LSU's next opponent, Tennessee, fires its head coach: report

LSU and Tennessee are set to square off on Saturday in Knoxville in what will be the Vols' first game under an interim coach. Tennessee has shown itself incapable of beating virtually any team in the SEC, but it wasn't unreasonable to expect a victory against the Tigers - or at the very least, show some competitiveness.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former head coach at MI, will serve as UT's interim coach for the remainder of the season. "I want to make clear that we are intensely committed to hiring the best coach for Tennessee".

Hoke is in his first year at Tennessee.

Paul Pogba has said that Manchester United and France teammate Anthony Martial is "one of the best players he has ever seen". United's players will welcome Pogba back with open arms following what has been a tough period for the club.

Jones posted a 6-18 record against ranked opponents and a 14-22 mark against teams with winning records.

Hoke took over as the defensive line coach for the Volunteers this season after spending last season as the defensive coordinator at Oregon. The struggles in 2017 come after Jones had led the Vols to consecutive 9-4 seasons, as well as three straight bowl wins.

His final game as head coach was the Vols most lopsided loss to an unranked opponent in AP poll era history. And now, the football program is looking for its fourth head coach in nine years.

UT announced Jones' firing on Sunday following a 50-17 road loss to Missouri a day earlier. Hoke has a career coaching record of 78-70 between three jobs with Ball State, San Diego State and MI. Ish Witter ran for 216 yards and Rountree put up 156 yards.
