Vols fans react to Butch Jones' firing
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. —
Because of the rampant speculation the past year or so, the news of the firing of Butch Jones didn't come as a shock to many Vols fans.
It's been talked about for weeks now.
NewsChannel 9 spoke to some die-hard Vols fans about the end of an era for Jones' UT career.
"I was a little bit relieved. He should have gotten fired probably several games ago but not sure the reason why he's been around this long," said Rob Wood.
There was also a common denominator in who they wanted to see take Jones' place.
"Hopefully it's (Jon) Gruden. That's everybody's big name on the list but I think Gruden would be a good fit for the Vols," said Wood,
Those fans say they want to see a new offense, new defensive coordinator and new recruits to put the VOLS back on top.
