Maryland men’s basketball assistant Mike Jones leaving for head coaching job at Old Dominion

Maryland men’s basketball assistant coach Mike Jones will leave to become the next head coach at Old Dominion, his alma mater, a source confirmed to Testudo Times.

David Hall of the Virginian-Pilot was the first to report the news.

Jones will become the fourth Maryland staffer in Kevin Willard’s tenure — only in its second season — to leave for a head coaching job. After last season, Grant Billmeier took over at NJIT, Tony Skinn went to George Mason and director of player personnel Tevon Saddler left for Nicholls State.

This season has been Jones’ only with the Terps, coming to College Park after serving as an assistant at Virginia Tech for two seasons.
