This committee will serve as an advocate for promoting and developing concussion safety management plans for the autonomous five Division I conferences and their member schools. They will review all submitted concussion safety protocols and the written certificate of compliance signed by the directors of athletics.

“It is an honor to represent The University of Toledo and the Mid-American Conference on the Concussion Safety Protocol Committee,” Jones said. “The health and well-being of the student-athlete has always been my No. 1 priority. Serving on this committee will allow me to assist others in reviewing their policies concerning the important issues of concussion management.”

Jones has been an athletic trainer for the Rockets for the last 18 years and is in his sixth season as assistant athletic director for sports medicine.

He supervises the treatment and rehabilitation of student-athletes in the Savage Arena Athletic Training Facility, and works directly with the men’s basketball program. In addition to his athletic training duties, Jones also serves as the men’s basketball program’s travel coordinator.

A native of La Porte, Ind., Jones received a bachelor of science degree in athletic training from Ball State University in 1995. Jones also earned a master of science degree in athletic training from Michigan State University in 1997.
