UMass Football To Leave MAC After 2015
(AP) — The Mid-American Conference and Massachusetts football will part ways after the 2015 season.
The MAC has invoked a clause in its contract with UMass, triggered when Temple left the league in 2012, giving the school a choice between full membership and exiting the conference in two years.
UMass chose to end the relationship with the MAC and continue to be a member of the Atlantic 10 in most sports.
UMass made the move up from FCS to FBS in 2012 and joined the MAC. UMass has gone 2-22 in its two seasons as an FBS program, 2-14 in the MAC.
UMass athletic director John McCutcheon says the school remains “committed to FBS football.”
