A great college football coach breaks it down.
Butch Jones is 46. He was born in Saugatuck, MI, which located about 10-12 miles away from my own school district’s southern border.
Both Saugatuck and Holland Public are members of the Ottawa Area Intermediate School District.
Now, I don’t know Jones personally, but there’s a lot to admire about him, even for a Spartan fan like me.
Before he began his coaching career, Jones played college football at Ferris State.
And his rapid ascension up the head coaching ladder also included a successful stint at Central Michigan.
This fall Jones is guiding the charge to rebuild the Tennessee Volunteers football program.
He freely admits that the word “turnaround” has to be prominent in any description of his current task.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting.
