"I have talked with (former Arkansas athletic director) Frank Broyles several times in the last year and I know Houston Nutt very well," Jones said of the former Arkansas football coach, who recruited and coached Felix Jones the last three seasons. "So we feel like we knew a lot about him. And at the end of the day, we just kept hearing over and over what a great worker this guy is. That when it's said and done, he does whatever it takes to get the job done."
Cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones is expected to wear No. 21 in honor of his friend Deion Sanders. Jones wore No. 32 in his two seasons with the Titans.
