Early life and family

Dooley was born in 1934, in Mobile, Alabama There, he attended the McGill Institute, administered by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart Dooley then attended Perkinston Junior College in Perkinston, Mississippi from 1952 to 1953 In 1953, he moved on to Mississippi State University and graduated in 1956, where he was an all-SEC lineman for the Maroons/Bulldogs Dooley's brother is former University of Georgia head football coach Vince Dooley, and the two went against each other's teams in the 1971 Gator Bowl His nephew, Derek Dooley is the former head football coach at the University of Tennessee He resided in Wilmington, North Carolina Dooley is married to Marie Dooley He has four sons; Jim, Bill, Sean, and Ashton

Coaching career

With the North Carolina Tar Heels, Dooley won three Atlantic Coast Conference titles, including the school's first outright conference championship in 1971 He left North Carolina as the winningest coach in school history, since been passed by Dick Crum He is still tied for second on the school's wins list, behind Mack Brown, and is still the school's longest-tenured head coach He also achieved the school's first 11-win season in 1972 Only two other Tar Heel teams have ever won 11 games

After his tenure at North Carolina, Dooley served as the athletic director and head football coach at Virginia Tech He led the Hokies to three bowl games—as many as they had attended in their entire history prior to his arrival His best team was the 1986 unit, which went 9–2–1 and won the Peach Bowl That team was later awarded a 10th win after Temple forfeited its entire 1986 schedule--including a 29-13 win over the Hokies--due to an ineligible player Thus Dooley "officially" owns Virginia Tech's first-ever 10-win season

His tenure at Virginia Tech, however, ended shortly afterward amidst allegations of NCAA recruiting violations After resigning from his positions at Virginia Tech, he sued the university for $3,500,000 alleging breach of contract The lawsuit was settled out of court At the time, he was the winningest coach in school history, though he has since been surpassed by his successor, Frank Beamer

Finally, Dooley served as the head coach at Wake Forest where, as of 2015, he is third in the football program's history for all-time wins and tied for fourth in longest tenure
