Butch Jones' time as Tennessee football coach is over

Butch Jones fired by Tennessee

With Tennessee looking for a new coach the five most popular names to become the next Vols head coach are below. The report originated with Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated.

It took longer than most expected, but Butch Jones is out as Tennessee's coach.

The Vols fell to Missouri on Saturday by a score of 50-17.

"We have been fortunate to have coach Jones lead our program for the past five years", Currie said. The Vols went 5-7 for a fourth straight losing season in Jones' debut year but followed that up by going 7-6 in 2014 and posting consecutive 9-4 finishes the last two years.

The next man up will be the fifth head football coach in Knoxville in the last 11 seasons. The Volunteers showed some fight early on in the game, but looked completely lackluster in the second half Saturday night, getting outscored 26-0 in the second half.

What did Jones tell him?

As Tennessee's struggles continued, the criticism of Jones mounted. He was making $4.11 million per year at Tennessee.

Jones ends his career in Knoxville with an overall record of 34-27.

Under Jones, the Vols didn't achieve the success they experienced in the 1990s.

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.

Tennessee's Interm Head Coach Is?

Tennessee, which opened the season ranked 25th, has lost its first six SEC games by an average margin of 21.2 points.

Hoke is in his first year at Tennessee. Hoke has a career coaching record of 78-70 between three jobs with Ball State, San Diego State and MI.
