New Troy athletic director Brent Jones expects the Trojans to continue growing the program, past the record revenue they have already posted. Troy received more than $32 million in revenue in 2017-18, the most-recent available year from the U.S. Department of Education, and is set to exceed that, Jones said. By how much? “I’m not going to put a cap on it because I think it’s endless if we continue to put our minds together and be as creative as possible,” Jones said after being formally introduced Wednesday. Jones has been a part of that as Troy’s deputy athletic director for external operations the last two years under Jeremy McClain, who was Troy’s athletic director from August 2015 until being hired by Southern Miss this spring. In that time, Troy’s athletic revenue blossomed from $21.6 million in 2015-16 to $32.6 million in 2017-18, according to the U.S. Department of Education. The 2018-19 numbers aren’t yet final. Jones, 38, has been heavily involved with Troy’s coaches, too. He aided McClain in hiring football coach Chip Lindsey and men’s basketball coach Scott Cross, both in the last six months. He was the athletic department administrator for baseball. – A. Stacy Long, montgomeryadvertiser – Read More
