Richard “Cam” Jones has been named the new head football coach at Chamberlain, Chamberlain High principal Tommy Morrill said Tuesday.

Jones, an offensive assistant coach with Chamberlain last season, replaces DJ Mayo, who resigned last week after just one season to become the quarterbacks coach at Warner University in Lake Wales.

Jones inherits a program that finished 4-6 in 2012 and 1-9 in 2011.

Nearly 20 applied for the position at Chamberlain, 10 of which were interviewed, Morrill said. Jones was hired to teacher in the ESE program at Chamberlain. Prior to Chamberlain, Jones had coaching stints at South Florida and Jefferson High.

“He’s very passionate and enthusiastic,” Morrill said. “And he’s high on academic achievement.
Morrill said he also admired Jones’ demeanor on the sideline during games.

“His practice and game day expectations are high,” Morrill said.
