Vince Dooley’s grandson will walk on at Georgia

UGA legacy gets a shot at wide receiver.

Vince Dooley

The grandson of the most famous coach in Georgia Bulldogs history is going to get a shot on the team as walk-on wide receiver.

John Taylor Dooley should be able to get some good advice on the experience: His father Derek was a walk-on receiver at Virginia.

According to Gridiron Now, J.T. Dooley won a high school state title at Dallas’ Highland Park High as part of a team quarterbacked by Jerry Jones’ grandson John Stephen Jones.

Following his unsuccessful stint as Tennessee head coach, Derek Dooley has been a wide receivers coach for the Dallas Cowboys the last four years.
