Butch Jones was set up.
Ethan Wolf (Minster, Ohio/Minster) and his family went to Knoxville, Tenn., on Wednesday to make sure no stone was unturned, no questioned unanswered. They wanted to hear Jones’ vision for Tennessee one last time.
So Wolf, his father, uncle and former high school coach got the new Volunteers coach to talk about rebuilding a program that is almost a decade removed from its days as a consistent SEC and national championship contender. The mantra around Neyland this spring is “brick by brick,” which is Jones’ motto for creating his regime’s foundation one piece at a time.
Which led to the final question of the day, one James Wolf, Ethan’s dad, needed answered.
