It appears as if the Buffs have swept in and taken Butch Jones.
It looks as if the window to get Butch Jones at Purdue is closing. multiple reports have stated that his scheduled 5:30 local time departure has been delayed. He was scheduled to leave at 7:30pm Indiana/Ohio time, so this is probably not a good sign for the Boilers:

He is not on the plane back, as reported:
A private plane left Cincinnati on Monday morning at 7:58 a.m. Mountain time and arrived at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport near Broomfield at 11 a.m. The aircraft pulled into a private hangar. There is a flight scheduled to leave Rocky Mountain Airport at 5:30 p.m. Monday to go to Cincinnati but Jones is still in Boulder.
