ESPN Reports Ferris Grad, Central Michigan Head Coach Butch Jones To Coach Cincinnati

According to an ESPN report, it now appears Ferris State University graduate, former Bulldog football player and ex offensive coordinator Butch Jones is headed to Cincinnati.

Butch, currently the head coach at Central Michigan University, has reportedly been offered and has accepted the head job at the University of Cincinnati (where he would replace Brian Kelly, who recently accepted the head football coaching job at the University of Notre Dame). Kelly, of course, came to Cincinnati after a stint as head coach at CMU and it appears the Bearcats' Athletics Department is going back to Mount Pleasant to find its new head coach.

Butch has a record of 26-13 in his three seasons as head coach of the Chippewas and his team is 11-2 this year and has earned a trip to the GMAC Bowl to face Troy on Jan. 6.

According to the ESPN article, it is not known whether Jones will coach Cincinnati in its BCS bowl game on Jan. 1 (in the Allstate Sugar Bowl against Florida).
