Few noticed when defensive secondary coach Daronte’ Jones was promoted to assistant head coach the past spring.
Perhaps, it was because UH did not announce Jones’ added role.
And that appears to fit Jones’ style and personality. In Norm Chow’s absence, Jones is handling the head coach’s administrative duties. As always, Jones shares the credit, noting it is a collaborative effort amongst the coaching staff to fill in for Chow. “It’s not going to be a one-man show,” Jones said.
Jones is smart, works hard, is respected, and offers thoughtful observations.
“I was always taught, when I was younger, ‘think before you talk,'” Jones said. “Because once you speak, it’s out there. You can’t take it back.”
