Tennessee coach Butch Jones reportedly fired after blowout loss

After initial reports on Sunday broke the news of the latest coaching change in college football, Tennessee Athletics Director John Currie has now confirmed it through a statement. Hoke is in his first year as Tennessee's defensive line coach. Until Tennessee finds a new head coach, Brady Hoke will take over as interim coach for the rest of the season.

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. He was the interim coach at USC in 2013 and of course was initially the interim coach for LSU after the Tigers let go of Les Miles last season.

Jones posted a 6-18 record against ranked opponents and a 14-22 mark against teams with winning records.

The Butch Jones era featured several euphoric wins but too many heartbreaking losses.

United fell eight points behind rivals Manchester City at the weekend, having suffered defeat against Mourinho's former club. United top brass are anxious Mourinho feels he can't compete with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and will leave.

Jones' squad has been outscored 206-79 in six league games this season.

Jones had three years remaining on his contract, which owed him $4.1 million annually through the 2020 season.

Jones ends his career in Knoxville with an overall record of 34-27. And now, the football program is looking for its fourth head coach in nine years.

"An exhaustive search is underway for a person of the highest integrity and character with the skills and vision to propel Tennessee to championships". I want to make clear that we are intensely committed to hiring the best coach of Tennessee. Including that game, Missouri scored the game's final 33 points, further humiliating a program in distress. Ish Witter ran for 216 yards and Rountree put up 156 yards. The Vols also have never lost eight games in a season.
