Butch Jones spent three years as an assistant to Nick Saban at Alabama before recently becoming Arkansas State's new head coach. While speaking to ESPNU Radio on Wednesday, Jones talked about the things he learned under Saban...
“It’s really had to narrow that down to one or two things,” Jones said. “I think it’s a cumulative effect. The big thing is, people use the term loosely, the process and following the process but understanding the true definition of how you coach and how you teach the process and what it means. His balance overall as a head coach and all the things that are associated with that job and how he goes about his business… and how he manages. He does an incredible job of balancing everything that’s associated with being a head coach from the alumni, the donors, the media, to player development, to the former players, the coaching staff, support staff, you name it…
“Those three years were remarkable. Last year was one of the best years I’ve ever had in this profession of being a part of a national championship team. But really getting to know him as a coach and an even better person.”
