Coach Jones?

Recommended Posts

I just want something to break regarding this. Sounds like there’s been rumblings for a week or so. I have a feeling though that it will be all smoke and no fire (pun intended).

My post was hasty....I was upset. Coach Jones has represented his position has head coach very well. He made the NCAAs and little program improvement came from that success. UND is a great job, yet tough as well with location and finacial committment to program. All this has been expressed in recent posts. If Coach Jones does in fact depart for a change, I would support his decision as he is doing what he thinks is right for his family and his career...and he deserves that respect. Then I would trust our administration to make a hire that is fitting for future success.

Would it? I put Jones in the same boat as Mussman. 

And you would be wrong again.

I'm not following, at all.  Sorry, but I grew up in the Gunther and Glas eras, where .467 basketball over 13 years doesn't cut it.  We need to expect more, demand more.  Can the guy recruit?  Guards, yes.  Has any coach in the five state area done less with more with said recruits?  Arguably no.   If the gig is $95K a year, does it really make any difference?   

Well said!

Okay, let's not pull a Kennedy and bash him in social media.

Losing Jones would be tough on our program. He is a great recruiter and the players relate to him. He took UND to the next level and deserves to take the step to the  next level. We would miss him but would also wish him well.

Come on you guys - it was meant to be "tongue in cheek" if you want a coach to move on you build him up and gnash your teeth in public - there goes the secret.

Have heard rumors about possible disagreements in fund. Jones wants more $$$ not for him but for program however no $$$ is there.

Raising his salary won’t make him a better coach.

Raising his assistant pool, recruiting budget, and funding to buy home games might.

I just hope he leaves. This is so tiring talking about him. 

Its been 13 years, I just want somebody else, somebody else who can bitch about their low salary and low budget.

Yeah I misread the post thinking it said for him not for program.

Regardless of whether he stays or goes, he is correct in the fact the BBall program needs more funding.  Doesn’t matter who we hire if we don’t try to increase the funding for the program.

Not a defense of Jones, but if fans are going to complain about the state of the program, then the coach has a fair point.

Are we putting the cart before the horse, just like we did with Kennedy.  So we in essence have two lame duck leaders?

So are you still being hasty?  Or do you know something about Coach Jones' status with the program?
