SMU Football Coach June Jones Is Resigning.

Seems the trouble's just starting for the Southern Methodist University football program's 2014 season: After two losses to kick off the year — including an especially devastating loss this past weekend at the hands regional rival the University of North Texas — seventh-year Mustangs head coach June Jones is now set to resign from his position.

Interestingly, Jones is now the second high-profile area sports coach to resign this week prior to the end of an in-progress season. On Friday, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington made waves with the surprising announcement of his own abrupt decision to leave his gig. But whereas speculation continues over Washington's career change, Jones' reasons for parting seem more obvious — despite the story being pushed by his agent on his Twitter, where the news was confirmed.

Except, since when is 36-43 record and just three winning seasons over a six-and-a-half period deemed a successful accomplishment?

With any luck, we'll get answers to that question and others also related to the similarly former University of Hawaii and Atlanta Falcons coach soon: SMU is hosting a press conference about the news tonight at 7 p.m.
