Q&A: Nathaniel Jones, Secondary coach for UMHB football

BELTON- The UMHB coaching staff is noticeably different entering the 2022 season, as compared to last year’s, especially on the offensive side of the ball, where every full-time coach is in his first season with the program. On the defense, many of the same faces are still there, such as defensive coordinator Jack Johnson and defensive line/special teams coordinator Nick Brace. But there is one new face, the most recent addition to the staff: Nathaniel Jones. Hired in July, Jones has journeyed from New Orleans high schools, to pro teams in Europe, and to Dubuque, Iowa, as the cornerbacks coach and special teams coordinator in 2021 at Loras College (D-III). He will be the Cru’s secondary coach, working primarily with the cornerbacks and safeties whose play will be vital throughout the fall.
