Tennessee Fires Butch Jones; Hoke Is Interim Coach

LSU's next opponent, Tennessee, fires its head coach: report
Butch Jones apparently isn't too interested in keeping the recruiting class he assembled in place at Tennessee.
According to Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman, Tennessee coach Butch Jones has been fired as the Vols head coach and informed his staff of the move on Sunday morning. Jones' firing comes one day after Tennessee (4-6, 0-6) fell 50-17 at Missouri for its fifth loss in its last six games. An inexplicable loss at SC previous year ruined Tennessee's division title hopes.
Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former University of MI head coach, will serve as UT's interim head coach for the last two games.
"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 know Coach Jones will be successful moving forward, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors". But with fan apathy growing and the reality that hanging onto Jones any longer would only make the situation worse, Currie made the decision to cut ties with Jones with regular-season games remaining. The liquidated damages will be paid in monthly installments through February 28, 2021.
Tennessee was not expected to win the SEC East, but they were projected to be competitive in the division with Georgia and Florida.
However, Jones was never able to take UT back to the SEC Championship game. Beginning conference play with a loss to rival Florida was certainly disappointing, but the Vols followed that up by barely beating UMass at home.
