He won a share of the Big East after an abysmal season. He has players in the pros and more on the way. He won the Liberty Bowl and has been acknowledged by some as having the best UC recruiting class ever. More important to his coaching staff is that he wasn't the only one compensated for the teams success. Coach Jones showed his staff how much he valued them as well, which means if someone comes to raid the cabinet it has to be substantial for them to leave and that's how you keep good assistants longer.
I believe Butch Jones wants to build and maintain a top notch, first rate program at UC and enjoy the fruits of his efforts by not leaving anytime soon. I think he sees so much upside that he wants to help cement UC as a football power not just in the Big East but nationally as well. You might think the win versus Vanderbilt was not much to rave about but a win against any SEC team is a big win and a stride not just a step in the right direction.
UC is still looked upon in some circles as a second tier team and Coach Jones is out to change that. The only way you do that is by winning and beating teams that have the label of top tier teams, whether they come from the SEC, Big 10,11 or 12 or, whatever the conferences will be named with all the moving and shifting over the last year.
So between now and 2017 Butch Jones is in a relationship with the University of Cincinnati and he appears to be a one team man. You can't ask for much more than that.
That's the way I see it, sitting in The Box Seat
