Hire Brian Jones?


Recommended Posts

Sometimes a question of firing, can be answered by asking who else would hire said individual. Brian Jones is the Christian Ponder of Division 1 basketball coaches. I can't think of any reason another Division 1 school would call him in for an interview. Can you?

Good analogy - and the answer is "no"!

Here's a factoid that would probably surprise a lot of people--in terms of tenure, Jones was 88th out of 351 division I men's basketball coaches as of June of 2013: http://d1scourse.typepad.com/blog/2013/06/a-look-at-current-division-i-basketball-coaching-tenures-from-1-to-351.html

And of course, some departures have occurred since then, including Boots and Huus, meaning he's moved up a few more spots.

Not that this has any bearing on anything, other than to prove that college basketball coaches don't typically stay in one place for very long. In that regard, I guess Jones has already beaten the odds.
