KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – University of Tennessee head football coach Butch Jones and defensive coordinator, John Jancek, have mutually agreed to part ways.
The announcement that Jancek is leaving came Wednesday afternoon.
“John and I had a long discussion this morning and we both came to the conclusion that it was best to part ways,” Jones said.
Jancek has worked for the football program for three years.
“His hard work and dedication to this program played a major role in our back-to-back bowl wins. These decisions are never easy especially for someone I have worked with at three different schools. We feel strongly about the direction our program is headed and will work diligently to find the best person available to lead our defense,” Jones said.
