Journeyman handicapper OC Dooley’s career has ended after going more than two years without a client. The Woodstock, GA based handicapper’s final message on his website was bragging about his last winning season, the 2009 college bowls. Dooley got his start selling picks on the Thank You For Calling 900-number, then went several years by the alias “Chris Jordan.” Best known for non-sensical so-called “intangibles,” the Temple grad got started in the industry as scorephone announcer Sal Kinder.
“He had a special appeal among the San Francisco demographics,” said the late Mickey Charles, founder of Dial Sports. “He was loved as our Bay Area announcer,” added coworker Ricky T. Dooley is believed to have several children in Costa Rica.
