"I think Butch Jones has verified everything that we thought he would bring to the team," Hart said Monday in an interview with The Associated Press. "He has galvanized all of our constituents. He's a tireless worker with unlimited energy, it seems. I'm very pleased with where the program is headed."

"Butch likes people," Jones said. "You can't fake that. You either enjoy people or you don't. He thoroughly enjoys people. He likes being around our fans, alumni, high school coaches, lettermen.
