is Joey Jones on the hot seat?
An article in the paper recently said he was on the last year of his contract with no extension. that can not be good for recruiting.

RE: is Joey Jones on the hot seat?
I don't think he's really on the hot seat. The article you are probably referring to was mostly about his contract expiring this year. They have not discussed an extension at this point, but our AD never discusses those publically.

Joey started this program from scratch, calling coaches from the steps of the Mitchell Center asking them to join his staff. Just 9 years ago, we had a bunch of high school guys that couldn't get into any other college program (for the most part). We didn't have a weight room. We didn't have practice fields. We didn't even have coaches offices.

We now have one of the nicest football field houses in the conference. 2 full size practice fields with brand new turf. We'll soon be finished with our Indoor Prectice facility and a stadium is inevitable. His impact has been huge off the field.

On the field, he has the best conference wins over the past couple years. He has also took us to 2 bowl games (and was a play away from a third) in our short tenure in FBS.

He did all this without a real recruiting advantage. We had no history, no stadium, and no generations of alumni (school is barely 50 years old).

I think it's unrealistic to expect much more from him at this point. I think this year will be big, however. Last year's season was tarnished by the worst injury epedimic I've ever seen. He has done a fantastic job building the program, but he now needs to show he can take it to the next level. I still have confidence in him.

I wouldn't necessarily say he's on a hot seat but I don't blame south al brass for not immediately making a move to renegotiate and resign ASAP. As much as he has done (being the first coach, getting the program to its first 2 bowls, and scoring victories over a ranked SDSU & Mississippi state) the fact is he's only managed two 6-7 seasons at best and not gotten USA in serious conference title contention. If he can't make some serious strides this season I couldn't blame Jaguar administration if they wanted to cut him lose and start fresh

RE: is Joey Jones on the hot seat?
Timeline as far as I know it:

In 2009 Joey Jones got a 5 year contract, to run the 2009-2013 seasons.
In 2011 he got a contract extension until February 25, 2016.
In 2014 following the it was extended until the end of March 2017.
In 2015 he received an extension of one year until March 2018.

Coach Jones has done a lot of good for our program; he has made some mistakes; but more than that has hit bad luck. Injuries the last two years, especially last year, has been unfortunate. We have some ideas on what caused that and made some changes (more than just hiring a new strength coach). I like Coach Jones and hopes he's able to break through and make more noise in the Sun Belt.

His seat maybe a little warm but win 7 games this year and it gets cooler.

Jones is a very good coach. When he gets all the facilities he needs, he'll turn the corner with USA.

Heck, he went 17-0 in the programs first two seasons of existence, beating established FCS teams like UC-Davis, Nicholls State, and Lamar. And he's already beaten and SEC team, been to two bowl games, and has a win over a Top 25 team. That's impressive despite the 6-6 records and the initial circumstances.

Honestly USA might be 1-6 after the ULM game. You might see him canned after ULM beats USA.
The only true for sure winnable game is Alabama AM.

It's possible. Unlikely, but possible.

I think the one thing most Jag fans want to see this year is for us to win the games we are supposed to win, and maybe a couple we're not. We also want to win our share of the toss up games. A loss to ULM and Idaho/Troy, and I don't see Joey getting the extension.

I didn't realize that schedule first 7 games . I mean ULM is a toss up but back to back money games , Louisiana Tech is good, of Idaho is good and Troy. I mean that's not the easiest way to start a season. ULM Gets a bye week the last week of season. lol I mean if we make a Bowl (I know it's going to be hard) thats great but if we don't just means our season is over.
