Jones' accomplishments and failures at Tennessee

With Tennessee looking for a new coach the five most popular names to become the next Vols head coach are below. Jones has already informed his staff of his firing and meet with players around 1 p.m. He has been coaching the defensive line, while holding the title of associate head coach. How clear could it be that Tennessee was completely outmatched and Jones needed to be dismissed?

Jones struggled to win consistently within the SEC, especially against rivals Florida, Georgia and Alabama. For that reason, I have asked Coach Jones to step down as head football coach.

Hoke's first test as the head coach of the Volunteers is this coming Saturday when they host Louisiana State.

Tennessee was 34-27 in five seasons under Jones and 3-0 in bowl games, but the program was clearly in need of new direction as Jones' tactics were not having the kind of impact and success Tennessee had hoped to see by now.

England's Eric Dier satisfied with Germany draw
Higginbotham told Premier League Daily: "I know there have been a lot of players that have dropped out for injury and whatever reason".

Dooley, Johnny Majors, Doug Dickey and Bowden Wyatt are the only Tennessee coaches to endure one-win conference campaigns. Surprisingly, the Vols won both of those games. He can certainly provide a steadying hand, drawing on previous head coaching experience at Ball State, San Diego State and MI. And now, the football program is looking for its fourth head coach in nine years.

This comes one day after the Vols were blown out 50-17 at Missouri and the Vols' fifth loss in their last six games.

Tennessee has never had a winless SEC record in 121 years playing football, but must beat LSU and Vanderbilt to prevent that from happening.
