New Tennessee coach Butch Jones will have a new quarterback breaking in his offense this fall. Jones named junior Justin Worley as the Vols' starter for the team's opener against Austin Peay, the team announced.

Worley replaces the departed Tyler Bray, who Worley backed up in each of the last two seasons. Worley has completed 63-of-110 attempts for 738 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions in his Tennessee career. He is the only quarterback with game experience on the roster.

Should Worley struggle, the Vols have three other scholarship signal-callers: Redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman and true freshmen Josh Dobbs and Riley Ferguson.
