Assistant ST coach Amos Jones gets the job.  Never heard of Amos Jones, and didn't know we even had an assistant ST coach.

I guess it's no longer just porn stars practicing Amos bleaching.

I'm still suspicious about a white guy name "Amos."

 Maybe he is using one of these: http://news.yahoo.com/york-robbers-unmasked-grateful-note-disguise-155800269--abc-news-topstories.html

Fired for "professional differences."

Read:  Tomlin was pissed at poor STs play, he and Everest butted heads, Tomlin won.

Not that Everest is being pissy; he apparently wants to work in the league again and knows protocol.

Takeaway:  Tomlin has to have been unhappy with STs for a while and probably had AE on a short leash; he's not afraid to pull the trigger when you cross the line go below the line (see Arians, "Fathead").

Mike Tomlin - defensive backs coach - University of Cincinnati - 1999-2000
Amos Jones - running backs/special teams coach - University of Cincinnati - 1999-2002

Some history there?

Interesting that Jones didn't get the ST job outright when Everest came in.

If I read the history right, Tomlin hired Ligashesky in '07 when he took over.  Amos was hired in '07 to work as assistant special team coach under Ligashesky.  Tomlin fired Ligs and hired Everest in '10 and...Amos continued to work as assistant ST coach?

Wonder why he didn't just promote Jones in '10...
