After more than 30 years in coaching, June Jones is moving into administration as Saint Louis School’s new director of athletic programs and development, the school said.
“He (Jones) will be overseeing the athletics program as far as helping our students reach not only athletic excellence but also academic excellence, which is really a big part of why he wanted to be at Saint Louis,” said Glenn Medeiros, head of school for Saint Louis. “He really cares about Hawaii’s kids.”
If Cal Lee steps down as head football coach, Jones is expected to assume that position as well. But “that would be June’s decision,” a source said.
Lee, 70, guided the Crusaders to the Hawaii High School Athletic Association open division title last month and has not said if he will return for 2017. He has said he will make a decision after the holidays.
Jones is expected to take on a major fundraising role for the school in addition to athletics.
Wade Okamura will remain as director of athletics, a position he has held since 2014. Medeiros said.
