KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee interim head coach Brady Hoke says he plans to wear a headset during the Volunteers’ game Saturday with No. 21 LSU (No. 20 College Football Playoff), a change from his usual routine during his Michigan tenure.

Hoke took over as Tennessee’s interim coach after Butch Jones was fired Sunday.

When Hoke didn’t use a headset at Michigan, it became an issue during his tenure there. Fans complained about the absence of a headset, and Hoke often bristled when reporters asked about it. Michigan fired Hoke after a 5-7 season in 2014.

Hoke didn’t detail why he plans to wear a headset this week.

Hoke also said offensive coordinator Larry Scott would leave the coaches’ box Saturday and instead work from the sideline.
