Julio Jones at the opening of his Tuscaloosa car dealership
TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -
Like his former coach, Julio Jones is officially in the car dealership business. The former Alabama receiver from Foley, AL has opened a Kia & Mazda dealership on Greensboro Avenue in Tuscaloosa. On Tuesday afternoon the current Atlanta Falcons receiver spoke with reporters about his love for cars - he says he talked with Nick Saban a few years ago about his dream of owning a dealership and says Saban was very helpful.
While he owns several Ferrari’s, the NFL All-Pro says that he’s proud of the Mazda and Kia brands, and joked, “As of today I own several.”
Here’s Julio touching on three subjects while in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday: The Crimson Tide’s most recent national championship (Julio says he fell asleep watching the game), his thoughts on this weekend’s Super Bowl, and his feelings about heading up a dealership.
