Ole Miss hires DB coach

Among the things that happened while driving from Tupelo to Oxford are a season-opening football game moved to a Thursday at the awful kick time of 8:15 and the hiring of a defensive backs coach.

The move to Thursday of the Ole Miss-Vanderbilt game, now set for Aug. 29, had long been in the works.

The hiring of Jason Jones, who coached cornerbacks for the last six years at Oklahoma State, was reported by Jimmie Tramel of the Tulsa World.

Here’s Jones’ bio.

It appears that Hugh Freeze has replaced experience with experience as Jones follows Wesley McGriff. Though McGriff had been in the game a while longer, Jones is not a newcomer to BCS-level football.

My guess is Jones will be pretty good on the recruiting trail. I would think that would have been high on Freeze’s list.

  • My sources are telling me that “the bag man” slipped up and now there is just cause to delve further into the “meat market” and it’s manipulation of the “outsourcing” of the compliance office.

    • You do not sign the class that Ole Miss signed without drawing the attention of the NCAA. The coaches knew that. To my knowledge, not made up sources, only one school is under official investigation in Mississippi. That school is not Ole Miss. What do your sources say will happen in that real investigation?

        Dagg does not answer questions. He is just a poor little sad boy who comes on here trying to spread his lies because he is totally obsessed with Ole Miss. Ole Miss owns him. Not a day goes by when he is not thinking about Ole Miss
