KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Vols head coach Butch Jones has been named the Metro Pulse's 2014 Knoxvillian Of The Year as selected by the publication's readers.
Here's what the Metro Pulse wrote about Jones
Well, that didn't take long. Despite a mediocre--and losing--first season, University of Tennessee head football coach Butch Jones is our readers' choice for Best Knoxvillian already. And we get it--he's a popular guy. That "brick by brick" thing and "Butch, please" caught on like wildfire last season. He's doing a good job recruiting. The Vols (mostly) looked better at the end of the year than at the beginning. If Jones really can turn around the team, and do so quickly, he's set for legendary popularity.
