Dooley is becoming more likeable

Louisiana Tech football coach Derek Dooley is starting to grow on me, and I haven't yet decided whether or not to have the lump removed.

Dooley didn't get off to a good start with the media by imposing new regulations on how approachable he and his players would be during practices and during the season. But the affable coach has started to lighten up on some fronts.

Last Sunday evening, Dooley was at his approachable best. He could have done one interview with all the media in attendance and was even encouraged to do so by the Tech Media Relations Department. Instead, Dooley did one-on-ones with everyone there and stayed as long as requested.

Dooley was funny, entertaining and tossed out some valuable information. He had specific comments about each one of the Shreveport and Bossier City area Bulldogs who will be contributing to the team this year. Watch The Times for upcoming stories on Weldon Brown (Bossier), Brian White (Springhill), Dennis Morris (Woodlawn), Ramone Randle (BTW) and Wes Day (Captain Shreve). Freshmen were off limits, so we won't hear from the Shreve, Evangel and Northwood players who signed in February.
