Hal Mumme, wait…what?
UTSA’s coaching search is entering bizarro realms. Is UTSA interviewing Hal Mumme? Is David Bailiff considering leaving Rice for the River City? Is Curtis Looper the favorite? Paul Wulff, Seriously?
Who knew Hal Mumme had done enough after failing at New Mexico State and as SMU’s coordinator to merit consideration?
Whomever gets the nod, it looks like UTSA has more money to pay than first thought, reports are the salary could hit over $800,000.

To be honest, UCLA wasn’t exactly a dynamic offensive attack even with the aforementioned once in a lifetime quarterback.
UTEP Needs Coordinators
Sean Kugler got rid of both his coordinators to end the 2015 season. He’s expected to announce new coordinators on the 14th of January. The positions seem to be up to for grabs between any number of names. Brent Pease, of early 2000’s Baylor fame and most recently of the University of Washington is being mentioned a lot for the OC job while on the defensive side, it’s anybody’s guess.
