It's an underwhelming hire but pay close attention to who Jones hires as his DC. That could be his key move, as it was for Doolander.

Not an impressive hire.
Jones hasn't really done much after taking over for Brian Kelly.
Honestly, I think UT will be in another coaching search 3 years from now.

UT should continue their coaching search for the next 3 years, maybe by then, they will have someone they want.

UT told Butch Jones to rent and not buy and his athletic office is on wheels.

Hes 50-27 as a HC
Won back to back Big East Coach of the year awards
Finished 1st in his division 4 years, 2nd two times and last once
Also he is 2-1 vs. Charlie Strong
Cons
Not sure of his recruiting ability
Has followed Brian Kelly and hasn't really had to "build" anything before

And oh yea, a lot better than Dooley!
I don't know much about Butch Jones. I do know he is highly regarded as a coach and as a person. I know the Vol fans wanted some big name coach. This guy has an excellent chance and I hope he can stay around long enough to get a defense together. Dooley had your offense playing great. It seems better for you in recruiting to actually have a coach. Kids like knowing a name.

Actually he only coached under Kelly for 1 season. He did replace Kelly at CMU after being an assistant at WVU and then replaced him at Cinci. He's more of a Rich Rod guy than a Kelly guy

I thought that after hearing it inside a busy store. It sounded like Butch Davis to me. I thought, why did they just not go with Petrino.
I checked this out on here because I thought the board would be full of info and commentary. Then it turns out to be Jones. What a let down for me!

Not as bad of a hire as people think. He's not a Charlie Strong type hire but this guy has a proven track record and has won everywhere he's been. He's one of the best hires (behind Petrino) that they could've made given who was available.
