although he has walked into much better situation at his last 2 stops following behind BK..
Imagine he will end up at Tenn someday, maybe now just isn't the right time.
I'm not so sure about that. Cincy was depleted when he got there. Kelly had a team full of seniors in his last year at Cincy so Butch Jones had to do a total rebuild.
Perhaps at CMU, but Cincy was left pretty bare after Kelly had that great year for them.
First year Jones went 4-8, but then got the team back on track.

Tenn fans crack'n me up with some of their quotes. Tee is a Vol legacy so I can see how this one hurts a little more. Tee should e back in Tenn one day, better for Tenn if its later in his career IMO.
If you don't think he won with Kelly's players you are nuts. Typically it takes 5 years to flush all the players out.
They were, but very, very few were contributors in Kelly's final season. In fact, IIRC, they had like 10 new defensive starters in Jones' first year.
He's not just a Vol legacy. He's a demi-god in Knoxville. It would be like if Marcus Allen got into coaching, was good, and was about to come home. You'd be freakin pumped.
We love our former players, we don't idolize them.
"Here are provided seats of meditative joy, where shall rise again the destined reign of Troy." Virgil
He won with Kelly's recruits absolutely, but he also had a young team that he coached up.
The first year they weren't very good and improved a lot after. To me that shows he has a good staff, and a ability to develop talent.
