Jones began his head coaching career at Central Michigan before moving to Cincinnati and eventually to Tennessee in 2013. That loss moved Tennessee to 0-6 in the conference and 4-6 overall.
Several reports say Tennessee has fired Jones after five seasons as the Vols' head coach.
"We're standing here right now because we haven't won enough", Currie told a full room Sunday night. We wanted our student-athletes to have the best possible chance for success. He led the Vols to a Top 25 finish each of the last two years before the program took a giant step backward this fall. Now Tennessee can officially join rival Florida on the coaching carousel in the pursuit of its next coach.
"An exhaustive search is underway for a person of the highest integrity and character with the skills and vision to propel Tennessee to championships", Currie said. I want to make clear that we are intensely committed to hiring the best coach of Tennessee. "Our coach needs to know what that looks like". The liquidated damages will be paid in monthly installments through February 28, 2021. Because Jones was let go without cause, he will be entitled to be paid a buyout of $8,257,580.00, unless there are any deals between the two sides to agree to a reduced buyout. "Currie said Sunday that the buyout for the entire staff is in the "$13 million range", though that figure could be mitigated depending on when and where Jones and his assistants are able to find work. He's put together three consecutive winning seasons and bowl game victories.
In his time with the Vols, Jones was 6-17 against ranked opponents and 0-7 against Top 5 foes.

Apparently, giving up 50 points to one of the worst teams in the SEC was the final straw for Tennessee. The Vols followed up that Georgia defeat by losing four of their next five games. Two weeks ago, they lost at Kentucky, only their second loss to the Wildcats in the last 33 years.
Injuries played a major role in Jones' demise.
Jones' resume in Tennessee is more impressive than you might expect with the way the fans have run him out of town.
His most notable misstep in that regard came previous year when he referred to his senior class as "champions of life" two days after the Vols were eliminated from East Division championship contention. In 2015, Tennessee lost to Florida, keeping the Vols from Atlanta. "The Jones family has poured their heart and soul into this Tennessee football program and the Knoxville community".
Unfortunately for Jones, his time at Tennessee was also marred by an array of bad losses, including a 24-21 defeat at the hands of SC in 2016 and a 45-34 loss to Vanderbilt later that season. Attendance is at 98,090 so far this year.
However, Jones did help produce nine National Football League draft picks during his Tennessee tenure and his players collected 18 All-SEC awards and 108 received SEC Academic Honor Roll honors. The suit was settled for $2.48 million in July 2016.
