UMass says it's hired a men's basketball coach. The announcement comes almost a week after the school's last pick backed out of the job.
If it all goes smoothly this time, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga coach Matt McCall will take the job. He's led the Chattanooga Mocs for two seasons now, earning a 48 and 18 record. His team made it to the NCAA tournament last year, losing in the first round.
McCall, who's 35 years old, arrives at UMass with fewer years of head-coaching experience than the school's first choice -- Pat Kelsey of Winthop University.
