2016 Tennessee coaching staff

Butch Jones has been successful primarily keeping his coaching staff intact during his tenure, and that should pay dividends in 2016.

The biggest change on Tennessee’s 2016 coaching staff is newcomer Bob Shoop. Jones hired Shoop away from Penn State University, replacing former coordinator John Jancek.
