Tennessee running back John Kelly doesn’t miss former head coach Butch Jones, judging from comments made to the media Wednesday.
Kelly told the media he wanted “honesty” out of his next coach when asked what he’s looking for. That’s not even a subtle shot at Jones. That’s openly firing the cannons.
Tailback John Kelly on the one characteristic he’s looking for in Tennessee’s next head coach: “Honesty.”

Ouch. It doesn’t get much worse than that. Jones has already been kicked to the curb, and now he has players trying to imply he wasn’t an honest guy.
Jones has also already allegedly been up to some shady stuff since being fired. A report came out shortly after he got canned that he was calling commits and telling them to go elsewhere. I wonder why a player for a coach like that would ever want to value honesty in Jones’ successor?
