Jones brings option expertise to Marauders

Even the staunchest University of Mary football fan will agree that the Marauders’ first season running the triple option offense was, well, a failure.

Coaches with no prior experience with the complicated system teaching it to freshmen and sophomores then throwing them into the fire was a losing proposition.

The Marauders were outscored 479-116 and outgained 5,390-2,569 in total yards.

Those numbers were unsustainable so head coach Josh Kotelnicki searched for an offensive coordinator whose expertise is the triple option.

Enter Bob Jones, who said at U-Mary media day on Thursday that the triple option is all he knows. “We hired experts to teach it better,” Kotelnicki said prior to the start of fall camp.

Jones spent the last two seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Springfield College in Massachusetts. He coached the offensive line in 2015 and the half backs in 2016.

“The triple option is all I’ve ever known. I’ve played in its since middle school, through high school and college. It’s been in my blood the whole time I’ve been coaching.”
