Al Wilson replaces Butch Jones on video board

Orange & White Nation

Months after Butch Jones’ tenure as Tennessee head football coach ended, his likeness was removed from the Neyland Stadium video board today. 

Jones was replaced by a photo of former Vols linebacker Al Wilson.

Jones’ picture was first put on the video board in October 2014, one year after his initial hiring. 

All three images will be removed and refreshed. A new photo of General Neyland will be placed on the video board. The other two photos are a mystery at this point.

Each picture is roughly 30 feet by 30 feet, requiring the replacement image to be incredibly high resolution. Crews are using a winched platform suspended from the side of the video board to replace.
