After a few years of coaching overseas for European leagues, Austin Jones has returned stateside to tackle his latest leadership role on a Minnesota football field as the new M State Spartans Head Football Coach and Student Athlete Retention Specialist.
Jones will serve the college full-time in this newly created dual position. The retention specialist role was created to support the success of student athletes at the college.
