Southern Methodist is interested in Hawaii's June Jones as its new football coach, the Dallas Morning News reports.
The Mustangs have been looking for a coach since firing Phil Bennett on Oct. 28.
Jones' five-year, $4-million deal with Hawaii ends in July, and no new deal has been reached. SMU athletic director Steve Orsini has raised around $10 million for the new coach and staff.
Frankly, we put the odds of Jones leaving Hawaii for SMU at slightly less than 10,000-to-1.
Other coaches in the mix at SMU include former Miami coach Larry Coker and former Texas A&M coach Dennis Franchione.
