Morgan State University has hired Jacoby Jones as tight ends coach. On Monday, the show announced the hire on its Instagram page. Tyrone Wheatley, a former NFL running back and Michigan standout, will be his boss. Jones, who was a member of the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII championship team, does have coaching experience. He worked under Brian Billick during training camp in 2013 before being cut. Previously, he served as Baltimore's punt returner for two seasons.
In 2014, he returned 22 punts for 226 yards and one touchdown. He also had 7 catches for 100 yards and another score that year. Jones became a star return man for the Ravens after returning three kicks for touchdowns in 2012: one punt, one kickoff, and one jet sweep. He was named MVP of the postseason awards ceremony after he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in one game against San Francisco. The first was a 99-yard bomb that put the Ravens up 21-10 early in the fourth quarter; the second was a 75-yard blast that closed out the game and sent them to their first ever Super Bowl.
After his successful run with the Ravens, Jones signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a free agent in 2016. However, he didn't last long in Jville - he started only four games before getting released. He then landed with Morgan State, his alma mater, working under his former boss Wheatley. They will work together to try to help the Bears move forward after they fired John Fox earlier this month.
Jones, a second-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2017 NFL Draft, joined the Jaguars' practice squad in September after the Eagles dismissed him. He was added to the Jaguars' active squad in mid-September and made his debut in Week 5.
Jones attended Southfield High School in Southfield, Michigan. As a senior, he had 46 catches for 910 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also returned kicks as well as played defense.
He chose the Jaguars over offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, South Florida, Syracuse, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Jones went to school at Southfield High because it was close to his house. He said that when he got there he felt right at home. He added that he liked the coaching staff and how they treated their players.
Coach Jack Del Rio said that Jones had done some good things during training camp and the preseason games that he has played in. However, due to offensive line injuries, he was not able to see any action on game day.
Del Rio also mentioned that they will evaluate whether or not to keep him on the roster after the season starts. If they do, then he would get an opportunity to win a job as the fifth receiver on the depth chart.
