Don Jones suspended for first half of ASU/MTSU matchup on December 1st

Posted:

NEW ORLEANS (SunBeltSports.org) – The Sun Belt Conference announced today that Arkansas State University's Don Jones has been suspended for the first half of the Red Wolves upcoming football game on Saturday, December 1 against Middle Tennessee.

Jones was ejected from the ASU game against Troy University on Saturday, November 17 for a flagrant personal foul.  Sun Belt Conference bylaws state that "any coach or student-athlete ejected from a contest shall be suspended for a minimum of one contest" and that "the suspension shall be served during the institution's next contest."

ASU did appeal the suspension and based on the fact that Jones was ejected in the first quarter (and thus has already sat out three quarters), the suspension was lessened to one half game.
