    Vol fans have asked for Butch Jones to open up in the past, and it looks like they might be getting their wish.

    Tennessee head coach Butch Jones is the latest of college football coaches to throw jabs at Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh for him taking his team down to IMG Academy in Florida to practice on the campus during his team’s spring break.

    It all started when Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema tweeted this on Wednesday afternoon:

    Not even an hour later, and Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio quoted Bielema’s tweet with another slight troll towards Harbaugh:

    Then Butch Jones got in on the action and threw a little jab of his own:

    Vol fans have wanted Jones to open up and show some more of his personality for years, and this was a welcome change from his usual coach speak and prepared sayings. It’s not a huge troll or an outright call-out like something Lane Kiffin did while at UT, but it’s certainly more brash than Jones is known for being usually.

    Whether the three coaches actually go down to Florida and watch Michigan practice is unknown. Chances are they won’t. But it’s nice to see some coaches have a little fun online.
