Tennessee finally acknowledges the inevitable, firing football coach Butch Jones
13 November, 2017, 01:21
The Vols are now set to host LSU on Saturday, Nov. 18. Jones has already informed his staff of his firing and meet with players around 1 p.m. Until Tennessee finds a new head coach, Brady Hoke will take over as interim coach for the rest of the season.
If Tennessee wanted to wait until after the season to make a coaching change, the football team's lack of success made that an increasingly hard choice.
Jones had three years remaining on his contract, which owed him $4.1 million annually through the 2020 season.
The Butch Jones era is over after five seasons in which he restored Tennessee's program to respectability, only to watch it regress this year after back-to-back nine-win seasons.
Dooley, Johnny Majors, Doug Dickey and Bowden Wyatt are the only Tennessee coaches to endure one-win conference campaigns.
Hoke's first test as the head coach of the Volunteers is this coming Saturday when they host Louisiana State. The Vols followed up that Georgia defeat by losing four of their next five games.
Jones ends his career in Knoxville with an overall record of 34-27. 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. The Vols are 0-6 in SEC play after getting blown out by Missouri on Saturday, 50-17. The Vols also have never lost eight games in a season.
