The Butch Jones era is over after five seasons in which he restored Tennessee's program to respectability, only to watch it regress this year after back-to-back nine-win seasons.

The Volunteers are 0-6 in the Southeastern Conference this season with a 4-6 overall record. For that reason, I have asked Coach Jones to step down as head football coach.

That raised plenty of concerns which were resoundingly confirmed when Georgia came into Knoxville and absolutely steamrolled Jones's team, 41-0.

Tennessee becomes the third SEC coaching vacancy. Jones has already informed his staff of his firing and meet with players around 1 p.m. Jones did things that hadn't been done at Tennessee in a while. both good and bad. "I know Coach Jones will be successful moving forward, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors".

Jones won 11 straight games spanning parts of the 2015 and '16 seasons. A turnaround and return to contention among the top teams in the SEC seemed imminent.

However, Jones was never able to take UT back to the SEC Championship game.

The U.S. intelligence agencies allege that RT served as a tool for the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. He stressed that foreign agent status could be very risky for RT staff and all those who interact with this TV channel.

Associate head coach Brady Hoke, who coaches the defensive line, has been named as interim head coach and will finish the season.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron has experience as an interim coach.

However, Jones did help produce nine National Football League draft picks during his Tennessee tenure and his players collected 18 All-SEC awards and 108 received SEC Academic Honor Roll honors.

Jones was given the chance to coach the Vols' final two regular season games, but declined.

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