UT head football coach Butch Jones may have spoken to over 500 Farm Bureau agents at their 64th annual conference held in Franklin, Tenn., on July 26, but for former Rhea County High School and UT standout Mark Holland, the visit was “genuine.”
“I have met coach Jones several times, but Friday was pretty cool because I got some one-on-one quality time with him for about 30 minutes,” Holland said. “You’re really going to like this guy. He really is genuine and you can tell he’s humble and he’s hungry. UT is his dream job and this is where he wants to end up the rest of his life.”
