Dooley needs to lighten up
In an e-mail from Tech Media Relations Director Malcolm Butler, area media types were told that Dooley doesn't want anyone calling his assistant coaches or his players. Everything must go through Butler. Sounds like Dooley is going to be a Nick Saban-type control freak, which will severely limit the fan's rights to know what's going on in the program.
Someone in charge needs to tell Dooley real quick that he is at Louisiana Tech, not LSU or the Miami Dolphins. Media access is a must if Tech wants to grow its program. Bicknell never had a problem with a phone call directly to him at any time of the day and it didn't bother him if you called one of his players.
If Dooley wants to be successful in Ruston, that's one asset of his predecessor that he should adopt.
