Oklahoma State cornerbacks coach Jason Jones is leaving the program to become an assistant coach at Mississippi.
Jones becomes the fourth OSU assistant to depart since the end of last season, joining defensive coordinator/defensive line coach Bill Young, offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Todd Monken and receivers coach Doug Meacham.
Monken and Meacham left to become head coach at Southern Mississippi and offensive coordinator at Houston, respectively. Young was not retained.
Jones spent five years on the OSU staff after serving an assistant coach at the University of Tulsa in 2005 and 2007.
Jones has SEC roots. He is a former starting defensive back at Alabama.
The news of Jones' departure trickled out via a Twitter post from Oklahoma City TV sports anchor Bob Barry Jr., and Jones' exit was later confirmed by OSU. A replacement for Jones has not been hired, according to the university's sports information department. Spring drills begin Monday.
