Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced new titles for several members of his staff Tuesday at SEC Media Days.
Volunteers tight ends coach Larry Scott, who just joined the staff this offseason, added the title of special teams coordinator.
The former Miami Hurricanes interim head coach has never overseen special teams during his nine-year career as a college coach.
Meanwhile, running backs coach Robert Gillespie earned a promotion to associate head coach of the offense. Gillespie also holds the title of recruiting coordinator at Tennessee.
Finally, Vols linebacker assistant Tommy Thigpen is now the team’s run game defensive coordinator.
