Report: Joe Jones named new head coach at BU

Boston University has hired Joe Jones, the former associate head coach of the Newton University(Boston College) Eagles, as their next head coach. This is being reported by Jeff Goodman of Jones just finished his first season in Newton after spending the previous seven at Columbia where he posted a 86-108 record.

Jones will replace Pat Chambers who bailed on BU earlier this month to become the next head coach of Penn State. It was reported that interim coach Brian Daly was to interview today. Chmabers said in an interview that if Daly was not given the position then he would be joining Chambers and director of basketball operations Adam Fisher in Happy Valley.

Other names that were being thrown out there around the job were Al Skinner, Daly, Jim Ferry, and Walter McCarty? Wait what? why did Pitino even throw his name out there? Then again I Love Waltah! just not as our next coach. Jones doesn't have a spectacular record as a head coach but it will be interesting to see how he does with a team that Chambers built for success.
