    and he's been convicted of assault

    maximum of one year in prison

    this quote pretty much says it all

    Jones doesn't belong in collegiate coaching

    Reading this story if true this “victim” was drunk pounding on windows of car doors for rides, already punched someone and broke the guys window. I know folks that would have shot this douche.

    It’s very unfortunate he died but MANY folks would have the reaction this coach had. I’m painting this as an absolute accident more than homicide.

    It shows the guy was backing up and dis-engaging.

    Listen, any time you engage in a fist fight with a stranger these days, you invite the possibility of death or jail. Just like the Beathard kid. A sad and different story, but it falls under the same camp.

    I've been young and drunk and I've done it too, but there's the real and not too small possibility you kill someone or someone kills you.
