Butch Jones' time as Tennessee football coach is over

Adjust Comment Print

Tennessee was not expected to win the SEC East, but they were projected to be competitive in the division with Georgia and Florida.

But losing to Missouri in Columbia, a team that Tennessee defeated 63-37 last season, was all athletic director John Currie could stand and everyone involved with the Vols football program could stand no more.

Dooley, Johnny Majors, Doug Dickey and Bowden Wyatt are the only Tennessee coaches to endure one-win conference campaigns.

The next man up will be the fifth head football coach in Knoxville in the last 11 seasons.

According to ESPN, defensive line coach Brady Hoke will take over as interim coach for the remainder of the season.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron has experience as an interim coach. His overall head coaching record is 148-78 and was 11-2 in his first season at MI.

Hoke is in his first year at Tennessee. Hoke was serving as the defensive line coach at Tennessee and was the head coach at MI before Jim Harbaugh.

Jones ends his time at Tennessee with a 34-27 record overall, and 14-24 in the SEC.

However, Jones did help produce nine National Football League draft picks during his Tennessee tenure and his players collected 18 All-SEC awards and 108 received SEC Academic Honor Roll honors. This search will be my sole focus, and I will be in regular contact with Chancellor (Beverly) Davenport.

Butch's 2016 team scored 473 points and 63 touchdowns, both marks the most in a single season in Tennessee history. Ish Witter ran for 216 yards and Rountree put up 156 yards.
