It appears that a June Jones-Jerry Glanville reunion is in the works.
Glanville is poised to join the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, a Canadian Football League team that recently signed Jones to a three-year extension as head coach. Jones took over an 0-8 Hamilton team that went 6-4 under his direction.
When the deal is finalized, Glanville would fill the void filled after Jeff Reinebold was dismissed as defensive coordinator in mid-season.
Jones was an assistant under Glanville with the Houston Oilers and Atlanta Falcons. They famously reunited in 2005, when Jones, UH’s head coach at the time, hired Glanville as his defensive coordinator. Glanville departed at the end of the 2006 season to become Portland State’s head coach. He left behind a hard-hitting defense that was instrumental in 12-0 regular season in 2007.
