Former Tennessee RB Jalen Hurd's Father Ripped Butch Jones On Facebook

Things keep getting worse for Butch Jones and Tennessee.

Tennessee fell to 3-3 yesterday with a 15-9 loss to South Carolina. All this season, the Vols have struggled offensively, and it just seems like a matter of when, not if, head coach Butch Jones will be fired.

Last season, Tennessee's top offensive player, running back Jalen Hurd, transferred out of the program in midseason, ironically after a loss to South Carolina. Hurd is now at Baylor.

Today, Hurd's stepfather Arthur Smotherman bashed Butch Jones on Facebook, calling his offense predictable and easy to stop.

Smotherman is the second father of a former UT player in recent weeks to call out Jones on social media.

Former quarterback Riley Ferguson's father also voiced his criticism, though he later apologized.
