Tennessee coach Butch Jones reportedly fired after blowout loss

The Tennessee Volunteers officially fired head coach Butch Jones Sunday, and the move will likely have ramifications on the Vols recruiting class for next season.

Jones, 49, was 34-27 in five seasons at Tennessee. The Vols are 0-6 in SEC play after getting blown out by Missouri on Saturday, 50-17. 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.

Brady Hoke will take over as interim head coach.

Tennessee hired Jones away from Cincinnati to replace Derek Dooley following the 2012 season.

Jones had three years remaining on his contract, which owed him $4.1 million annually through the 2020 season.
