Knoxville, Tenn. (WHNT) – Two Vols’ coaches have close ties to Alabama.
Head coach Derek Dooley was Nick Saban’s recruiting coordinator at LSU.
Defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri is the father of Crimson Tide defensive back Vinnie Sunseri.
Both have fallen to 3-4 and 0-4 in the SEC, after the Tide dismantled the team 44-13.
After the game, Vinnie spoke to WHNT about how tough it was battling his father and Nick Saban gave his former assistant a compliment, saying the football program is getting better under his watch.
