FORT WORTH, Texas — SMU coach June Jones has no plans to leave for Maryland.

Jones says he spoke by phone with a search firm, but had no discussions with school officials from Maryland. He has removed his name from consideration for that job, which is open after the Terrapins fired coach Ralph Friedgen last week.

SMU players said Wednesday that Jones told them in a meeting about being contacted by Maryland representatives and his commitment to stay at SMU.

The Mustangs play in their second consecutive bowl game Thursday after a 25-year bowl drought. SMU (7-6) plays Army in the Armed Forces Bowl.
