Tennessee beginning work to remove Butch Jones from videoboard

Butch Jones

Tennessee has begun the process of removing a picture of former football head coach Butch Jones from the video board at Neyland Stadium.

Jones spent five seasons at Tennessee after arriving from Cincinnati in 2012. During his time in Knoxville, he led the Volunteers to a 34-27 record and three victories in bowl games. Jones also received the honor of sharing the back of the video board at Neyland Stadium with legendary figures Reggie White and Robert Neyland. Soon, that will no longer be the case.

According to The Times Free Press, work is scheduled to begin to remove Jones’ image. Jones’ space on the video board was once occupied by Philip Fulmer, who led Tennessee to the 1998 national championship.

Jones was fired last November after Tennessee got off to a disappointing 4-6 start. He is now reportedly in talks with Alabama regarding an offensive analyst position.

Maybe new head coach Jeremy Pruitt will end up with his mug on the board, or perhaps another prominent alumnus, such as Peyton Manning.
