Not quite sure how this connection happened but Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and head coach of the Tennessee Vols Butch Jones are friends. Jones claims their friendship goes back a couple of years.

The 2-time NBA champion was invited to Vols practice for inspirational purposes.¬†Spoelstra met with the team Wednesday afternoon. The players left wearing T-shirts that read “Championship Wednesday” which featured logos of Tennessee and the Heat.
