LSU and Tennessee are set to square off on Saturday in Knoxville in what will be the Vols' first game under an interim coach.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former head coach at MI, will serve as UT's interim coach for the remainder of the season.

Tennessee becomes the third SEC coaching vacancy.

Jones' five-year record was 35-26 overall and 14-24 in the SEC.

Butch Jones has been on the hot seat for several weeks with Tennessee, and it appears the Vols have finally chose to move in another direction.

All three students hit by the vehicle were Chinese, while the driver told police he rammed them "deliberately", local media said. The driver is believed to be of " Asian origin " with a history of " psychological troubles ", Le Figaro newspaper reported .

The Vols will need an interim head coach and Brady Hoke is the next man up. The Bulldogs may have been even better than most predicted going into the season, while the Gators were also a disappointment that resulted in the firing of head coach Jim McElwain. During his time as head coach, he led Tennessee to a 34-27 record and took the Vols to three-straight bowl games.

Lost six of 10 games so far this season. Surprisingly, the Vols won both of those games. 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.

Hoke has been a head coach for 12 seasons, making stops at Ball State and San Diego State before arriving in Ann Arbor in 2011. And now, the football program is looking for its fourth head coach in nine years.

Tennessee tied the Missouri game with 1:15 left in the first half on a 19-yard pass from freshman quarterback Will McBride to tight end Ethan Wolf.
