Wiedmer: Dooleys are couple, parents of the year

CLEVELAND, Tenn. - Close by the great Georgia football coach stood his wife, all decked out in Tennessee orange for Saturday night's Bradley Sunrise Rotary Club fundraiser.

For 50 years Vince and Barbara Dooley have been married, and for the vast majority of those their wardrobes were dominated by Bulldog red and black, occasionally highlighted by silver.

But then youngest child Derek had to go and accept the UT football job in January. Having always been Mom's favorite - "The older kids still don't like Derek," Vince grinned - Barbara saw little choice but to support her baby and his new employer. She even wore an orange feathered boa to the Big Orange Caravan stop in Atlanta a few months back.
