KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- If Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart decides to change directions in the football program after this season, the move won't be cheap.
UT would have to pay at least $5.6 million, and perhaps as much as $9.3 million, over the next four years to buy out Derek Dooley and his coaching staff, according to an analysis of employment contracts by the News Sentinel.
All but one of Dooley's nine on-field assistants are working under multiyear contracts, including defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri, Tennessee's highest-paid assistant.
But the payouts to fired coaches could vary based on how quickly they find other employment and how much they are paid in their new jobs.
