Rivals is reporting that Vols Offensive Coordinator Mike DeBord is leaving the University of Tennessee.

2016 was his second season running the plays for Butch Jones’ offense. In 2016, Josh Dobbs set career highs for passing yards (2,946) and touchdowns (27). Tennessee ranked second in points per game in the SEC, trailing only Alabama.

However, DeBord received weekly criticism for his play calling from fans. The fact that DeBord found another job is a big win for Butch Jones and Tennessee.
