Tennessee fires Butch Jones in fifth season

Tennessee fires Butch Jones in fifth season

LSU and Tennessee are set to square off on Saturday in Knoxville in what will be the Vols' first game under an interim coach.

Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports reported on Sunday that Jones has informed his staff he is being let go.

Tennessee fired coach Butch Jones on Sunday with two games left in a regular season in which the Volunteers started ranked but are now still winless in the Southeastern Conference.

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. "I know Coach Jones will be successful moving forward, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors".

'For that reason, I have asked Coach Jones to step down'. 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. Tennessee's average home attendance climbed from 89,965 the year before Jones' arrival to 100,968 last season.

Israel says downed Syrian spy drone over Golan Heights
The Golan, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 conflict, has seen spillover violence from the Syrian civil war. Last month, Israel struck three Syrian artillery cannons after errant rocket fire landed in the Israeli Golan Heights.


Ingle told the Sentinel he will take his visits - definitely to NC State and maybe to Virginia Tech - while also keeping an eye on who the Vols end up hiring to succeed Jones, who finished with a 34-27 (14-24 SEC) record at Tennessee.

The Vols' late-season fade in 2016 turned up the heat on Jones.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former head coach at MI, will serve as UT's interim coach for the remainder of the season. Tennessee was picked to win the East previous year but stumbled after a 5-0 start. Hoke has a career coaching record of 78-70 between three jobs with Ball State, San Diego State and MI.

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