Peyton Manning Says He's Still "All In" On Butch Jones, Won't Run For Senate

Butch Jones may be squarely on the hot seat, but Tennessee football legend Peyton Manning is still behind the head coach.

After underachieving in 2016, a rough loss to Florida a few weeks ago, and most recently, a four-point win over a dreadful UMass team, Jones's seat remains on fire.

Peyton Manning joined the 3HL radio show on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, and weighed in on a number of topics.

With regards to Butch Jones, he says that he remains behind Tennessee's head coach.

Manning also weighed in on reports that he may be interested in running for senate to replace retiring Republican Tennessee senator Bob Corker, who finish his political career at the end of 2018. Unfortunately for those who wanted to see Mr. Manning head to Washington, he says he isn't interested in being a politician.

Corker previously told Politico that the former Vols quarterback would "be great in public office" and "nobody in their right mind would consider running against him," but that he didn't see a run very likely for Manning. Of course, if we've learned anything from politics, and football, in recent years, it is that anything is possible.
