If that arrow is going up, it just makes sense to have our future with Jason.’’
Jones is betting on Garrett this season the way he has in the past and thinks that Garrett will be an even better coach in 2014.
“There’s more,’’ Jones said. “I can assure you there’s more than what we’ve seen and it’s logical that it is. I want to get more. We paid a pretty good price for that.’’
