LSU's next opponent, Tennessee, fires its head coach

Jones struggled to win consistently within the SEC, especially against rivals Florida, Georgia and Alabama.

Multiple sources, including a former Vols player, have confirmed to Channel 3 that Butch Jones and the University of Tennessee parted ways Sunday.

Lost six of 10 games so far this season.

Tennessee's Interm Head Coach Is? On Sunday, Butch Jones was sacked as head coach of the Volunteers with two games remaining in a miserable season.

Vols Assistant Coach Brady Hoke will serve as Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the season. He can certainly provide a steadying hand, drawing on previous head coaching experience at Ball State, San Diego State and MI.

Tennessee hosts LSU on Saturday at 7 p.m.at Neyland Stadium.

Butch Jones is out at Tennessee.

Jones signed a four-year contract after not being able to make it out of year one. Because Jones was let go without cause, he will be entitled to be paid a buyout of $8,257,580.00, unless there are any deals between the two sides to agree to a reduced buyout.

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

"An exhaustive search is underway for a person of the highest integrity and character with the skills and vision to propel Tennessee to championships".

If Tennessee wanted to wait until after the season to make a coaching change, the football team's lack of success made that an increasingly hard choice.

The move comes after a blowout loss to Missouri on Saturday.

Tennessee (4-6, 0-6) managed just 285 total yards.
