UT head coach Derek Dooley says he's "out of the red jersey" after undergoing hip surgery on Tuesday.

Dooley will coach Saturday's game at Mississippi State from the press box, after doctors repaired a fracture in his hip. 

He is still on crutches, but made Thursday's practice, driving around in a golf cart as he directed his team.

Dooley was pleased and grateful when 10Sports Director Steve Phillips and anchor Terry Brooks presented Dooley with a giant get well card, signed by WBIR employees, UT students, and some of Dooley's co-workers, including basketball coach Cuonzo Martin and Voice of the Vols, Bob Kesling.
