KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – As news of Butch Jones’ firing began to circulate on Twitter, there were numerous reactions. Here are some highlights:
My 1st reaction is not happiness. My thoughts immediately go to the former staff members, assts, & former players of Butch Jones. They had their world turned upside down & careers negatively impacted by probably one of the worst Human beings I’ve encountered I️n a long time.

I really like Butch Jones as a person and I think he’s a good coach. But, it’s genuinely best for both Butch Jones and UT to part ways. It was just too poisonous to continue. Now, both can look for a fresh start.

Somewhere Butch Jones watches these Miami games and wonders why the chain became a thing but the trash can did not.
