C-USA Football: Tigers hire Fuente's, Jones rebuked by ASU

Two quick notes on the Conference USA football coaching front:

1) The Memphis Commercial Appeal is reporting that the University of Memphis is set to hire TCU co-offensive coordinator Justin Fuente as their next football coach. Fuente’s has been at TCU since 2007, starting out as running backs coach before being promoted to co-offensive coordinator in 2009. Memphis will officially announce the hire in a new conference later today.

2) Yesterday afternoon it appeared that SMU head football coach June Jones was leaving for Arizona State. One report indicated Jones had pulled his assistance off the recruiting trail to inform them of his decision but, something unexpected happen. According to this Arizona Republic article, ASU president Michael Crow decided to end negotiations with Jones.
