Alabama A&M is eyeing a potential extension for head football coach Anthony Jones. Jones led the Bulldogs to an 8-3 record this year and the school’s fifth appearance in the SWAC championship game.
A&M, despite being picked to finish fourth in the Eastern Division preseason poll, won the Eastern Division title for the fifth time in Jones’ 10 seasons and will play Grambling in the SWAC championship game Saturday at Birmingham’s Legion Field. Kickoff is noon and the game will be televised on ESPNU.
“Coach Jones has turned our program around,” Austin said. “He was told we couldn’t finish where we finished last year and we needed to show significant improvement and we’ve done that. (Huntsville Times)
