Mark Whipple returning to UMass as head coach
UMass will replace Charley Molnar with Mark Whipple, the former Miami Hurricanes OC and Minutemen head coach from 1998-2003.
While enduring a rough transition into the FBS, UMass is turning to a familiar face.
UMass will hire Mark Whipple -- who led the Minutemen to a 49-26 record from 1998-2003 -- as its next football coach, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. Other candidates are being notified of the hire tonight.
Louisville running backs coach/special teams coordinator Kenny Carter and Boston College defensive coordinator Don Brown were finalists for the job.
Whipple replaces Charley Molnar, who went 2-22 in UMass's first two seasons in the Mid-American Conference as a football-only member.
Whipple was Randy Shannon's offensive coordinator at Miami from 2009-10 and last served as the Cleveland Browns' quarterbacks coach from 2011-12.
With UMass off the board, the two remaining FBS-level jobs open are Vanderbilt and UAB.
