Jones' accomplishments and failures at Tennessee

Drew Lock's 31 touchdown passes are the most of any Football Bowl Subdivision player.	 AP

That included a 14-24 record against SEC competition. Tennessee lost to Mizzou last night 50-17.

Several reports say Tennessee has fired Jones after five seasons as the Vols' head coach.

Both coaches will latch on somewhere else during the offseason, but probably not as a head coach, and definitely not at a powerhouse program.

The next man up will be the fifth head football coach in Knoxville in the last 11 seasons.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former head coach at MI, will serve as UT's interim coach for the remainder of the season.

USDA lowers 2018 wheat, soybean carryover from October
Corn and soybean futures rebounded on Friday as traders absorbed a government report projecting larger-than-expected harvests. But an estimated 2.14 million acres will be run through the combines in 2017-breaking the previous record set past year .

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

Jones stabilized a rocky program, but Tennessee's regression in Year 5 has been startling, losing all six SEC games and facing the real possibility of missing a bowl game for the fourth time in eight years. His overall head coaching record is 148-78 and was 11-2 in his first season at MI.

The Butch Jones era is over after five seasons in which he restored Tennessee's program to respectability, only to watch it regress this year after back-to-back nine-win seasons. Because Jones was let go without cause, he will be entitled to be paid a buyout of $8,257,580.00, unless there are any deals between the two sides to agree to a reduced buyout. This search will be my sole focus, and I will be in regular contact with Chancellor (Beverly) Davenport.

The move comes after a blowout loss to Missouri on Saturday.

Tennessee becomes the third SEC coaching vacancy.
