#Vols’ Butch Jones: This is a special group of guys and a special team. We’ve won 15 of our last 19 games.

Priority No. 1 for #Vols OC search should be a QBs coach, too. Insane that blue-blood program has had a GA coaching QBs for several seasons.

1. How hot is Butch Jones' seat?

Every coach asks for four years to make their mark. In that time -- a full recruiting cycle -- a coach can say confidently that the roster is full of "his guys." So Butch Jones, who enters his fifth season at Tennessee, has had time. His coveted bricks have been laid. And another nine-win season might be enough to get him fired. Another year of missing out on the SEC Championship Game might mean he’s no longer a head coach in the SEC. Finishing 3-4 down the stretch last season with losses to South Carolina and Vanderbilt has Jones firmly on the hot seat in 2017. Beating Nebraska in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl didn't change that. Questions will continue to persist about Jones' future at Tennessee if he can't start next season strong and follow through and win the East for the first time in a decade.

2. What does life after Joshua Dobbs look like?

Placing Tennessee’s failures at Dobbs' feet is a ridiculous notion. He didn’t ask to have his redshirt pulled in consecutive seasons to start his career.

North Carolina defensive backs coach Charlton Warren has emerged as a candidate for the Tennessee football staff.

Vols coach Butch Jones made it clear he wouldn’t stand pat after a 9-4 season and put everyone on notice that changes were coming in Knoxville.

“The university is in the middle of the procurement process to hire a firm to assist with the search for the athletic director,” Simsen said. “We are hoping to wrap up the process soon.”

Simsen said the school will provide a timeline for the AD search after the firm is hired. The university has said new chancellor Beverly Davenport will be leading the search, but she does not start in Knoxville until Feb. 15.

Reports earlier this week indicated the Vols would be hiring former head football coach Phillip Fulmer as AD, and that a deal was “all but done.” SEC Country’s Mike Griffith reported there is interest on Fulmer’s part. But later reports indicated the school would probably not make a hire until later in the spring.

Many have called for Tennessee to hire Chattanooga AD David Blackburn, who used to work in the Vols’ athletic department.

Times Free Press ‏@TimesFreePress 4h4 hours ago

Mark Wiedmer says UT should hire both Phillip Fulmer and David Blackburn http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/sports/columns/story/2017/jan/18/wiedmer-ut-should-hire-both-fulmer-and-blackb/408082/

Quote
So here's an idea that should please both the Fulmer faction and Blackburn backers. Hire them both. Let Fulmer raise the money and make the speeches. Let Blackburn attend to the details and hire coaches, since he's certainly proved adept at that at UTC.

Is that a change Volniacs the region over can believe in? Tough to know. But Blackburn and Fulmer were both a part of some far better Big Orange athletic years than we've seen of late. In this case, going backward to build the future might not be a bad idea.

Here are some of those 5 best basketball-football coaching partnerships in the SEC

5. Tennessee – Butch Jones/Rick Barnes


Quote
Jones record: 80-48 (30-21 at Tennessee)

Barnes record: 629-342 (26-28 at Tennessee)

After an Elite Eight run in 2008, Texas failed to get past the first weekend of the tourney in Barnes’ final 7 seasons.

With the talent Jones accumulated, 9-win seasons each of the past two years were underwhelming.

Sterling, a 3-star defensive end, was first announced as having sent his National Letter of Intent to the Gamecocks — he had not. Less than an hour later, Tennessee put his name on their list of received NLI’s but, once again, he hadn’t sent it to them.

The two incidents happened about an hour apart before his 9 a.m. scheduled signing event. Ultimately, he did end up with the Gamecocks. Out of all of that, he at least got some entertainment out of it.

“Somebody showed me a Twitter post about it. It’s funny. I laughed when I seen it,” Sterling said. “I had nothing to do with that. I have no idea.”

Tennessee receiver Jauan Jennings went from being a Vols’ football hero last season, to embarrassing the program on national signing day.

That may seem like a harsh assessment, but when you’re the team’s leading returning receiver and arguably one of the most talented skill position players in the SEC, the stakes are raised.

Jennings is the most dynamic player on the Tennessee roster at this time. His rise to great heights last season bordered on historic proportion, with fans and NFL scouts taking notice.

Jennings’ booking on Wednesday morning on misdemeanor drug possession charges was such a disappointment for Tennessee football.

The timing couldn’t have been much worse. Signing day is all about the future of the football program, the hope that new players coming in will represent Tennessee on and off the field in the best of ways.

Yes, the Josh Dobbs-inspired  “Champions of Life” phrase that Coach Butch Jones famously used (and social media critics misconstrued) last season comes to mind.

Jones pointed to his players during UT’s spectacular signing day live-streamed special as “the greatest ambassadors” for the program during the recruiting process.

“Coaches sell the vision,” Jones said, “and players sell reality.”

The reality is that Jennings was at the heart of the Vols’ biggest wins last season and he could make or break the 2017 season, as well.

It was Jennings’ 67-yard catch and TD run that broke Florida’s back in a 38-28 win.

It was Jennings’ memorable 43-yard Hail Mary catch that enabled Tennessee to beat Georgia, 34-31, in Sanford Stadium.

What is next for Jennings? Is he the next Peerless Price? Or the next James Banks?

Parents don’t want to have to say “no” to their child when they reach for an orange and white No. 15 jersey at the store.

Tennessee fans want to embrace the story of Jennings, an in-state recruit from Blackman High School in Murfreesboro, the son of Angela Holman and Bennie Jennings, as it reads in his bio.

Surely Jennings thought of his family and considered his legacy when was “temporarily handcuffed and detained in the back of a police cruiser” after being pulled over for driving the wrong way on a one-way street.

Just 19 years old, Jennings is at a crossroads of sorts, and the spotlight will only grow brighter moving forward.

The good news for Jennings is he has a strong support network, most notably newly hired strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullickson.

The reason Tennessee felt this former NFL strength and conditioning coach was worth an eye-popping $375,0000 a year was because of his experience dealing with athletes.

...

Everything changes when a player runs through the “T” at Tennessee, a point Jones spoke to on Wednesday when he said some of his players let him know when a recruit doesn’t fit the culture he’s building.

So what happens when a current player doesn’t fit the culture?

At this time, UT spokesman Ryan Robinson says: “We are aware of the report and will have no further comment.”


Jennings, according to multiple sources within the team, has also been a hard player for the Tennessee coaching staff to manage his first two seasons in Knoxville.

Can this embarrassing arrest trigger a change in Jennings, and help him grow into a mature team leader?

Both Jennings’ NFL prospects and the Vols’ championship hopes may depend upon it.

Lou Holtz once said of Derek Watson, his All-SEC, 1,000-yard rusher at South Carolina in 2000, that “one day he’ll be filling up stadiums, or sweeping them out.”

The same can be said of Jennings.

Tennessee nickelback Rashaan Gaulden is expected to miss spring football drills because of a surgical shoulder procedure.

Vols are looking at using more 4-3 looks next season, as opposed to the 4-2-5, but Gaulden is projected to be one of the two starting safeties.

Micah Abernathy, who started at safety alongside Todd Kelly Jr., is also expected to be limited this spring because of shoulder surgery.

SEC Country also broke the news of defensive tackles Kendal Vickers and Kyle Phillips being limited or out for spring drills with injuries.

Tennessee will being spring practice around the third week of March, culminating with the April 22 Orange and White Game at Neyland Stadium.

Don Mahoney was at Butch Jones’ side as an assistant coach for 10 years, but on Tuesday the news came out that Tennessee would not be retain him.

Did the long-time Jones assistant get a raw deal, or was this the sort of necessary change Tennessee football needed to step up?

Mahoney’s replacement, Walt Wells, has never coached at a Power 5 school.

Meanwhile, a former NFL, Tennessee, Georgia and Oklahoma State offensive line coach came available but did not seem to enter the discussion.

Mahoney, it’s worth nothing, was the primary recruiter for the No. 1-ranked player in the nation, Trey Smith, who he successfully brought to Tennessee in this signing class.

The staff changes are likely over, but there’s one assistant who still might be sweating it out.

Jimmy Hyams ‏@JimmyHyams Feb 10

Walt Wells, recently promoted to OL coach at UT, was arrested
for DUI on Feb. 4, 2016, hours after UT’s national signing day celebration

Wells was sentenced to be confined in Detention Facility for 6 months but that was suspended for time served, which was 24 hours.

UT spokesman Ryan Robinson said UT coach Jones was aware of the Wells’ DUI arrest when it occurred.

Robinson said Wells was suspended with pay for 2 weeks, attended counseling and has exhibited `model behavior’ since then.

Coach Jones `felt comfortable moving forward with Wells as the offensive line coach,' Robinson said.

Wes Rucker: Vols need big NFL Draft for perception

Vols need to put their NFL Draft stock back on its proper axis


Quote
Suggesting that any football coach not named Urban Meyer, Nick Saban or Dabo Swinney is hot-seat-proof is silly, and suggesting that Tennessee’s Butch Jones is hot-seat-proof is really silly. We all know what could happen if Tennessee wins fewer than eight games next season. We all know that would, at the very least, warm up the cushion for Jones heading into the 2018 season.

Barring a total collapse, though, Tennessee and Jones are financially wed to each other for the next couple of years. You can kick and scream all you want, but that won’t change the fact that the Vols have their coach for the next couple of years barring a total disaster.

We know Jones and his staff can recruit. Look at the first few classes they brought to Tennessee. Those classes were the backbone of a group that brought the Vols back to respectability on the national scene. That group won three consecutive bowl games and finished the past two seasons in the Associated Press top-25 poll. That’s not the kind of thing that’ll make anyone a Tennessee Legend — especially when you should have won the SEC Eastern Division in 2016 and didn’t —

Lying under the surface the past couple of years, though, has been the Vols’ uncharacteristic cold streak in the NFL Draft.

After having at least one player — and usually multiple players — drafted between 1964-2014, the Vols went through all seven rounds of the past two drafts without seeing any of their players taken off the board.

Ouch. That stings.

Could any of that be pinned of Jones and his staff? No. Not really.

Dobbs stands by coach Butch Jones’ “Championship of Life” speech. “I know where Coach Jones is coming from … His basic sentiment is, of course people are going to remember wins and losses, but at the end of the day, in 40 years, they’re not gonna remember what the exact score of the game was or how many yards you threw for. But they will remember what type of person you were and what type of character you had and how you carried yourself on and off the field and what type of competitor you were. That’s what he’s getting at. In order to build a program of high character and of competitiveness, you need players that exemplify that; that take care of business, not only on the field but off the field — in the classroom, in the community — hold themselves to a high standard and then are also competitors on the field.”

Volunteers supporters who are upset with the direction of the program need to get some perspective. “Fans are oblivious to some things. You have to take their opinion with a grain of salt. I definitely enjoyed being coached by Coach Jones, and the impact he was able to have on me, and the passion that he brings every day to the game of football and the program at the University of Tennessee.”

As Austin Appleby prepared to make his first SEC start, Tennessee fans prepared for Appleby’s funeral.

The Rocky Top faithful were so sure their Vols would crush Appleby that they attempted to crowdsource money for post-mortem transportation, embalming and other services.

“That was fun,” Appleby told SEC Country last week. “That’s what it’s all about. If people are talking to you, if people aren’t hating on you, you really aren’t doing anything worthwhile.”

Appleby and the Gators were excellent for a half, but allowed the Volunteers to score 38 consecutive points in a disappointing finish. It was a microcosm of Appleby’s season. The fifth-year graduate transfer from Purdue had plenty of memorable moments — the biggest being a 98-yard game-winning touchdown pass at LSU — but the Florida passing attack sputtered at inopportune times.

He’s not at the NFL combine this week...

North Canton, Ohio, native has been working out with former Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs and a slew of other ex-SEC players at IMG.

Departing Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs made a lot of wrongs right for the Vols’ offensive line the past three seasons, sidestepping would be sacks and escaping pressure.

That’s a trend expected to reverse itself under new offensive coordinator Larry Scott and first-year offensive line coach Walt Wells starting with the opening of spring drills next Tuesday.

New strength and conditioning coach Rock Gullikson’s influence in the offseason conditioning and training will be most reflected up front.

With a yet-to-be-determined new quarterback under center and last year’s leading rusher and receiver moved on, Tennessee’s experienced line is expected to be the strength of the offense.

It was a beat-up and maligned group last season...

How many games does Butch need to win to stay off hot seat next year? Has had weird career there so far it seems......
With his contract like it is and our recent sucking post Fulmer, the PTB wil not pull the trigger on him barring a crazy NCAA thing or a total collapse. But presure will build more every year he doesn't at least win the East. But I think he's safe at least 2 to 3 more years.
The rebuild he's done has been pretty good all things considered. Last year was more injury than anything else. We had something like 16 to 18 starters play in 3 or less games last year. For some reason that got over looked by some fans but more especially the media. But he made enemies with the media when he restricted access to some of the "entitled" members of the media that have had run of the place for years and years.

If Tennessee doesn't cut him lose completely, they're trash.  This thug is on film assaulting another student over headphones.

Thug? LOL ok man. That video showed the lead up? That video showed the entire scenario?
I'l tell you what's trash. It's people who see a small part of something and jump to conclusion and bash someone they don't know and have never met and know NOTHING about. But because they play a darned game for a team they happen to not like they trash the kid. I mean you're right. To think 2 high school kids fighting over something small. Next thing you know they will probably drink underage... they should be ruined for life.

So, it's not him?

...and I don't care what led up to it.  If it's him, he's gone.  No excuse

If every kid who got into a fight in high school was to get kicked off of their college team, there wouldn't be enough players to field a team for any school.

Maybe he has a 5 star heart and can still be a champion of life.
