Derek Dooley Speaks out on Rumors

Head Coach Derek Dooley has been rumored to be a candidate at Mississippi State. He has released a statement regarding his future at Louisiana Tech.

"There has been speculation that I am entertaining other head coaching jobs. I have not been interviewed or contacted by anyone at another university, and I have no intentions of leaving Louisiana Tech. My family and I are very happy in Ruston, and we look forward to continuing to build on the success that our program has achieved in a short time." -- Derek Dooley, Louisiana Tech Head Coach/Athletic Director

This statement should be a calming word for those who were fearful Dooley could be leaving Louisiana Tech after just two seasons. Dooley seems to be on his way to righting the ship left by former coach Jack Bicknell III.
