Tennessee Chancellor Jimmy Cheek Addresses Butch Jones Rumors

Tennessee looked into the rumors that head football coach Butch Jones hit offensive lineman Mack Crowder during a summer practice, but according to UT Chancellor Jimmy Cheek, the reports are unfounded. Cheek addressed the rumor this afternoon:

Earlier in the day, Crowder also expressed his support for the program moving forward this season. This is definitely good news for Jones, who didn't need further pressure on top of that related to Tennessee's disappointing start to the 2015 season. The Vols have a chance to land a big win on the field, as they host Georgia this Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
