Honestly, if this isn’t a perfect match…
Former Tennessee head coach Butch Jones has accepted a position on Mike Locksley’s staff at Maryland, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to InsideMDSports.
Jones, who spent last year as an offensive analyst at Alabama, is expected to coach tight ends and serve as an associate head coach at Maryland. The 50-year old Michigan native, who also served as head coach at Cincinnati and Western Michigan, formed a relationship with Locksley during their year together under Nick Saban and will now work for him in his first coaching position since he was let go at Tennessee in 2017.
If there’s anyone out there who can take players’ minds off an unspeakable tragedy like McNair’s death, it’s Booch. A year of five-star hearts and trash cans, and those kids will be yearning for Durkin’s return.
I’ll take my tongue out of my cheek now.
