BANGOR – Ed Jones was an instrumental part of the 1994 University of Maine squad that nearly went dancing for the first time, and now, he’ll have a chance to lead a struggling program to a tournament of their own.
John Bapst tabbed Jones to take over as head coach for the boys basketball program this season. Jones will replace Rick Sinclair, who left for Hermon to become their new athletic director. No stranger to coaching in Maine, Jones also served as an assistant for UMaine, and led the MCI prep team in the past as well.
He no longer lives in state, but is expected back in the middle of September. The Crusaders finished in 12th place in Class B North last season, missing the playoffs by a few HealPoints.
