ATLANTA -- Vols head coach Derek Dooley was a part of the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament that will be televised nationally on ESPN2 on Saturday, Aug. 6, at 12 p.m. The event features the nation's top coaches and celebrity alumni from the SEC and ACC. Dooley played with UT legendary receiver Stanley Morgan.
The nation's premier head coach and celebrity golf event was held at the beautiful Reynolds Plantation resort on Lake Oconee outside Atlanta on May 3. Over the past five years, the Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge has provided more than $2.5 million in scholarship and charity to its participating universities.
The event culminates with a made-for-TV round featuring university head coaches and celebrity alums competing for scholarship money for their schools.
This year's Challenge contributed a record $638,000 in scholarship and charitable donations, including $70,000 to aid tornado victims in the state of Alabama.
The broadcast will also feature exclusive interviews with the participating coaches and highlights from the long drive and closest-to-the pin competitions that took place prior to the golf tournament.
The Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge featured pairings that included a university head coach and a celebrity or former athlete from the same school competing in a scramble format against other university teams from the ACC and SEC.
