Former UMass Coach Charley Molnar Finds New Home

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

After two dismal seasons leading the Massachusetts Minutemen and one sudden firing, Charley Molnar found a new job.

Charley Molnar, after compiling a 2-22 record in two seasons with the Massachusetts Minutemen, had found a new job after being fired from UMass this past December. He accepted an offer to become wide receiver coach at the University of Idaho under Paul Petrino.

Molnar's two year stint at UMass was filled with disappointment. He was ushered into the head coach role of a team making its first appearance in FBS play, and promises of greener pastures were made. Unfortunately, those promises were not kept. Questionable decisions on the field and poor play had some fans calling for his head, while complaints about his harsh practice methods and faculty members trying to have UMass relegated back to FCS play had left the rest of the fan base wanting.

Molnar finds himself in a familiar situation, though. The Idaho Vandals, like the Minutemen, have gone 1-11 the past two seasons. The Vandals are hoping that a man whose receiving core the past year came in 120th in college football can improve their 106th ranked receiving core.

We here at the Hustle Belt wish both Idaho and Charley Molnar the best of luck.
