Numerous reports Sunday morning say Jones was sacked; Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman was the first to report it. GN's Jimmy Hyams says Jones was offered the opportunity to coach the final two games but declined.

After initial reports on Sunday broke the news of the latest coaching change in college football, Tennessee Athletics Director John Currie has now confirmed it through a statement.

Head Coach of the University of Tennessee collegiate football team has been sacked following a dismal year where the team has yet to win a single game in the SEC.

Yet the awful effort showed that the team had quit on Jones or didn't consider him a coach for whom to show its best effort. The loss dropped the Vols to 4-6 on the season and 34-27 under Jones. His overall head coaching record is 148-78 and was 11-2 in his first season at MI.

LSU will take on an interim coach on Saturday night.

As Tennessee moves forward with the "exhaustive search" to replace Butch Jones, the football staff in place will try to maintain relationships with the 2018 recruiting class. Tennessee's average home attendance climbed from 89,965 the year before Jones' arrival to 100,968 last season.

Two weeks ago, the Volunteers lost at Kentucky 29-26, only its second loss to the Wildcats in the past 33 years.

Under Jones, the Vols didn't achieve the success they experienced in the 1990s.

Associate head coach Brady Hoke, who coaches the defensive line, has been named as interim head coach and will finish the season.

Hoke has been a head coach for 12 seasons, making stops at Ball State and San Diego State before arriving in Ann Arbor in 2011.

Hoke is in his first year at Tennessee.
