Radford has hired VCU assistant Mike Jones.

According to sources, Radford athletic director Robert Lineburg has tabbed Jones to succeed Brad Greenberg – who resigned last month following an NCAA investigation.

A news conference is scheduled for Wednesday at 11 a.m.

Jones has been on Shaka Smart’s staff for the past two years. Previously, he worked for Dennis Felton at Georgia. Jones, the son of former NBA/ABA player Jimmy Jones, played and coached at Howard University – and was also an assistant under John Beilein at Richmond and briefly at West Virginia.

Jones will inherit a program that has struggled the last two seasons after winning the Big South title and going to the NCAA tournament in 2009.

Radford was 5-24 this past season.

He was Shaka Smart's assistant coach at VCU, hence the play on "Smart Ass't".

I believe hiring a smart ass 't is better than a dumb ass 't.  BTW what's with the " 't" ?

He is the son of former ABA/NBA player Jimmy Jones who played for the Bullets during their great years of the 70's.  A great recruiter and x's and o's guy, is ranked as one of the top assistants in college hoops.  Great hire for the Highs!
