ESPN sources: Alabama offensive analyst Butch Jones will remain on the Crimson Tide staff for the 2019 season. Jones' role is still to be determined. He could fill one of Alabama's offensive position coach vacancies or work in a senior analyst or advisory position, according to sources. Jones had been mentioned as a candidate to join Maryland's staff under Mike Locksley, who worked with Jones at Alabama last season. But the Terrapins on Wednesday announced three offensive assistants, including coordinator Scottie Montgomery.
