Search firm: Who should Tennessee hire to replace Butch Jones?

For the fourth time in the past decade, Tennessee is in the market for a new coach. Butch Jones is out midway through his fifth season with the Vols, who are 4-6 overall and 0-6 in the SEC this season. Jones finishes 34-27 (14-24 in SEC play) with a pair of nine-win seasons but no SEC East championships.

Jones undoubtedly improved the program, which had bottomed out under Derek Dooley. He brought in heralded recruiting classes and ended an 11-game losing streak to Florida. But he couldn't take the next step and backslid this season.

Vols fans want to make a big splash with Jones' successor. Where does Tennessee turn, and just how good is this job? ESPN's search firm is on the case.

Senior staff writer Chris Low, who has covered Tennessee for more than two decades, and staff writer Alex Scarborough, who has years of experience covering the SEC, join me to break down what's next on Rocky Top.
