Share

Southern Methodist University football coach June Jones, a former Grant High star, has received a three-year contract extension.

Jones, 60, who also played quarterback at Portland State and in the NFL, is in position to stay at SMU through 2017.

Jones coached the Mustangs to a 5-7 record in 2013, after taking the team to four consecutive bowl games. He has won two Conference USA championships at SMU, which was a new entrant in the American Athletic Conference this season.
