Dale joins the Notre Dame staff after spending four years at Texas A&M, where he worked with the football team specifically. While at Texas A&M, Dale worked with Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the rest of the quarterbacks doing quarterback-specific work during the four years he was there. Dale also worked with several first round offensive linemen draft picks in addition to Mike Evans, a first round wide receiver draft pick, and Brandon Williams, a third round defensive back. He designed flexibility and mobility programs for specific individuals and the entire team, while co-writing the team's strength and conditioning program.

Prior to Texas A&M, Jones spent 12 years as an assistant director of sports performance at the University of Houston. He worked with football, baseball, softball, women's basketball, soccer, track and field, swimming and diving, and tennis. During his time at Houston, Dale developed a quarterback specific program while working with Case Keenum, a NCAA record holding and professional quarterback . While there as a coach, he worked with the Health and Human Performance Department to develop an online master's degree in strength and conditioning.

Jones received his master's degree in exercise science from the University of Houston in 2003 and a bachelor's degree in exercise physiology with magna cum laude honors from Washburn University in 1994. In addition, he was recognized as a 1994 Physical Education Major of the Year for Washburn and NASPE.

Jones is a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach, earning this distinction from the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCa) in May of 2015. He is also a strength and conditioning coach certified by the CSCCa, a certified strength and conditioning specialist by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, a certified Sports Performance Coach by USA Weightlifting, and has completed his CrossFit Mobility training.

Jones lives in Granger, Indiana with his wife Nicole and their two daughters, Abigail and Madison.
