Jill interviewed Dooley towards the beginning of the game, and she asked if it was tough to be on the other side of the field from his son. He responded that of course it is hard, but as he told his wife, "our bread is buttered in Athens." I thought that was pretty funny.
That was a good answer
Also, I thought that it was interesting that he stated that he tried to influence his children (son) to do something other than coach.
Coaching was very good to Vince and can be very lucrative.
Why would he not want his son to coach? Pressure and stress? Well his son practiced law for a year and had plenty of pressure and stress without being outside and interacting with the kids and fans.
Legal career vs. College Coach. I would take the coaching job and pay a retainer fee to some hard-nosed legal eagle and forget all about business and deals and I would teach kids to play ball. Every time.
