotten there first and got a booth, salt in my wounds). For what it’s worth, it wasn’t the woman in this video.
