Butch Jones' Picture Was On Tennessee's Scoreboard For Way Too Long

The Volunteers can't seem to fully get rid of the former head coach.

Tennessee fired head football coach Butch Jones in early November. It's been two months since then.

During that time, the Volunteers have hired a new head coach. Tennessee hired former Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt after a crazy coaching search that included an offer to Ohio State's Greg Schiano.

Tennessee doesn't appear to have fully gotten rid of Jones, though. He still appears to be featured on-campus.

The back of the Neyland Stadium scoreboard features three prominent Tennessee people. Jones is one of those people, despite the fact that he's been fired.

The photos are big, too. It's very obvious that it's Jones.

This is driving Tennessee fans crazy. Something needs to be done.

A crane had apparently been ordered to get this fixed. It's unclear if it's happened yet or when it will be done.

Get it together, Tennessee.
