Tennessee finally acknowledges the inevitable, firing football coach Butch Jones

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.

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

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.

Ingle told the Sentinel he will take his visits - definitely to NC State and maybe to Virginia Tech - while also keeping an eye on who the Vols end up hiring to succeed Jones, who finished with a 34-27 (14-24 SEC) record at Tennessee.

Butch Jones apparently isn't too interested in keeping the recruiting class he assembled in place at Tennessee.

Jones won 11 straight games spanning parts of the 2015 and '16 seasons. On Sunday, Butch Jones was sacked as head coach of the Volunteers with two games remaining in a miserable season.

Tennessee's Interm Head Coach Is?

Hoke's first test as the head coach of the Volunteers is this coming Saturday when they host Louisiana State. 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.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron has experience as an interim coach. And now, the football program is looking for its fourth head coach in nine years. After back-to-back 9-4 seasons under Jones, the Volunteers were just 4-6 this year and lost 50-17 at Missouri on Saturday.
