Dutchtown football coach Jones resigns after one season

Kevin “Bull” Jones has resigned as football coach at Dutchtown in Henry County after one season, saying it was not the right fit. Dutchtown was 4-6 under Jones, who had replaced Jason Galt.

‘’I just thought the time was right for personal reasons,’’ Jones said Monday. “We had a wonderful bunch of kids over there, awesome parents, awesome booster club. It wasn’t my intent to leave there any time soon. My focus was trying to put Dutchtown on the map in football, but for different reasons, that’s not going to happen.’’

Jones was regarded as one of the top assistants in Georgia while at Lovejoy, where he was a defensive coordinator on teams that had 15 shutouts in three seasons and reached two state championship games. Jones had been a head coach at Riverdale for one season and finished 7-3 and had been an assistant at three DeKalb County schools, including his alma mater Redan.

Jones said that the decision was his and that he would be looking at other opportunities.

‘’I will know more clearly soon; there are just so many things coming at me now,’’ Jones said. ‘’I have been contacted by various people in schools, but right now, I’m soaking things in with my wife and kids.’’
