Matthew Butler isn’t new to this.
His freshman season at Tennessee wasn’t even over when the coach he signed to play for, Butch Jones, was fired.
Three years later, Butler watched underclassmen on the Vols roster deal with the same thing he went through his first season on Rocky Top.
“Let’s just be real here: I think that everybody, I don’t even think it would be an exaggeration to say that everybody, (but) I can only speak for my class, the 2017 class, the last class under Butch, has considered leaving,” Butler said. “Obviously.”
I’m not saying it’s not true. Just that it’s a helluva thing to say.
