Clarkson University named Jones to lead the Golden Knights Men’s Ice Hockey Team on Friday, after an extensive national search. Jones, associate head coach and an alumnus of the men’s hockey program at Cornell University, served as an assistant coach at Clarkson in the early 1990s.

In honor of Jones' hiring, the Clarkson University Bookstore in downtown Potsdam and the new Knight Armor store in Cheel Arena, both managed by Folletts Inc., have made May 23-27 “Show Your Clarkson Spirit Week” with 25 percent off all Clarkson emblem clothing.  The Cheel Spirit Store will extend its normal hours to 5:30 p.m. that evening.
