Is June Jones Heading To Coach Arizona State Football Program

The head coaching carousel goes around and around, and candidates are slowly settling into new places. Alabama-Birmingham was the first school to strike, and fans are still waiting on the Kansas Jayhawks to show some of their cards. Will it be Larry Fedora? It's difficult to tell at this point, but another coach making the rounds is possibly settling at another program in KU's category: Arizona State. It's being reported that Jones spent much of the day on Saturday with ASU and he might be a serious option there.

"The former Hawaii head coach has been credited for single-handedly rebuilding SMU's football program over the past three seasons and his team has been bowl-eligible since 2008. However, Jones has never posted phenomenal numbers. His teams have lost at least five games in his time at SMU. Jones is currently the winningest coach in the University of Hawaii's history, where he posted a 76-41 record. He chose to leave the school after feeling promised improvements -- including the campus and training facilities -- were ignored"

It's hard to tell what's serious and what's rumor at this point, but where a head coach candidate spends his interview time is a good piece of info.
