Roughnecks June Jones Confirms He’ll Return to the XFL In 2022 if Offered a Job

In an interview on CBS Radio’s After Hours with Amy Lawrence, Houston Roughnecks HC June Jone confirms he would return as a head coach in the XFL if the league offered him another job.

He also had this to say about the league:

“They did everything right. Everything from the drafting to development of the teams, the players. I’m kinda really excited because The Rock has bought the league, and we’re gonna kinda wait through this pandemic stuff and go again in 2022.”

Coach responded with this tweet to clarify his statement:

Jones coached the Roughnecks to a 5-0 record before the season ended early. His QB, PJ Walker, led the league in passing, and turned that success into an NFL contract.

Even earning his first start after QB Teddy Bridgewater suffered an injury that made him miss some action. The two stay in touch, and because of a game between Temple and SMU when Walker was a freshman, Jones knew he had to have PJ in Houston with the Roughnecks.

“And I’m gonna be honest with ya, it’s gonna work.”
