Butch Jones' Impact On Patriots WR Thompkins

Butch Jones preaches family everyday as part of every team he has coached. A prime example of how Jones embraces his players is evident with current New England Patriots receiver Kenbrell Thompkins. The Boston Herald has chronicled Thompkins, who played for Jones at Cincinnati, over the last few days with these stories that prominently mention Jones' impact on the rookie.

This quote sums up how Jones' feels about Thompkins:

"I'll tell you what. I love Kenbrell Thompkins," Jones said. "One of the proudest moments I've had in coaching is when he texted me this past year when he got his degree and went through graduation. To me, that's what it's all about. I think this is one of the greatest stories. We get in this profession to help young adults, and I think it's a great story.
