Casting ‘Butch Jones: An Individual’

It’s movie time again / Credit: UT Athletics

It was movie casting time again on Sports 180 on Wednesday.

Here’s how it works: When a key figure leaves the Tennessee athletic department, which has happened many times over the last decade at UT, Sports 180 casts the movie of the major players from that time period.

Butch Jones was fired as Tennessee’s head coach on Nov. 12, and with everything that followed leading up to the hire of Jeremy Pruitt, there were plenty of characters to cast for the movie. In fact, the last five weeks led to the suggestion that perhaps this story should be turned into a 10-episode television season.

Thanks for all the suggestions that were sent in during the show on Wednesday, and feel free to send more if you see some important pieces missing that you think belong in the movie.

One quick note: We did not cast Greg Schiano pending legal resolution. He could still end up in the Director’s Cast.

Without further ado, Sports 180 presents the cast for “Butch Jones: An Individual.” (Click the name of the real actor/actress to see an IMDB bio.)
