"Dan Jones has been a very successful chancellor, and his termination today stinks to high heaven.
Dan Jones has fought cancer, and he never missed a beat while undergoing treatment. With no supporting information, news of Chancellor Jones' termination was released late on a Friday afternoon. Mississippians deserve better from Governor Bryant's appointed IHL Board.
This is exactly why I'm running for governor. Education, and most assuredly Higher Education, must be a priority, and Phil Bryant has failed Mississippi on Education.
This is a real loss for Ole Miss and for our state."
