UPDATE: Butch Jones' time as Tennessee football coach is over

Tennessee Vols set to take on potent Missouri offense in their final regular-season road contest of season

That included a 14-24 record against SEC competition.

The news came out Sunday morning that Tennessee has fired head coach Butch Jones, and Hoke will take over for the rest of the year.

Jones won 11 straight games spanning parts of the 2015 and '16 seasons.

Both coaches will latch on somewhere else during the offseason, but probably not as a head coach, and definitely not at a powerhouse program. On Sunday, Butch Jones was sacked as head coach of the Volunteers with two games remaining in a miserable season.

"Coach Brady Hoke has been named interim head coach".

LSU coach Ed Orgeron has experience as an interim coach. The Volunteers showed some fight early on in the game, but looked completely lackluster in the second half Saturday night, getting outscored 26-0 in the second half. The Commodores are also 0-6 and 4-6.

She gave the children eagle toys, telling them, "You have a panda here, we have an eagle in the United States". This is incredible ", she said, according to a pool report.

Jones stabilized a rocky program, but Tennessee's regression in Year 5 has been startling, losing all six SEC games and facing the real possibility of missing a bowl game for the fourth time in eight years.

Jones ends his career in Knoxville with an overall record of 34-27.

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

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

The Tigers amassed a whopping 659 yards of total offense, including a massive 433 yards on the ground.
