MANOA (KHNL) -- University of Hawaii Warrior fans have just finished saying aloha to their greatest season, but now could they also be saying aloha to head coach June Jones?

The Warriors winning ways and leadership by Jones has not gone unnoticed by other college programs, and he is on the mainland to meet another interested school.

Back here at home, Jones has resigned, according to a member of the football's booster club. And not just because of a big money offer from that Texas school.

Kent Untermann is a former UH football player, and current member of Na Koa. He says Jones' close friends got the letter, saying that he was done coaching at Hawaii.

Untermann says the letter states 19 reasons why Jones is not pleased at the school. One of the biggest factors -- no improvements.

Jones was headed to Dallas Saturday to talk to Southern Methodist University about their vacant head coaching position. Untermann says money isn't a factor.

Officially, the school said it has not received any letter of resignation from Jones, and he has not officially taken the offer at SMU.

Jones is scheduled to meet with SMU officials on Sunday.
