Corby Jones is a former quarterback for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. He is perhaps best known for his time in college playing for the Missouri Tigers. During his two seasons as starter (1997–1998), Jones led the Tigers to their first two winning seasons in 13 years.

College career[edit]

Jones joined the Tigers' football team as the backup quarterback in 1995. Halfway through his freshman year, he lost his redshirt in a game against one of the best Nebraska football squads in history. Even after being stripped of his redshirt, he entered a three-man contest for the starting quarterback job. Jones got his chance to start for Mizzou in 1997. In his first season as starter, Jones lead the team to a 7-5 record, its first winning season in 13 years. He followed that up with an 8-4 record in 1998.

Pro career[edit]

Upon finishing up his senior season at Mizzou, Jones entered the 1999 NFL Draft as a projected 6th or 7th-round draft pick. It became clear that Jones' position in the NFL was unclear, but it was evident that he would not be a quarterback in the NFL.

Post-Football Life[edit]

Jones graduated from the University of Missouri School of Law with a Juris Doctor in 2003.

Jones officially joined the Fox Sports Net crew on July 24, 2008.[1]

In 2012, Jones founded law firm Jones Jennings, P.C. with partners Quentin Jennings and Kirra Jones. .[2]
