With obvious candidates that would most likely love to jump to the SEC to call plays, why are the Vols taking such a long time with the OC hire?
The reason is because Butch Jones knows this is the most important hire of his career, and quite frankly he better get this one right. Butch is one 8-4 finish away from being unemployed and I think he knows that, so he is taking his time and rightfully so.
Butch feels the pressure from the fan base and could put his swing on it and say “i don’t know why people are feeling that way” all he wants, but he knows that 2017 is the make or break year for him and the Vols.
If he flubs this hire up, he can only blame himself. He does not have an Athletic Director over his shoulder telling him yay or nay. He understands this is the hire for him to get things done his way.
So with this being said , is he taking too long for this OC hire to take place? The answer is a resounding NO!!
