University of Tennessee Athletic Director John Currie says an "exhaustive search" will be launched to find the school's next head football coach.

Former coach Butch Jones was fired Sunday morning, after a 50-17 loss to Missouri on Veterans Day and a lackluster 2017 season.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke has been named to lead the team through the final two games of the regular season.

It's finally here--the release of the Big Ears Festival's 2018 lineup. Festival attendees will once again be transported to another world, filled with music, film, and art that's refreshing to the ears, the eyes, and the mind. The festival will, once again, take place over the span of four days (March 22-25) in most of the same downtown Knoxville venues as last year's event.  What is different is the focus on jazz and its subgenres, says Big Ears artistic director Ashley Capps.
