He was previously Neil Warnock's assistant manager at Leeds United in the 2012/13 season. It was at Peterborough that Jones initially met Neil Warnock and he would go on to assist at Notts County from 1989 to 1993, Huddersfield Town from 1993 to 1995, before joining Plymouth Argyle in 1995, once again as Warnock's assistant and later with Sheffield United.

Jones began his coaching career Canadian outfit Ottawa Tigers, before he returned to England in 1976 to fill the manager's role at Kettering Town, initially as player-manager.

He enjoyed a successful spell with Kettering which saw them in the FA Trophy final in 1979 and after losing the final to Stafford Rangers. Later Jones entered league management at Mansfield Town. After two seasons with the club he joined Bradford City to assist his former team mate Roy McFarland.

The pair also had a spell at Derby followed before Jones had two years in charge of Halifax Town. Peterborough then appointed Jones, initially as Noel Cantwell's assistant, before he took over as manager in 1988.

Jones remained with Brunei until 2002 and returned to England for spells as assistant manager at Nuneaton Borough, and he would also go on to manage Telford United.

In 2005, Jones resumed his partnership with Warnock at Sheffield United. The pair enjoyed success as the Blades were promoted to the Premier League at the end of Jones' first season. Jones also assisted in guiding the club to FA Cup and League Cup Semi-Finals.

With The Eagles, Palace finished 5th and 15th in the Championship, before the pair left Selhurst Park to join QPR during the 2009/10 campaign.

QPR's spell outside the top flight during that period had included administration, a spell in League One, several owners and numerous managers, but they topped the table since November of the 2010/11 season.

QPR were 20th in the Championship in March 2010 and Warnock & Jones transformed the team to promotion in 13 months. They remained with the club until January 2012.
