Vols hire Cincinnati’s Jones as next coach

December 7th, 2012 - By Steve James

Tennessee has hired Cincinnati’s Butch Jones as its next football coach.

 

Jones has a 50-27 record in six seasons as a head coach. He went 27-13 in three seasons at Central Michigan and has gone 23-14 at Cincinnati the last three years. He followed Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly at each of those stops.

 

At Tennessee, the 44-year-old Jones will succeed Derek Dooley, who was fired Nov. 18 after going 15-21 in three years. Dooley posted a losing record in each of his three seasons at Tennessee, the first time since 1909-11 the Volunteers have finished below .500 three straight years.

 

On Star 95.1 this afternoon at 1:30 we’ll bring you live coverage of the press conference announcing new University of Tennessee head coach Butch Jones.

 

Bob Kesling will anchor the coverage of the press conference held at Neyland Stadium, coverage and will have an exclusive one-on-one interview with Coach Jones at the end of the press conference.
