Tennessee Hires Butch Jones

Butch Jones is the new head football coach at Tennessee. He got a six year $18 million deal to leave Cincinnati after three seasons. The Bearcats went 9-3 and will face Duke in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, NC later this month. Assistant Steve Stripling will serve as interim head coach for that game. Division one coaches openings now exist at Colorado, Wisconsin, Temple, Louisiana Tech and Western Michigan besides Cincinnati.
