Quarterback Johnny Manziel would like to be reunited with June Jones, head coach and general manager of Houston's XFL team.

Manziel played for Jones last season at Hamilton before being traded to Montreal when he was unable to beat out starter Jeremiah Masoli.

"I enjoyed every single day I had with coach Jones," Manziel said Saturday at TriStar's Show at Reliant Arena. "Being in his offense was the best part of each day. I know he's going to be successful wherever he's coaching."

Manziel would like to play in Texas and pointed out what Houston means to him.

"It's a stone's throw from College Station," he said. "A lot of Aggies drove from Houston to College Station. Houston's a great city that'll always be near and dear to me."
