UMass Is Reportedly Considering Returning To The MAC

(CTN News) – In the upcoming season, UMass football will return to the conference in which it spent several seasons during Don Brown’s tenure.

In Mark Whipple’s first season as the Minutemen’s head coach, the Minutemen won the national title and set all kinds of records in their first season with Whipple as their coach. The Minutemen were once a Division I-AA (now FCS) power.

After joining the MAC for the 2012 season following a successful first stint as head coach under Don Brown, a few seasons after that first stint, UMass made the jump to the FBS level as a member of the American Athletic Conference. There was a full FBS schedule and a full MAC schedule by 2013.

This was only a temporary transition as in 2014 they announced their plan to leave the league in 2015 after declining to become an all-sports member of the league, and they began to play as an FBS independent team, where they remain to this day.

Multiple reports today state that they are now returning to the MAC, according to multiple reports today.

It was decided today by the Mid-American Conference board that UMass, starting with the 2025-26 school year, would become a full member of the conference.

Due to the fact that the program is now an independent since 2016, victories have become hard to come by under the leadership of numerous head coaches, UMass including Charlie Molnar, Walt Bell, and Whipple and Don Brown, who have served second stints.

This season, Brown has improved considerably from his first season. He went from a 1-11 record to a 3-9 record, and a move to the UMass MAC would help him if he is able to show additional improvement this season.
