    Looks like the money talked, but Jones took a shot at the Hawaii athletic department.
    Jones is leaving because of "a lack of loyalty and commitment from athletic department leaders," among other things, according to the report.
    HONOLULU -- The University of Hawaii has offered football coach June Jones a contract that would make him the highest-paid coach in the Western Athletic Conference or the Mountain West Conference.

    Hawaii athletic director Herman Frazier told The Honolulu Advertiser the school's president, the UH-Manoa chancellor and himself collectively made the offer.

    They made it both to Jones directly and later to his agent Leigh Steinberg.

    Jones is traveling to Dallas this weekend to discuss the open head coaching position at SMU.

    Jones is coming off the most successful season in UH history, going 12-0 in the regular season before losing to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

      He's being offered a lot more money by another team. Hard to pass up when you are talking that kind of cash.

                Brian will land an NFL job somewhere. The fact that he has a ring will get him another chance in the NFL.

                  he may go as a OC somewhere, but he's not going to get a HC job in the NFL right now. No way.

                        Hey, he took Hawaii from a floating turd in the pacific to a BCS bowl game i wonder what he can do with SMU a team still trying to recover from the NCAA Death penilty, i know one thing, the talent in the State of Texas alone will give him a hard on.
