KNOXVILLE (News Sentinel) -

Tennessee will be tweaking its iconic orange and white uniforms in 2013, adding a symbol to reinforce new coach Butch Jones' emphasis on the Vols as a statewide team.

The Vols will wear a state of Tennessee patch above players' names on both the home and road jerseys, Jones confirmed to the News Sentinel on Monday.

Tennessee will also add a checkerboard background to the orange numbers on road uniforms. Jones said the changes would be minor and subtle, but would reinforce his statewide message.

Although Tennessee has never varied much from its traditional colors, the Vols have used different uniforms in the past.
