Butch Jones' time as Tennessee football coach is over

Butch Jones ousted at Tennessee

Jones has gone 34-27 during his Tennessee tenure and is 14-24 in the SEC.

The Vols will need an interim head coach and Brady Hoke is the next man up.

Butch's 2016 team scored 473 points and 63 touchdowns, both marks the most in a single season in Tennessee history.

Yet the bad effort showed that the team had quit on Jones or didn't consider him a coach for whom to show its best effort.


Hoke last acted as a head coach during 2014 in his final season with the Michigan Wolverines.

The sudden decline has been shocking. The struggles in 2017 come after Jones had led the Vols to consecutive 9-4 seasons, as well as three straight bowl wins.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former head coach at MI, will serve as UT's interim coach for the remainder of the season. When was this team going to overtake the competition in the SEC East, finally defeat Alabama, win a conference championship and be in the College Football Playoff discussion?

It appears Hoke is only being considered as a temporary solution; the Volunteers will limp through the rest of the season and try to find a high profile coach in the offseason. Previously, Butch was the head coach at the University of Cincinnati and was also the head coach at Central Michigan. But a top Power 5 coaching position is unlikely in the near future. With Tennessee looking for a new coach the five most popular names to become the next Vols head coach are below. And now, the football program is looking for its fourth head coach in nine years.
