UMass Parts Ways With DC & ST Coordinators As Well

Friday afternoon news broke that UMass has chosen to part ways with embattled second-year head coach Charlie Molnar after going 2-22 in his first two seasons and dealing with some off-field controversies as well. Now according to Bob McGovern of Maroon Musket the Minutemen have released defensive coordinator Phil Elmassian and linebackers and special teams coordinator Ted Daisher as well. According to USA Today's coaching salary database Elmassian was actually the second highest paid assistant coach in the MAC for the 2013 season. His base salary was $168,394.

All told this brings the number of UMass football coaches fired in the past month. The Minutemen released their offensive coordinator and their receivers coach at the begining of the month. What happens to the rest of the staff? We;; according to McGovern the school will try to keep them on with the new coaching staff, or they will buy them out.

All told this has been a rocky transition to the FBS for UMass, especially over the past month. Five coaches fired, several key players transferring, and more grumblings about wether or not the transition is worth the effort.

Happy Boxing Day UMass fans!

Wake Nears Decision; Clawson, Lembo Draw Interest

According to Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Bowling Green Falcons head coach Dave Clawson interviewed on Sunday for the open head coaching position at Wake Forest.  Wake Forest's athletic director Ron Wellman, who is a graduate of Bowling Green State University, was in attendance at the Mid-American Conference Championship Game on Friday.  He had already interviewed Ball St. Cardinals head coach Pete Lembo earlier in the week.

Thamel states that a decision should be made by Monday night.  In other words, we should know within the next 24 hours.

It seems clear that Wake Forest will hire one of the two men, but which one remains up in the air.  Lembo has had great success at Ball State, but Clawson built his stock significantly over the last month and capped that with the 47-27 win over then-undefeated Northern Illinois on Friday.

Both Clawson and Lembo will apparently have other opportunities if Wake Forest chooses the other.  Thamel states that the Connecticut Huskies have shown interest in Lembo and that an interview could happen within the next few days.  UConn fired Paul Pasqualoni after the Huskies started 0-4.  At the end of the article, Thamel reveals that Boise State officials have reached out to Clawson within the last few days, but no interview has been set up.  Chris Petersen left Boise State last week to become the new head coach of the Washington Huskies.

Ball State will play in the GoDaddy.com Bowl in four weeks.  Bowling Green now has just 18 days until it plays Pittsburgh in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
