For the second time this season, former Tennessee coach Butch Jones is being linked to an open Power 5 job. This time it’s Arkansas as the Razorbacks continue to look for a replacement for Chad Morris.

“Butch Jones is a guy being considered at Arkansas,” Steven Godfrey, a Senior Writer for Banner Society, said on The Midday 180 in Nashville. “It’s a name being tossed around by CAA. For a guy being “pushed,” he is the only one with actual wins in the SEC.”

Jones was mentioned for the open Rutgers job, but reportedly pulled his name from consideration about a week ago. He’s in his second season as an analyst at Alabama.

Jones was 34-27 during four-plus seasons at Tennessee, despite a 4-6 start to 2017 that saw the Volunteers eventually go 0-8 in SEC play.

At Central Michigan, Jones was 27-13 from 2007-2009 — including an 11-2 mark in his final season there —before a 23-14 run at Cincinnati that saw him go just 4-8 in 2010 before a 10-3 record in 2011 and 9-3 in 2012 before being hired for the Volunteers’ post before the Bearcats’ appearance in the Belk Bowl.
