Every coach around the country hopes for a quiet, ho-hum offseason devoid of any bombshell news. Tennessee football coach Butch Jones hasn't gotten that, but there haven't been any disasters, either.

Since the end of last year's 5-7 bowl-less season, the Volunteers have welcomed all but one of their 32 February signees. They've said "goodbye" to an important player for the future and "hello" to a recommitted receiver.
