Report: Butch Jones in discussions with Alabama, Nick Saban for offensive analyst position


Quote
Will Butch Jones be the next person to go through Nick Saban’s career rejuvenation process?

Per Matt Zenitz of AL.com, Jones and Saban have been discussing the possibility of the former Tennessee coach joining the Alabama staff in an offensive analyst position.

Jones, who was fired by Tennessee as its coach in November after five seasons in Knoxville, has a background in offense...

Saban has brought in coaches down on their luck such as Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian in analyst roles during the past few seasons, with both earning a bigger job after a season or two in Tuscaloosa. Jones, who struggled to win over the Tennessee fan base during his five seasons that were mostly mediocre, could use time under Saban’s tutelage to learn and revamp his reputation.

Alabama will have a new offensive coordinator in 2018 in Mike Locksley, who was promoted to the position in January.

Jones isn’t the only former SEC coach who has been rumored for an offensive analyst position with Alabama this offseason, as former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze was seen in Tuscaloosa meeting with Saban and the staff in January. Nothing came of the meetings, as Freeze is still looking to return to football...

SEC Network’s Peter Burns explains why Butch Jones reportedly joining Alabama’s staff is ‘win/win’ situation


Quote
Peter Burns is high on the reported development that former Tennessee coach Butch Jones is expected to join Alabama’s staff.

On Sunday night, The Spun’s Matt Hladik reported that Jones is expected to become an offensive analyst for the Crimson Tide soon. This would be an off-field role for Jones, who was fired in November as Vols coach.

On Monday afternoon, Burns, an SEC Network analyst, used Twitter to write that it will be a “win/win for both Jones and Alabama”
