UMass to bring back Don Brown as next head coach

  UMass to bring back Don Brown as next head coach UMass has made a decision on its next head coach. The Minutemen are trying to rekindle some past success and bringing back Don Brown as their head coach. The hiring was reported on Sunday night and is expected to be announced this week. UMass will be hiring Don Brown as its next head football coach. UMass athletic director Ryan Bamford is expected to conduct a team meeting tomorrow to announce Brown as the next head coach, according to sources inside the program. — Jeff Howe (@jeffphowe) November 22, 2021 Brown turned down a big offer from Arizona in order to return to UMass.

Michigan got over a major hurdle when it knocked off Ohio State last week. It was the Wolverines' first win over the Buckeyes since 2011 and the first of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh's tenure.

But with a loss to Iowa on Saturday in the Big Ten title game, the win over Ohio State would suddenly have far less meaning. It would once again be symbolic of Michigan reaching a major hill and failing to clear it, something that has plagued the maize and blue since Harbaugh's arrival.

However, this is certainly one of the best teams Harbaugh has fielded in his return back to Ann Arbor. The Wolverines, like the Hawkeyes, have been known for strong running games and defense this season. In fact, it's likely the best player on the field for both teams won't be a quarterback.

Report: Florida, Virginia Tech eyeing same head coach candidate

  Report: Florida, Virginia Tech eyeing same head coach candidate The Florida Gators and Virginia Tech Hokies may be competing with each other for one head coaching candidate. © SCOTT CLAUSE/USA TODAY Network via Imagn Content Services, LLC Louisiana coach Billy Napier is poised to be a hot candidate for bigger schools as the coaching carousel heats up, and that already appears to be the case. Florida is interested in bringing him in to replace Dan Mullen, and is aware of interest from Virginia Tech as well, according to Bruce Feldman of The Athletic. Have heard Florida has genuine interest in Billy Napier and knows that Va. Tech does too.

For Michigan, it will likely be defensive end Aidan Hutchinson or linebacker David Ojabo leading the charge for the Wolverines' defense. Hutchinson registered three sacks against Ohio State and is now the Wolverines' single-season record holder in that category. Ojabo, meanwhile, provides a nice complement, with 11 tackles for loss and 11 sacks as well.

But Iowa's offensive line boasts Tyler Linderbaum, the nation's top center. He'll likely be tasked with creating holes for star running back Tyler Goodson while Michigan's offensive line will have to do the same for Hassan Haskins. Haskins scored five touchdowns against Ohio State.

This game is a must win for Michigan and could help define Harbaugh's legacy at his alma mater. An Iowa win, however, likely keeps the Big Ten out of the playoff altogether.

Cincinnati HC Luke Fickell reportedly not interested in USC job

  Cincinnati HC Luke Fickell reportedly not interested in USC job Many have viewed Fickell as a natural candidate for USC. While Cincinnati is having an outstanding season and should receive College Football Playoff consideration, there is also the athletic director connection. USC AD Mike Bohn was the AD at Cincinnati when Fickell was hired as head coach there in 2017. USC boosters might be hoping Bohn can convince Fickell to take the job, but it doesn’t sound likely.Fickell is currently focused on stating the case for Cincinnati to be considered one of the four-best teams in the country.
