Maryland assistant Mike Jones to be next men’s basketball coach at Old Dominion

Maryland men’s basketball assistant coach Mike Jones is set to be named head coach at Old Dominion, people familiar with the hiring process said Thursday.

An introductory news conference is scheduled for 10:45 a.m. Friday, several days after former Old Dominion coach Jeff Jones announced he would be retiring because of health-related issues.

This will be the first college head coaching job for Jones, who spent this past season with the Terrapins under second-year coach Kevin Willard following a two-season stint as an assistant at Virginia Tech. Before that, Jones served as the head coach of Washington-area high school power DeMatha from 2002 through 2021, succeeding Basketball Hall of Famer Morgan Wootten.
