Tennessee fired Butch Jones on Sunday following the Volunteers' embarrassing 50-17 loss at Missouri.

Immediately, the talk in Knoxville turned to Jon Gruden. There was already plenty of Gruden talk happening.

But on Monday, the sports talk airwaves were filled with questions and comments on the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl-winning football coach.

Vegas responded accordingly, adjusting its odds after Jones' inevitable dismissal. The next coach, whether it's Gruden or someone else, will be tasked with making Tennessee an SEC East contender once more.

Gruden's odds have actually increased since last week.

According to updated odds released Monday afternoon, Gruden is the front-runner to land the full-time job at +180 with former OR coach Chip Kelly, current Memphis coach Mike Norvell, former LSU coach Les Miles and current Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen not far behind.

It should be noted that, while Gruden is the front-runner according to the oddsmakers, Norvell jumped from +800 on Friday to +400 Monday afternoon - the biggest move of the bunch.
