UMass Staff Tracker (2021-22)

Keep track of how the new UMass staff under Don Brown is coming together via this page.
UMass - Staff Tracker

UMass fired Walt Bell after going just 2-23 over three seasons in the first week of November.

To fill the opening, UMass turned to a familiar face in Arizona defensive coordinator Don Brown, who was the last coach to leave the Minutemen with a winning record. He previously led the program to a 43-19 mark from 2004-08 before going on to coordinate defenses at Maryland, UConn, Boston College and Michigan.

Here, on the UMass Staff Tracker page, we lay out the new staff and also provide some perspective by noting who coached the position on the previous staff.
