Tennessee Fires Butch Jones; Hoke Is Interim Coach

Butch Jones out, Brady Hoke takes over at Tennessee: Reports

That was the second longest active streak in the FBS at the time and the longest for a Tennessee team since the Vols went undefeated in 1998 and won the first game of the '99 season. Tennessee has shown itself incapable of beating virtually any team in the SEC, but it wasn't unreasonable to expect a victory against the Tigers - or at the very least, show some competitiveness. Brady Hoke will serve as interim head coach for the rest of season. "I want to make clear that we are intensely committed to hiring the best coach for Tennessee". Jones was in his fifth year as the coach of the Vols.

Jones' five-year record was 35-26 overall and 14-24 in the SEC.

Jones began his head coaching career at Central Michigan before moving to Cincinnati and eventually to Tennessee in 2013.

Both coaches will latch on somewhere else during the offseason, but probably not as a head coach, and definitely not at a powerhouse program. For that reason, I have asked Coach Jones to step down as head football coach.

His final game as head coach was the Vols most lopsided loss to an unranked opponent in AP poll era history.

The storied program was guided by two head coaches for 32 years - John Majors and Phillip Fulmer.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron has experience as an interim coach. The Vols lost to Kentucky two weeks ago and Jones was able to keep his job temporarily by bouncing back with a win over Southern Mississippi, but Saturday's embarrassing 50-17 loss to Missouri was the nail in the coffin.

He also ended the 11-game losing streak to Florida and a 19-game skid against ranked opponents.
