As the Beaumont Renegades hunt for the perfect head coach, they are beginning to shape their coaching staff. 


The Renegades have announced that Super Bowl champion and First-Team All-Pro Jacoby Jones has joined the team as offensive coordinator.


“I appreciate the opportunity and the trust in me (from the owners),” Jones said. “Beaumont, I’m coming to show a whole different kind of fun in football. We want the fans to have fun and I am going to make sure I do everything I can as offensive coordinator.”


Jones began his professional career just down the road from Beaumont with the Houston Texans selecting him in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Lane College.

After a productive stint with the Texans, Jonas signed with Baltimore and in 2012, became a household name.


In the 2012 season, Jones wreaked havoc on special teams, recording 1,167 yards on just 38 return attempts with two taken to the house. 


One of those set the Ravens’ franchise record for longest kickoff return for a touchdown in franchise history. That’s something Renegades co-owner Derron Griffin remembers well.


“How can you forget Jacoby taking it back 108 (yards) in the Super Bowl,” Griffin said. “Jacoby lit the field on fire and he is going to help these kids try and do the same.”


Jones has gotten a head start in that department. In 2018, Jones returned to his college alma mater Lane to coach the school’s wide receivers. He would go on and do the same thing at Calvert Hall College before moving to tight ends at Morgan State, then back to receivers at Alabama State.





Co-owner Sam Gordon is thrilled with the former All-Pro bringing his great helmet and headset resumes to the Golden Triangle.


“Jacoby was the kind of player where no matter where he was or what he was doing on the field, you knew there was a possibility for a game-altering play to happen,” Gordon said. “What impressed me the most with Jacoby though was his ability to take everything that he had experienced at the highest level and use it to mold some fantastic college players into All-American athletes and great men off the field. It’s rare for an NFL player to make that transition so seamlessly.”
