Report: Butch Jones safe for at least another week at Tennessee

Jimmy Hyams says he’ll coach against Southern Miss.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Many thought that a potential loss to Kentucky would be the breaking point for Tennessee. That doesn’t appear to be the case, at least on the outside looking in.

Jimmy Hyams gave us an update this morning. According to him, don’t expect any change today — or this week.

Tennessee has Southern Miss up next. It’s homecoming at Neyland Stadium. You can’t help but wonder what attendance will look like. Everyone knows what’s coming, we just don’t know when. At 3-5, it’s hard to get excited for any game — much less a contest against Southern Miss.

The Vols have four games left on their schedule. Southern Miss, LSU, at Missouri and Vanderbilt. Jones will have to win three of those four to even make a bowl game. At least for now, Currie is content with sitting still for another week.
