"I could probably get on the field real fast at Tennessee. [Dooley's status] concerns me a little bit. I hate to see them lose their coach," Turman said, "but it doesn't effect me that much because the running backs coach [Jay Graham] told me he would be staying ... He came and watched our game last Friday."
Wow. That is interesting the way he worded that!
Interesting for sure, maybe CJG knows Dooley is gone?

It makes sense though, because Graham has done one of the best jobs of any of the assistant coaches. Definitely an attractive option for the coach next year (whoever it may be).

Very interesting. And I'm glad to see that it appears Jay will be with us regardless of the outcome.

Makes sense to me. I'm sure this was ironed out before Graham left South Carolina.
It's certainly possible that Graham knows something and this kid let it slip, but I think it's more likely that this is just what our coaches have to say to all recruits. They're not going to go around saying "I really don't know what's going to happen to me next year." They would be stupid to say that. They need to show confidence around these kids if they want to have any shot in recruiting them, so of course they're going to say that they will be back. It's certainly an interestingly worded quote, but I don't think we can be sure what it means.
But with that said, if Dooley does get fired, the next coach would be an idiot not to keep Graham so it wouldn't surprise me if this actually is what happens, whether this kid meant it that way or not.
Holy crap, Dooley haters will grab at anything for hope of getting rid of him. The "he" in that quote is referring to Dooley. So Jay Graham was telling him that he(Dooley) will be there next year so that Turman shouldn't worry. All of our coaches are assuring the recruits that Dooley will be there next year.
I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree, because that isn't how I interpret it. I think reasonable people can disagree on this.

I've always felt that if Dooley got fired Graham would retain his position. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if that was discussed when he came on board, considering the perception of Dooley's long-term future at UT after the loss to Kentucky and the exit of many of his assistants at the end of last year. I wouldn't be surprised if Graham has had more recent discussions with Hart about to affirm his status with the program.

I disagree. The " he" refers to Graham. Turman said he was concerned of Dooleys status, but it doesn't affect him much cause he, ( Graham), would be staying.
