Default Butch Jones To Be Paid $35K As Intern At Alabama
In one regard, Butch Jones deserves some credit, as heís likely one of the most compensated interns in America.

The previous face of Tennessee football is the latest former head coach to attempt to rehab his coaching image at the Nick Saban school for coaches that who canít coach good and want to learn to do other stuff good too in Tuscaloosa. When asked about Jonesí role within the program at the start of spring practice, Saban referred to the former Tennessee coach as an intern in the Alabama program.

Now we know what Alabama pays its interns. According to Blake Toppmeyer of USA TODAY, Jones will be paid $35,000 by the Crimson Tide. This information comes following a records request from USA TODAY.

The money Tennessee owes Jones for firing him, over $8 million, will still need to be paid by the school. His buyout at Tennessee will be mitigated from his earnings at Alabama. Tennessee has until early 2021 to pay Jones the full amount it owes him.

Smart move.
He gets to stay in the coaching world while screwing Tennessee. Don't let the 35k a year fool you. Tennessee still owes him 7,965,000

People live on 35K a year and are happy and like RIUTG said, he's still getting heavy paper from what UT owes him. Along side the fact that he's been getting paid heavy money in his years at Tennessee.

I would say Saban, and Jones can not wipe the smile from screwing the Vols.

Saban' interns seem to find their way back in head coaching jobs after short stays in Tuscaloosa. Another advantage for the Tide
