Since being fired by Tennessee, coach Butch Jones hasn’t found another position in college football.
However, that could all change soon, if Monday’s news is accurate. According to AL.com, Jones has been in contact with Nick Saban about joining Alabama’s staff.
According to the report, Saban is thinking of bringing Jones on as an offensive analyst for the coming season:
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban has been in contact with former Tennessee coach Butch Jones regarding an offensive analyst position, sources told AL.com. Jones has visited Tuscaloosa and met with Saban in person, per sources.
Jones wouldn’t be the first coach to rehab his image under Saban, as he could follow in the footsteps of Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian and numerous others.
Of course, things could change, but for now, it seems as if there’s mutual interest between the two parties.
