Jones told the Troy Daily News:
“When I saw this opportunity come available, I spent some time thinking about it, praying about it and talking to my wife about it. Versailles is a great football community. They’ve got a great tradition and they play in a great conference against great competition. I felt like this was an opportunity that may not come along too often, so it was one that I needed to pursue. I felt better and better every time I met with the people from Versailles and felt like it was a place I wanted to be. It was everything I could ask for and an opportunity I wanted to take.”
