  2. A very thorough and revealing interview. I want to thank Coach Jones for his heartfelt and penetrating responses that collectively assimilated a perfect jump shot.

  3. We are so lucky to have this man at BU. Thank you, Coach Jones, for your leadership and your role as teacher, mentor and model for the young men on your team… and for all of us.

  4. There are 357 NCAA Division I men’s basketball coaches in the country. I couldn’t imagine a better one for BU than Coach Jones. Leader, mentor, role model, friend and more. Simply the best!!

  5. We are blessed with Coach Jones leadership, character and heart. About 10 years ago my son participated in Coach Jones’ basketball camp for kids just for one summer. When he was accepted to BU’s 2024 class Coach Jones took the time to call him and says congrats and welcome to BU even though my son was not a prospect for the team. What a class act! Thank you Coach Jones for standing up and speaking out.

  6. Great interview with the amazing and thoughtful Coach Joe Jones. I have had the pleasure of seeing him interviewed a few times about his leadership philosophy and approach, and these great qualities are evident entirely throughout this interview. Proud to have him as a colleague!
