Tennessee's Derek Dooley is recovering from surgery on his fractured right hip and will coach from the press box Saturday at No. 19 Mississippi State. The school announced Tuesday Dooley had experienced increasing pain in his right hip over the last two months. The coach underwent an MRI on Friday that showed he had a fracture. The Tuesday afternoon surgery was performed by Russell Betcher and Greg Mathien of the Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic at UT Medical Center. Tennessee athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton says Dooley will not be practice Wednesday and that it's uncertain whether he will be at Thursday's practice. Dooley will coach from the press box Saturday, but will consult his doctors and the Tennessee sports medicine staff before deciding whether to return to the sideline next week.
