Butch Jones' time as Tennessee football coach is over
13 November 2017, 01:23 | Ken Black
Report: Jon Gruden may end up in Tennessee, just not in Knoxville
The report originated with Bruce Feldman of Sports Illustrated. But the Vols were crushed, 45-7.
Tennessee has fired Butch Jones after the Volunteers were blown out in a 50-17 loss at Missouri on Saturday, according to reports. Jones has already informed his staff of his firing and meet with players around 1 p.m.
Yet the awful effort showed that the team had quit on Jones or didn't consider him a coach for whom to show its best effort.
LSU will take on an interim coach on Saturday night. Other than the dreaded "lack of institutional control", what greater sign could there be that a coach needs to be fired?
Tennessee was 34-27 in five seasons under Jones and 3-0 in bowl games, but the program was clearly in need of new direction as Jones' tactics were not having the kind of impact and success Tennessee had hoped to see by now. When was this team going to overtake the competition in the SEC East, finally defeat Alabama, win a conference championship and be in the College Football Playoff discussion?
Vols Assistant Coach Brady Hoke will serve as Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the season.
Hoke has 12 years of experience as a head coach, most recently at MI from 2011-14.
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. But a top Power 5 coaching position is unlikely in the near future. 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.
The storied program was guided by two head coaches for 32 years - John Majors and Phillip Fulmer.

Takeaways from Lions' 38-24 win over the Browns
For the second straight game, the Browns got off to a hot start, and it had a little bit to do with both sides of the ball. DeShone Kizer opened with a 38-yard completion to receiver Sammie Coates up the far sideline to set up a first-and-goal.
