Head Coach of the University of Tennessee collegiate football team has been sacked following a dismal year where the team has yet to win a single game in the SEC.
After four years at the helm, Butch Jones was given the boot after going 0-6 in their conference and 4-6 overall with two weeks left to play in the season.
‘Unfortunately, we are not where we need to be competitively,’ Tennessee athletic director John Currie said Sunday in a statement.
‘For that reason, I have asked Coach Jones to step down.’
Brady Hoke, the team’s defensive line coach, will fill in as the interim head coach, according to ESPN.
