Although it is a noteworthy achievement Jones it should be noted that Nick Saban doesn’t have a Twitter account. It’s very likely Saban would have a bigger following than the coach at Tennessee.

There are other SEC coaches right there with Jones. LSU head coach Les Miles is nipping at his heels with over 145,000 followers and Georgia coach Mark Richt is right behind with over 138,000.

But the football guys followers are just chump change to Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari. Coach Cal has over a million followers on his Twitter account.
