Tennessee's Butch Jones Speaks About Relationship With Lil Jon, 'A Great Friend Of The Program'

Southern Cal has Snoop Dogg and Will Ferrell, Ohio State has LeBron James, Iowa has Ashton Kutcher. College football programs having a celebrity fan or two is not an unusual occurrence. 

Tennessee now appears to have Lil Jon. 

The rapper has become a Volunteers' loyalist, with Tennessee playing his hit song, "Turn Down For What," on third downs at Neyland Stadium. 

Today, Tennessee coach Butch Jones spoke of his relationship with the artist.
