Kansas football adds three new staff members and changes up roles on a few others.
Jayhawks will play four 15-minute quarters with a running clock.
Rod Jones, a former Kansas standout offensive lineman, serves on KU head coach Charlie Weis' staff as the director of high school relations. Jones joined the Jayhawk staff in 2012 and spent his first season with the program as a graduate assistant for the defense.
Jones, a Detroit native, was a four-year starter for the Jayhawks. Playing primarily at offensive tackle, he was a part of Kansas' 1992 and 1995 Aloha Bowl Teams. He was a senior on the 1995 KU team that recorded a 10-2 mark, finishing with the second-most wins in school history.
Following his KU career, Jones moved on to the NFL where he played for seven seasons, including a start in Super Bowl XXXVI as a member of the St. Louis Rams. He was taken in the seventh round of the 1996 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, where he played for five seasons. He then spent the 2001 season with the Rams, where St. Louis was edged by Weis and the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. Jones finished his career with a one-year stint with the Washington Redskins in 2002.
