Tennessee Volunteers defensive back Nigel Warrior recently shared a photo that would appear to be a subtle jab at coach Butch Jones’ job security.

Warrior shared a shot of a gravestone that reads, “R.I.P BUTCH 2012-2017.”

Not a great sign when one of the team’s best players is openly sharing photos of graffiti that support Butch Jones getting axed from his job. It’s hard to put into words how big of a dumpster fire Tennessee has become. It’s embarrassing for the students and the alumni who proudly wear orange and white.

Jones is one of the worst coaches in all of football, and the Volunteers have gone absolutely nowhere under his leadership. There’s no doubt he’s lost control of the locker room if players are now openly sharing pictures about his firing.

Stick a fork in him and call it a day. The Butch Jones era in Knoxville will be over much sooner than later.
