Tennessee RBs coach Jerry Mack send devastating message to Josh Heupel’s before departing

Officially, Jerry Mack is no longer with the Tennessee Volunteers; he left this morning for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Mack spent the previous three seasons as Josh Heupel’s running backs coach.

There were rumors of an offer on Friday, and according to several accounts, it was finalized today.

Mack joined the Tennessee staff in 2021. He was the former head coach of North Carolina Central and the former offensive coordinator at Rice. At Tennessee, Mack helped develop Jabari Small, Jaylen Wright and Dylan Sampson. He also helped land four-star prospects Cam Seldon and Peyton Lewis.

Heupel hasn’t had a lot of staff turnover since arriving in Knoxville. He lost receivers coach Kodi Burns to the NFL in 2021, then saw offensive coordinator Alex Golesh leave to take the South Florida head coaching job in 2022. Both vacancies were filled from within the program. Will Heupel go outside this time? That remains to be seen.

Expect some names to emerge as candidates over the next couple of days.
