During his time coaching, he served as the interim director of the Selma Recreation Department. After his time at Meadowview, he coached at Marengo County in 2017 before coming to Morgan. Jones says he is excited to be back as a head coach and AD but will miss what he considers his home at Morgan Academy.

“I am looking forward to going to Wilcox Academy. It is a great school and I can’t wait to get started. I appreciate them for hiring me. I am excited to be a head football coach and Athletic Director again,” Jones said. “I will truly miss Morgan, it’s like home to me. I graduated from there along with my brother and sister. I’m thankful for the five years I coached there and wish them all the best. I will definitely miss the kids! I hope that I made a difference in their lives and led them in a godly way.”
