Butch Jones Out at Tennessee

Butch Jones ousted at Tennessee

Numerous reports Sunday morning say Jones was sacked; Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman was the first to report it. GN's Jimmy Hyams says Jones was offered the opportunity to coach the final two games but declined. The report originated with Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated.

Head Coach of the University of Tennessee collegiate football team has been sacked following a dismal year where the team has yet to win a single game in the SEC. After back-to-back 9-4 seasons under Jones, the Volunteers were just 4-6 this year and lost 50-17 at Missouri on Saturday. His overall head coaching record is 148-78 and was 11-2 in his first season at MI.

What did Jones tell him?

"Jones went 34-27 overall and 14-24 in the SEC over five seasons".

What Does Tennessee Owe Butch Jones?


Two weeks prior, Tennessee had dropped a game at Kentucky, their second loss to the team in 33 years. He was making $4.11 million per year at Tennessee. The Vols followed up that Georgia defeat by losing four of their next five games.

But Jones couldn't push his program up to the higher level that Vols fans expected.

ESPN reported that defensive line coach Brady Hoke - a former head coach at Ball State, San Diego State and MI - will serve as the interim for the rest of the season. Hoke is in his first year as Tennessee's defensive line coach.

Tennessee hasn't reached the SEC championship game since 2007 and hasn't won a conference title since its 1998 national championship season. He can certainly provide a steadying hand, drawing on previous head coaching experience at Ball State, San Diego State and MI.
