Butch Jones was not the first coach in the SEC to be fired, which have left many Tennessee fans scratching their heads.
Right after Florida coach Jim McElwain got the boot Sunday, more Vols fans took to Twitter to start an #EmptyNeyland campaign. Like the name suggests, the campaign is asking fans not to show up to any Tennessee home games at Neyland Stadium until Jones is fired.
Currie is putting players in a position where they have to defend Butch everyday. It’s shameful to do that to these kids. #EmptyNeyland

Let’s add one last record to Butch’s wall of shame this week: lowest attendance in Neyland’s history. #EmptyNeyland

If Butch Jones is the head coach Monday this is what Neyland needs to look like next Saturday night #EmptyNeylandpic.twitter.com/kQWH1gdSsS

They better try harder, because after today fans aren’t going to accept anything less than Gruden, or Chip Kelly!! #EmptyNeyland

It’s unclear how much time Jones has left with Tennessee, but a fifth loss of the year to Kentucky Saturday didn’t help his chances.
