Back to football, Jones was asked if he enjoyed seeing Lincoln Riley and Oklahoma get a win at AT&T Stadium last weekend? Jones not only took the time to praise Riley, but he also heaped praise upon Baylor head coach Matt Rhule.
"I'm impressed with him. But, boy, I'm impressed with Baylor's coach, too," Jones said. "Those were two outstanding coaches at the stadium this weekend. ... They've done great jobs. ... That was a great chance to see a couple great coaches out there."
But just because they are great college coaches doesn't mean they'll have the same success in the NFL, Jones says.
"College coaches, a head coach coming directly into (to the NFL) head coach, have the lowest percentage rate of success (in the NFL)," Jones said when asked if the league is more accepting of college coaches making the jump to the NFL. "It's pretty obvious they have to get acquainted with personnel. College coaches spend Sunday working. It's one of their biggest workday weeks. In many cases, they aren't familiar with the personnel, and that's a big deal.
