According to various sources, the 9-year Navy football coach was considering a move to BYU, but he declined the offer to become their next head coach.

“It was a long and agonizing two days, probably the hardest two days of my life, but the Naval Academy has been my life for the last 18 years, and I love it here,” Niumatololo said in a statement. “I love the kids that go to school here and the people I work with.”

Niumatololo is 67-37 in his nine seasons as head coach of the Midshipmen. He has made a bowl game in all but the 2011 season. This year, Navy is 10-2 on the year and 21st in the AP top 25. The Midshipmen are getting prepared to meet Pittsburgh in the Military Bowl.

According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Navy is favored in the Military Bowl, as the Midshipmen are getting odds of -3.5 points against Pittsburgh. The over/under total for the game has yet to be set. These two meet on Monday, Dec. 28 at 2:30PM ET from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD.
