This offseason has seemingly been one of indecision for former Tennessee coach Butch Jones.

After spending the 2018 season as an analyst on Nick Saban’s Alabama staff, it was reported that he was likely heading to Maryland to join former Alabama OC Mike Locksley’s coaching staff.

Now, it appears that may not be the case after all. Per a report from, Jones is now expected to remain at Alabama:

Sources at Maryland tell FootballScoop Butch Jones plans to remain at Alabama. The former Tennessee head coach spent this past season as an analyst for Nick Saban.

With all the staff turnover in Tuscaloosa, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Jones land an on-field role for the 2019 season. He has experience as a wide receiver, running backs and tight ends coach at various stops throughout his career.

Saban has yet to make an official announcement, but it looks like Jones could be heading back to Tuscaloosa soon.
