Derek Dooley describes the offensive system he plans to run at Mizzou

Missouri head coach Barry Odom made arguably the strangest hire of the offseason to date in naming former Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley as his new offensive coordinator, replacing the departing Josh Heupel, who took over the head job at UCF.

Dooley’s hire was so odd on a number of levels. First of all, he was a complete failure at Tennessee. He then went on to coach receivers with the Dallas Cowboys and while star receiver Dez Bryant had some good seasons under Dooley, the Cowboys never really developed another receiver under Dooley much behind the team’s No. 1 target.

In addition to that, Dooley has never called plays or coached the quarterback position. Now he’ll be tasked with both while inheriting a potential future NFL quarterback in Drew Lock.

Missouri officially introduced Dooley during a Friday afternoon press conference. The team’s new offensive leader gave an indication of the offense he plans to run in Columbia.

So what’s Dooley planning on running, he offered up some thoughts during the presser:

Dooley also offered up a few zingers, which should be no surprise to the media folks in Knoxville:
