Mark your calendars for lunch with Mobile’s own, Coach Joey Jones! Coach Jones will delight attendees with his take on Families and Football, Wednesday June 11, 2014.
Coach Jones launched his football career locally at Murphy High School before playing for Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant at the University of Alabama. He went on to play professionally with the Birmingham Stallions of the USFL then on to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.
Coach Jones moved into the coaching area in the late ‘80’s, coaching for several high schools in Alabama. He was head football coach at Birmingham- Southern from 2006-2007 before being selected USA’s head football coach in 2008. He has coached the USA Jaguar team to a 25-15 mark overall to include the team back-to-back undefeated seasons during its first two seasons. Coach Jones is credited to playing a key role in bringing the University of South Alabama from a school that did not have a football team, to one that competes at the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision level with eligibility to win a Sun Belt Conference championship.
Coach Jones will be the keynote speaker for this luncheon benefiting Family Promise of Coastal Alabama. Lassere’s Catering will be on hand to serve a football festive lunch with the event ending by auctioning a signed football by Coach Jones.
