Butch Jones fired as Tennessee's coach

LSU's next opponent, Tennessee, fires its head coach: report

It's been rumored for weeks that Vols football coach Butch Jones would be on the outs. The Vols are 4-6 this season, 0-6 in the conference and they close the season with two home games against LSU and Vanderbilt.

Jones was hired December 5th, 2012 and was the 24th head football coach in school history.

The team is expected to have a meeting at 1:00pm. "I know Coach Jones will be successful moving forward, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors". Hoke was serving as the defensive line coach at Tennessee and was the head coach at MI before Jim Harbaugh. Other than the dreaded "lack of institutional control", what greater sign could there be that a coach needs to be fired? He's put together three consecutive winning seasons and bowl game victories. A turnaround and return to contention among the top teams in the SEC seemed imminent.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former University of MI head coach, will serve as UT's interim head coach for the last two games.

However, Jones was never able to take UT back to the SEC Championship game.

Hoke was 34-38 at Ball State, 13-12 at San Diego State and 78-70 with the Wolverines, including his best mark of 11-2 in 2011. Hoke could possibly be a head coach again, but after his disappointments at MI and at OR as the Ducks' defensive coordinator, scoring a job at a top program in the near future is extremely doubtful.

The storied program was guided by two head coaches for 32 years - John Majors and Phillip Fulmer.
