The University of Massachusetts has announced on Thursday that they have fired head coach Charley Molnar after just two seasons on the job.
“We want to thank Charley Molnar for his service and the extraordinary time and energy he devoted to coaching the Minutemen as we entered competition in the Football Bowl Subdivision,” McCutcheon said. “It has become clear, however, that we must improve our performance in several areas and move in a new direction to ensure success in the FBS. Going forward, we must build a strong foundation to win on the field and stimulate enthusiasm and support for the program throughout the university community.”
Molnar was just 2-22 in his two seasons at the helm, which were the first two for the Minutemen as a member of the Football Bowl Subdivision. They became a full-fledged member of the Mid-American Conference in 2012. They were 2-14 in their first two years of MAC play.
UMass has also announced that the search for a new coach will begin immediately, with the help of a search advisory committee.
