UConn assistant coach Ernest Jones resigns

This from the UConn Athletic Communications Department:

“Connecticut assistant football coach Ernest T. Jones has resigned his position effective immediately. The University or the Division of Athletics will have no further comment on the matter as it is personnel related.”

Jones was the running backs coach and also the “player engagement coach” who drew criticism after he was quoted in a Hartford Courant story back in early January, saying “We’re going to make sure (the players) understand that Jesus Christ should be in the center of our huddle. That’s something that is important.”
