We have confirmed that Notre Dame offensive coordinator Charley Molnar will be named the next head coach at UMass.
Molnar has been with Brian Kelly since their time together at Central Michigan, where Molnar tutored quarterback Dan LeFevour as he became the second player in NCAA history to rush for at least 1,000 yards and throw for over 3,000 yards.
Molnar's past coaching stops certainly helped make him the most appealing to UMass as they transition from the FCS to a member of the MAC. Molnar's past coaching stops include Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Kent State (all in the MAC), plus Central Michigan and Cincinnati.
The Minutemen are getting a proven offensive coach in Molnar and his background in the MAC will surely help the transition to FBS.
