Barrett Sallee Thinks Butch Jones Should Be Fired

Will he be fired soon?

Butch Jones is on the hot seat.

This is nothing new, except for the fact that after another loss, Jones might actually get the ax this time.

CBS Sports college football expert Barrett Sallee thinks it's time.

After a 15-9 loss to South Carolina in which the Vols were inside the Gamecocks' 10-yard line with 20 seconds left. With the game on the line, poor clock management led to a loss.

That's more than enough for Sallee to say Butch Jones needs to go.

Tennessee, it's time.

It's time to embrace your future, forget about the past and move on from coach Butch Jones. If getting shellacked 41-0 by Georgia two weeks ago at Neyland Stadium wasn't enough to force Jones out during the bye week, Saturday's 15-9 loss to South Carolina should do the trick.

Many believe this loss to South Carolina will be the "nail in the coffin" for Jones, who is 33-24 since taking over the Tennessee program in 2013.
