Ballad of a Head Coach
Coulda sworn over the Christmas break that Hawaii head coach June Jones said no way he was interested in the SMU gig -- as in, "I'm not gonna hear from them." Two weeks later, and still no one's quite sure whether Jones is leaving paradise for the Park Cities -- not even June Junes, turns out. Reminds me a little of Bob Dylan, as in: "Because something is happening here/But you don't know what it is/Do you, Mister Jones?"
So till he makes his decision, here's a pretty decent recap-timeline of the events of the weekend, during which Jones allegedly came to town with the intention of taking the head coaching job only to waffle after he was so "moved by e-mails and phone calls from Hawaii supporters." Also, video from KGMB-Channel 9, the CBS affiliate based out of Honolulu. --Robert Wilonsky
