SHARE Member of ND support staff hospitalized after flight

Notre Dame’s team plane landed in South Bend around 10:50 p.m. central time and was met by emergency medical personnel. After an uncomfortable bit of assuming and speculating on social media, Notre Dame released this statement:“Ernest Jones, director of player development and engagement for the

University of Notre Dame football administrative staff, will remain

overnight at Memorial Hospital of South Bend (Ind.) while undergoing

further evaluation and treatment for dehydration.

Jones

became ill with about two hours remaining on the Notre Dame football

squad’s Delta charter flight that returned from Dublin tonight following

the 50-10 Irish win over Navy earlier in the day. The flight landed at

Michiana Regional Airport about 11:50 p.m. Saturday and Jones was

transported to Memorial at that time. Jones is listed in stable condition.”This is Jones’ first year on the Notre Dame support staff after two years as associate head coach at Buffalo. He serves as a liason between the players and the coaching staff, as well as student welfare and development, and academic services.
