Butch Jones ousted at Tennessee

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

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.

ESPN reported that defensive line coach Brady Hoke - a former head coach at Ball State, San Diego State and MI - will serve as the interim for the rest of the season.

Jones inherited a program that had posted three straight losing seasons under coach Derek Dooley. 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.

Tennessee hasn't reached the SEC championship game since 2007 and hasn't won a conference title since its 1998 national championship season.

"We have been fortunate to have coach Jones lead our program for the past five years", Currie said.

"I would like to emphasize how much I appreciate Butch and Barb Jones and their sons, Alex, Adam and Andrew", the statement form Currie reads. Tennessee was picked to win the East past year but stumbled after a 5-0 start.

For the previous 32 years, ESPN noted, the Vols had just two head coaches: John Majors and Phillip Fulmer.

He also was a head coach at Ball State and San Diego State, holding an overall record of 78-70.

"An exhaustive search is underway for a person of the highest integrity and character with the skills and vision to propel Tennessee to championships. I want to make clear that we are intensely committed to hiring the best coach for Tennessee".

Tennessee tied the Missouri game with 1:15 left in the first half on a 19-yard pass from freshman quarterback Will McBride to tight end Ethan Wolf.
