June Jones joins Saint Louis athletics department

Former University of Hawaii head football coach June Jones has accepted an offer to become director of athletic programs and development for Saint Louis School.

He starts at Saint Louis on Monday, Dec. 5.

“I have long admired the 170-year history of Saint Louis, particularly because Hawaii’s oldest Catholic school has always emphasized service to young men of diverse backgrounds,” said Jones. “I look forward to working with head football coach Cal Lee and am excited about this unique opportunity to give back to the only all-boys school in our local community.”

Glenn Medeiros, Head of School, said, “As a new member of our administrative team, June will work with our athletic director Wade Okamura overseeing all athletic programs while supporting our collective commitment to academic excellence. It is through combined efforts such as these that we create new opportunities for young men in Hawaii.”

Jones was most recently offensive coordinator for Kapolei High School’s football team.

He took over the Rainbow Warriors in 1999 following an 0-12 season, and led the team to two WAC Championships and seven bowl games over the next nine years.

Jones left UH following Hawaii’s Sugar Bowl loss in early 2008 and spent the next seven years at Southern Methodist University. He stepped down after two games of the 2014 season.
