It's pretty safe to say that Butch Jones' days at the helm of Tennessee football are numbered. Lets go ahead and look at the top suitors to take over his throne.

Saturday's 41-0 shutout loss to Georgia could be the nail in the coffin for Butch Jones. Not only was this the Vols worst home loss in 112 years (you read that correctly), but now the school will have to shovel out some serious cash if they want to part ways with a man who is taking the team nowhere fast.

BetOnline just released odds giving you the chance to decide who will hold the Tennessee head coaching position at the start of the 2018-19 season.

Tennessee Head Coach - Start of 2018 Season

Chip Kelly   +325  
Jeff Brohm   +450  
Bobby Petrino   +450  
Mike Norvell   +750  
PJ Fleck   +800  
Bob Stoops   +900  
Tee Martin   +900  
Les Miles   +1000  
Jim Bob Cooter   +1800  
Dan Mullen   +1800  
Brian Kelly   +2500  
Peyton Manning   +10000  
Lane Kiffin   +10000  
Jon Gruden   +2000

With Darren Rovell reporting that a Butch Jones buyout could cost the school something in the range of $9.2 million, this is a band-aid that the Vols are going to have to rip off immediately.

Sooner or later? Who knows, as we have seen many schools handle similar situations in very different manners.

Either way, start browsing social media and picking up on hints, and this might be an easy bet to cash in on if you have the right sources.
