Coaching careerEdit

Jones began his pro coaching career as an assistant coach with the Rhein Fire of NFL Europa. As an assistant, he spent five years with the Fire in two spells, reaching the World Bowl on four occasions. From 1998 to 2000 he was the team's wide receivers coach, with the Rhein winning the league championship in 1998 and 2000.

Jones spent the 2001 season as an assistant with Galen Hall's Orlando Rage of the XFL.

After a one year hiatus, Jones returned to the Fire as offensive coordinator in 2002. The Fire returned to the World Bowl in 2002 and 2003, losing to German rivals Berlin and Frankfurt.

Following Galaxy head coach Doug Graber's resignation following the 2003 season, Jones was named Graber's replacement. In his four seasons as Frankfurt's head coach, Jones guided the team to the World Bowl three times, winning World Bowl XIV in 2006. The league subsequently folded following the 2007 season.

On November 28, 2007, Jones was named head coach of Team Alabama of the All American Football League. However, the league's inaugural season was postponed for financial reasons.

On February 2, 2009, Jones was named the Receivers coach for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
