I am fully committed to working with Athletic Director John McCutcheon and Coach Molnar to ensure that our participation at the premier level of college football continues to be a source of pride for years to come for everyone associated with our great university. I look forward to seeing all of our old and new UMass fans next season as we build an outstanding football program together. GO UMASS!”

There is a firm commitment to the long-term success of FBS football, despite some recent media stories that left an impression of uncertainty with some readers.
