  College football coach carousel: Every FBS coaching change in 2021 SN looks at the coaching changes in the FBS in 2021. The latest is a shocker: TCU's Gary Patterson.Akron's Tom Arth and UMass' Walt Bell were fired, which runs the total number of coaching changes to nine. There were 18 coaching changes last season, a number that likely will be surpassed given how many we've seen so far.

Don Brown (born July 31, 1955) is an American college football coach and former player. He is currently the defensive coordinator at the University of Arizona. Previously, he served as defensive coordinator Boston College and at the University of Connecticut and as the head football coach at

Another popular choice is former UMass head coach Don Brown , who left the school in 2008 in search of a better path to becoming an FBS head coach . The current Michigan defensive coordinator had no shortage of success in his first two stints with the Minutemen, leading the UMass defense during its 1998 national championship season and then coaching the team to the 2006 FCS title game. He is one of the nation’s premier defensive coordinators and should be able to turn around a struggling unit and help that side of the ball catch up to the offensive weapons.

UMass has made a decision on its next head coach.

  Jerry Brown focuses on saving California forests from fires SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — As smoke lingered in the air amid another destructive California wildfire season, former Gov. Jerry Brown invited a group to his ranch for an urgent conversation: What more could be done to save California's forests from wildfires? The reality of what has become annual fire devastation for the state has become more a part of Brown's life since he built his retirement home on a stretch of land where his great-grandfather settled in the 1850s, about 60 miles (96 kilometers) northwest of Sacramento. © Provided by Associated Press FILE — California Gov.

In 2004, Northeastern head coach Don Brown returned to UMass , where he'd served as defensive coordinator from 1998–1999 to take over as head coach .[20] During his tenure as head coach from 2004 to 2008, UMass posted the best five-year record in school history, 43–19. UMass promoted offensive coordinator Kevin Morris to head coach following Brown 's departure.[23] Under Morris, the Minutemen compiled a record of 16–17. On April 20, 2011, after decades of studies and speculation, the UMass Minutemen formally announced they elevated their football program to the NCAA Football

Anyway, a head coach at UMass might have the difficult task of having to change the mindset of a UMass campus community. The faculty are not better than Clemson or Alabama, but they are more powerful in ways that a head football coach at big program doesn't have to address. Barring a run of incredible luck, UMass isn't going to get the same levels of institutional support as others have pointed out already.

Brown, 66, was UMass’ head coach from 2004-2008 before leaving to become Maryland’s defensive coordinator. He went 43-19 over five seasons, topping out at 13-2 in 2006.

Brown served as Jim Harbaugh’s defensive coordinator at Michigan from 2016-2020. He was in his first season as the defensive coordinator at Arizona under Jedd Fisch. Now he will be returning to UMass, which has fallen upon tough times. UMass is 1-10 this season and has gone 2-25 the last three seasons. They fired Mark Whipple after consecutive 4-8 seasons in 2017 and 2018 and probably never thought it would get so much worse.
