Alabama Strength and Conditioning Coach Retires After 34 Years at The Capstone
Alabama strength and conditioning coach Terry Jones Sr. has called it a career after 34 years of service working at the University of Alabama.
Jones was born in Sandersville, Ga., and played four seasons for the Alabama Crimson Tide for Coach Paul "Bear" Bryant from 1974-77. He was part of three SEC Championship teams and won two Sugar Bowls during his time as a defensive lineman.
Jones Sr. went on to play for the Green Bay Packers for eight seasons appearing in 85 games.
He returned to Tuscaloosa to work as strength and conditioning coach. During his time at The Capstone he worked with football, women's basketball, women's golf and the women's track team.
"Terry has great relationships with players," said Alabama head coach Nick Saban. "I think that's always something that's really, really important, even more important now with the new culture that we have in college athletics. He's always made a huge impact with the players relative to his knowledge and his experience. He's always been a great guy to have around."
He was certified as a Master Strength and Conditioning Coaching by the Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coaches Association in 2003, the highest certification possible for a strength and conditioning coach.
The Alabama Crimson Tide football program won seven national championships and 11 SEC titles during his time on the strength and conditioning staff.
