Tennessee fires coach Butch Jones after blowout loss at Missouri
13 November, 2017, 01:55 | Author: Rachael Silva
Jones is officially under contract through February 28, 2021, and according to the USA Today coaches' contract database, the cost of letting Jones and all of his assistants go at the end of the season could add up to about $13.9 million.
"None of us want to be in this position".
However, Jones was never able to take UT back to the SEC Championship game.
Jones' five-year record was 35-26 overall and 14-24 in the SEC. The Volunteers now hold the seventh-best recruiting class for 2018, although it will be up to Jones' replacement to hold those recruits for next season.
"We expect our coach to have the dynamics that would enable him to lead us to where we know Tennessee football can and should be", Currie said. The team also lost to SC and Kentucky (just their second loss to the Wildcats in 33 years) before getting a non-conference respite against Southern Miss. How clear could it be that Tennessee was completely outmatched and Jones needed to be dismissed?
Apparently, giving up 50 points to one of the worst teams in the SEC was the final straw for Tennessee.
Currie now must begin a coaching search just 7 1/2 months after taking over as Tennessee's athletic director.
As Tennessee's struggles continued, the criticism of Jones mounted.
His most notable misstep in that regard came previous year when he referred to his senior class as "champions of life" two days after the Vols were eliminated from East Division championship contention.

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.
When making the next hire, though, Currie said money will not be an issue.
Jones was head coach at Central Michigan for three years and Cincinnati for three, both times following Brian Kelly, before coming to Tennessee to replace disgraced Derek Dooley, who was 16-21 in three years UT.
Jones' record against each SEC school during his tenure in Knoxville is as follows.
