According to John McClain of Houston Chronicle, June Jones will be the new head coach/GM of the XFL Houston franchise. He is the eighth and final coach of the league, which will begin play in February of 2020.

Jones was the Atlanta Falcons head coach for three seasons leading them to the playoffs in 1995. The next season he was fired after going 3-13. In 1998 he was the interim head coach of the San Diego Chargers for ten games.

He later moved on to the college ranks as head coach for both the University of Hawaii(1999–2007) and Southern Methodist University(SMU)(2008–2014). In 2017 he joined the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League(CFL) where he was the head coach. He is the second head coaching from the CFL coming to the XFL joining XFL Tampa Bay head coach/GM Marc Trestman.

Jones is known as an offensive innovator who specialized in the run and shoot, which should bold well in the new XFL. He favors a wide-open, pass-heavy offense with little running. The type of high scoring Oliver Luck and the XFL front office wants to see.

June Jones joins Winston Moss in Los Angeles, Jonathan Hayes in St. Louis, Kevin Gilbride in New York, Jim Zorn in Seattle, Marc Trestman in Tampa Bay, Pep Hamilton in Washington D.C. and Bob Stoops in Dallas.
