Dooley has hip surgery - a legend in the making?

Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley had hip surgery today and plans to coach Saturday upstairs in the box at Mississippi State. 

According to reports, Dooley began to notice the injury several weeks ago but believed it was muscular. Friday he went in for an MRI and received the results (fracture in his hip) yesterday. Surgeons inserted a pin into his left hip. There is word that his only other option was a full hip replacement

We're pretty sure typical "doctor's orders" don't include flying three days after hip surgery or subjecting yourself to the stress of coaching four days after this surgery. Strong move by Dooley. Now, if they are down ten heading into the 4th quarter and Dooley limps onto the field Willis Reed style and the Vols pull one out...
