BREAKING: Tennessee Hires Butch Jones as Head Coach



After being rejected by Super Bowl-winning coach Jon Gruden and Louisville head coach Charlie Strong, it appears the Vols have found their new head coach in Cincinnati Bearcat head man Butch Jones.


Jones, as you’ll remember, was a candidate for the Kentucky job and was strongly rumored at one point to have accepted the position. He also publicly denied a report he’d taken the Colorado head coaching position.


Jones will replace Derek Dooley, son of legendary coach Vince Dooley, who was fired after going an abysmal 15-21 after three seasons.

About Josh White

I'm a lifelong, die-hard Kentucky fan who loves UK sports as much as I hate UL and everything they stand for. I'd rather lose with the Boys in Blue than win with Cardinal red. That pretty much sums me up.
