UMass Names Advisory Committee in Search for New Football Coach

40-Umass logoAMHERST, Mass. (WGGB) — The University of Massachusetts Amherst has named an advisory committee as the school begins the process of finding a new head football coach.

According to a release from the university, the 12-member panel will be co-chaired by Director of Athletics John McCutcheon and Vice Chancellor for University Relations John Kennedy.

Carr Sports Consulting, a firm out of Gainesville, Florida, has been hired to help identify candidates and assess their qualifications.

The university expects to hire a coach by mid-January.

Charley Molnar was dismissed as head coach on December 26.

In his two seasons at UMass, Molnar went 2-22 overall, and 2-14 in the Mid-Atlantic Conference.

He is still owed $836,000 by the school.
