U-Tennessee Sacks Saugatuck's Butch Jones as Grid Coach

U-Tennessee Sacks Saugatuck's Butch Jones as Grid Coach

With Tennessee looking for a new coach the five most popular names to become the next Vols head coach are below.

Sports Illustrated first reported Jones was out.

Tennessee has fired coach Butch Jones with two games left in a regular season in which the Volunteers have gone from ranked to still winless in the Southeastern Conference.

Hoke has 12 years of experience as a head coach, most recently at MI from 2011-14. Tennessee, 4-6 overall and 0-6 in the SEC, in danger of missing a bowl game for the first time since 2013, Jones' first season. His overall head coaching record is 148-78 and was 11-2 in his first season at MI. Missouri (5-5, 2-4) scored five Saturday night and the loss dropped Tennessee into a last-place tie with Vandy in the East. I want to make clear that we are intensely committed to hiring the best coach of Tennessee.

Before the 2017 season, Jones had led Tennessee to two nine-win seasons during the 2015 and 2016 season, respectively.

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

Brady Hoke will take over as interim head coach. One month later, Tennessee lost 29-26 at Kentucky, which represented just the second time the Vols had fallen to the Wildcats in their last 33 meetings. Hoke is in his first year as Tennessee's defensive line coach.

Hoke has been a head coach for 12 seasons, making stops at Ball State and San Diego State before arriving in Ann Arbor in 2011. The Vols haven't won a SEC title since 1998, which was also the year Tennessee won the national championship under coach Philip Fulmer.
