    Heard the rumor that he has offered to take a demotion to GA in order to be at UT and help out his struggling alma mater, but Dooley said we didn't want him. Anyone know more?

    First I have heard of this.

    Trying to understand legit reasons he would not be welcomed as a GA.

    That would be a slap in the face to Dale Jones. If Dooley said that, it's because he knows better than to even ask something so stupid.

    also, wasn't Jones already a GA? That's how he got his start right? If anything, promote Thompson and give Jones the Linebackers or even the DL. Even if Jones made that offer, it's not fair to him to make him a GA. He's worth way more than that IMO.

    The Dooley hate train is gonna pick up more steam.

    It's something like that, I was thinking it was 5 years. Either way, Dale Jones can't be a GA

    That must have been after we had Mitch Browning.

    I think it was changed while Browning was here actually

    I want to say the change in rule was basically directly because of him working as a GA here wasn't it?

    Pretty much. Saban was doing it too

    Just pretending that Dooley didn't really say we don't want Dale Jones, why would he not be a viable to be DC? I mean, it's a huge step from offering to be a GA, but seriously, why not Dale Jones as DC?

    Although, I still like the idea of promoting LT and giving Jones the linebackers. I just don't know if Jones would consider going from DC at a FCS powerhouse to a position coach again would only be a lateral move if not moving down. I think bring Jones here would be a phenomenal move at this point and I'd be excited about it.

    99% none of this happened. one would think that we would understand most of these rumors are untrue, yet many people get sucked into them. pretty sad.
