Butch Jones leads first practice at UC

Yesterday, Butch Jones led his first day of summer practice as the new head coach at Cincinnati. 

Jones seemed really enthusiastic and added, “You throw in the grueling temperatures here at Nippert, it’s over 120 degress, and I thought our kids responded.”

This morning, Jones tweeted, “Driving in to campus this morning I saw that the new turf for our new practice facility has arrived - we will move in @ the end of the month.”
