RE: is Joey Jones on the hot seat?
I wouldn't say CJJ's seat is hot but it's damn sure warm. This year he needs to prove he can win at the DI level and winning a bowl game would probably get him a 2-4 year extension to add icing on the cake. Bottom line is, I personally believe he's gone if USA fails to finish with a winning season (and I would definitely be in favor of some "new blood" at the top if that ends up being the case).

If... IF this is CJJ's last season as a USA Jag (or NOT!) I still hope to see his statue near the front entrance of our OCS once his time is done at South Alabama. What he has accomplished up to this point is just absolutely unbelievable. OTOH, the powers that be want a contender every year in every sport and that has been the case for decades.

No timeline yet, but all the plans are in place. The administration is very careful with finances. That's the holdup right now.

Jones does have a lot to hang his hat on. However, I could see the USA admins wanting to search for a higher ceiling than 6-6.

The schedule does him no favors.

Rule of thumb is that you never leave a revenue-sport coach you want to keep into his contract year. This could be interesting if he doesn't re-sign before kickoff.

This is a do or die year for Joey. They'll probably let the season start before any extension happens. He starts hot, the sign something midsession, it goes cold, this could be it for him.

I want Jones to take us to the promise land, but so far he just hasn't shown the consistency needed to turn the corner.

I agree. CJJ was hired to build a competitive DI program from the ground up, which is exactly what he's done - probably in excess of all reasonable initial expectations. I don't remember hearing any admin stating the belief he would take us to the "promised land", just the fact that it'd be sweet, sweet icing on the proverbial cake if he could.

Now USA is ready to kick things into gear to become a serious contender in the G5 landscape and this year (IMO) is his year to audition for the next step, probably the delivery of a winning season is his bar as of this moment.

He's already won any school's audition if they are looking to upgrade or build their program from scratch at ANY level (remember, he also built Birmingham Southern's D-III program from the ground up too) and would probably be quite successful running a consulting agency to help other schools to do the same. Whether he succeeds with USA in its next step or in the former, or another endeavor, CJJ should never have to worry about putting the food on his table from here on out.

RE: is Joey Jones on the hot seat?
I think he's done an overall good job, not to mention that he's a class guy. Class will only get you so far at some levels though, and this is one of them. He needs to kick it up a notch this year and have a winning record in conference. Last year was a bizarre season where we had a couple of the more high profile OOC wins despite being wracked by the injuries, only to have a miserable conference record. This season will be more telling, but either way it goes I believe he still is in a relatively safe position.

His seat is warm and it should be. A minimum of a 4-4 Belt season is a must to keep his job. We've gone 5-11 the last two years 5-3 and 7 wins overall for an extension of more than a year.

The real problem is the way the teams just craters every year as the season progresses.

RE: is Joey Jones on the hot seat?
Having a coach in the last year of his contract will hurt in recruiting. If he has a good year and gets the extension after the season is too late. How many kids go elsewhere because other schools will point out it's his last year. Your almost setting him up to fail if you keep him. Better to give him an extension with a low buyout before the season. then if he does well you give him a better contract with a higher buyout as soon as the season is over which would help in recruiting
