The move will allow Jones to focus on overseeing the new National Basketball Centre, which will open later this year in Manchester, as well as his directorships of Basketball England and the British Basketball Federation.
Jones, who led the Giants for the past three seasons in his second period as head coach, said: “It was my desire to insure that Manchester talent could compete at the top level in the UK and build a platform for that to continue.
“The development of British talent has been a priority for me since I came to this country.
“The development of the club and the growth in junior participation is gaining momentum and will continue to expand.
“With the opening of the National Centre in Manchester, the future is very positive and provides an opportunity to continue that player development pathway.”
Jones added: “I would like to thank the players and support staff as well as the fans for the support they have shown over the three years and I am sure it will continue to grow and progress”.
Giants CEO John Dwan said: “Jeff is a man of great integrity and has offered a huge amount to Manchester Giants.
“He is admired by the players, the Giants fans and right across the game and deserves both our deep thanks and the widest recognition for his commitment and contribution.”
