Re: Don Brown to be DC in Maryland
The guy who covers UMass football closest published this list, not sure if it's based on inside info or total speculation:
Kevin Morris, UMass OC
Tom Masella, Fordham HC and former UMass DC
Jack Cosgrove, Maine HC
Dick Biddle, Colgate HC
Tom Gilmore, Holy Cross HC
Phil Estes, Brown HC
Matt Griffin, Murray State HC
Neal Brown, Troy State OC and former UMass player
Any major BC assistant not hired by BC (Spaziani, Bicknell Jr.)
And of course everyone wants Mark Whipple to come back.
I think the BC coordinators are longshots considering that the UMass HC just left to become a coordinator in the ACC. How many head coach jobs are left at the FBS level? If BC drags their feet and brings in someone who doesn't want the assistants, then maybe we can make an attractive offer. Whipple showed that you can go straight from UMass HC to NFL assistant. We're on the coaching ladder. The UMass AD's inbox started receiving unsolicited resume's 90 minutes after it was announced Brown was leaving.
