Newly-minted Tennessee football coach Butch Jones is scheduled to meet local media for the first time at 2:30 p.m. EST, and the govols247 staff is on hand to provide live updates.

Jones, who spent the past three seasons at the University of Cincinnati, emerged late Thursday afternoon as the frontrunner for the UT job and was hired early Friday morning.

Some of today's updates will be available for all govols247 readers, and some will be available only to our VIP subscribers.

Feel free to join the conversation during Jones' first day as UT's coach.
