AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -Massachusetts has promoted offensive coordinator Kevin Morris to head coach.
The school made the announcement Monday. Morris replaces Don Brown, who resigned earlier this month to become Maryland's defensive coordinator.
Morris was the offensive coordinator at Massachusetts during Brown's five years at the school. He also ran the offense under Brown for four seasons at Northeastern.
Morris' only previous head coaching experience came at Worcester Polytechnic Institute between 1993 and 1998.
Morris inherits a program that's seen significant recent success.
Brown finished with a 43-19 record in five seasons, leading the Minutemen to two NCAA tournaments, including the 2006 NCAA title game.
