Butch Jones Close to Joining Saban at Bama?

With Saban’s on-field staff complete Jones would be in line for an offensive analyst role with the Crimson Tide.

The former Tennessee Head Coach was fired last November just short of five full seasons.  He was the head coach at Cincinnati (2010-12) and Central Michigan (2007-09); his last job that didn’t involve being a head coach or position coach came as a graduate assistant at Rutgers from 1990-92.
