Butch Jones out, Brady Hoke takes over at Tennessee

Butch Jones ousted at Tennessee

Jones was hired to coach the Volunteers in December 2012, following the team's three losing seasons under Derek Dooley.

Tennessee has fired Butch Jones after the Volunteers were blown out in a 50-17 loss at Missouri on Saturday, according to reports. But down the stretch the Vols went 3-4 to close out the regular season, with a loss to SC off the bye week that ended chances of making it to the SEC Championship Game.

Brady Hoke, who spent four mostly unsuccessful years as the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines, is getting another shot at running things for a college football team. Currie said he was looking for someone "with the highest integrity and character, with the skills and vision to propel Tennessee to championships".

Hoke has a 78-70 combined record as a head coach, and he went 11-2 and reached the Sugar Bowl in his first year at MI.

Jones entered this season with stable job security in the minds of the administration and Currie, but it was a pivotal season for Jones to continue progressing the program.

Jones was making $4.1 million annually and has a contract that runs through February 28, 2021. Tennessee was picked to win the East previous year but stumbled after a 5-0 start.

Tennessee, which opened the season ranked 25th, has lost its first six SEC games by an average margin of 21.2 points. He'll be owed a buyout in excess of $8 million, although he's required to seek comparable employment to mitigate the damages. The Volunteers now hold the seventh-best recruiting class for 2018, although it will be up to Jones' replacement to hold those recruits for next season.

However, Jones was never able to take UT back to the SEC Championship game.

But he couldn't get the Vols an SEC East title even during an era when rivals Florida and Georgia have been in transition.

Jones' resume in Tennessee is more impressive than you might expect with the way the fans have run him out of town.

"I have tremendous respect for Coach Jones and for (Jones' wife) Barb", Currie said.

Jones' record against each SEC school during his tenure in Knoxville is as follows. He coached three seasons each at Central Michigan and Cincinnati before coming to Tennessee.
