NEW ORLEANS -- Saints assistant coach Travis Jones has been sentenced to three years probation, 100 hours of community service and ordered to pay $1.15 million in restitution for his role in a real estate scam involving dozens of people in northwest Texas.

The defensive line coach had pleaded guilty last June in Texas' Eastern District of U.S. District Court to conspiracy to commit mail fraud in a scheme allegedly run by Florida resident John Barry. Jones also signed a factual statement admitting his role, which netted him about $86,000.

The Saints suspended Jones 30 days without pay during the 2010 season, but kept him on staff.

Jones' sentencing was issued Thursday by U.S. District Judge Michael Schneider. The Saints have declined comment.
