Hall: College board acted cowardly in Dan Jones matter

The leadership of the state College Board who made the decision essentially to fire University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones acted in a cowardly manner with their handling of this decision.

They did not publicly announce their decision.

They refused to talk to the media when contacted, though most of them wouldn’t even answer phone calls, emails or text messages.

And they waited until 6:40 p.m. on a Friday to even issue a statement acknowledging Jones’ contract had not been renewed.

Cowardly, indeed.
