Butch Jones has done nothing but shop for other jobs for the past two years and after the flirtations with the likes of Kentucky, Purdue, Colorado and now Tennessee it's abundantly clear Butch is looking for a way out of town. I can understand part of the reason why he feels that way and I don't harbor any ill will towards him but it's gotten to the point where it's probably in UC's best interest to turn the page.
How could you possibly have the guy out there asking fans and recruits to buy into the program when it's obvious he is looking to cash out?
If he doesn't end up at Tennessee tomorrow, I am not sure how he would handle it. Not only has he burned the bridge here, he's nuked it. What gets me is the lying and charade he put on about the Colorado job. He was so torn, etc. What a crock.
The irony, I would say about 95% of Tennessee fans want nothing to do with him, they are ready to riot if he's hired.
