Radio talk host Colin Cowherd has become the latest to suggest that Tennessee football coach Butch Jones is in over his head.
Cowherd, talking on his Fox Sports Radio show, “The Herd,” on Monday, had strong words for Jones as the Vols came off their 41-0 home loss to Georgia.
“I predicted through four games they would be calling for his head,” Cowherd said.
“Listen, against ranked teams — not even great teams, just against ranked teams — he’s 6-22. He’s a coordinator, maybe a gym teacher. This is one of the best jobs in college football. To me, this is up there with the Michigans, the Clemsons, the Oklahomas. Tennessee, to me, has always been Michigan South. It is a wonderful university and a tremendous fanbase, and Butch Jones is just in over his head. He is not capable of being the CEO of a football program that is the most profitable program in the SEC historically.”
Jones is squarely on the hot seat after his team’s 0-2 start in SEC play. All Things Vol has made the case for a coaching change by pointing out that Tennessee is losing ground in the SEC East, but has also acknowledged that Tennessee could still finish the season with as many as nine wins, which would save Jones’ job.
