About the Teacher
After attending Northeast Mississippi Community College, I went on to earn my bachelor's degree in history at MUW and master's degree in sports administration at Arkansas State.
My name is Justin Jones, and I am from Guntown, Mississippi. I attended Saltillo High School, where I graduated in 2003. After high school, I attended Northeast Mississippi Community College for two years, earning an academic scholarship to the Mississippi University for Women (I know, I know). This strange path ended up being a blessing, though, as it allowed me to meet my future wife in college and eventually start my football coaching career as a student coach at New Hope High School in Columbus, Mississippi.
Once out of college, I began working as a teacher and football coach at Center Hill High School in 2009. At the end of that school year, I married my college sweetheart, Hilary (graduate of Olive Branch High). I went on to have seven great years at Center Hill and was lucky enough to teach and coach some amazing young men and women and work with great people. When the offensive line coaching position became available at Olive Branch in 2016, however, I jumped at the opportunity to come to a school with such a proud academic and athletic history!
When I'm not teaching or coaching football, you can find me coaching track, attending Ole Miss sporting events (Hotty Toddy!), watching movies, or having fun with my little boy.
I love getting to make an impact in the lives of young men and women! Education, football, and the relationships I make with students and players are very important parts of my life. Without a doubt, I am extremely proud to be a Quistor!
